Happy Monday! Well, after a really wet, windy and cold week-end, I am glad to see the sun today even if it is still chilly!! I did manage to get a few things done in my craft room this weekend. Yeah!!

Today I want to show you a card I made using one of the new CC Designs Sugarplum images. These images are just darling!! This week Stamp & Create’s Product spotlight is CC Designs stamps from All That Scraps. When an item is spotlighted it also means a sale at Stamp & Create! CC Designs Sugarplum images will be 25% off!! You don’t want to wait too long though because these are going to go fast!

For my product Spotlight this week I used the image Kiki La Rue Puppy Kiki from Stamp and Create.

I used the sketch from Fussy and Fancy challenge created by my blogging friend Mindy and several products from Stamp and Create to create it: teardrop lace, aqua prima cameo roses, Mandarin cameo prima roses, Kaisercraft snow pearls, and Basic Grey Kioshi paper. I also used my new MS large shell border punch at the bottom, American Crafts ribbon, ZVA Creative Pearls and some MS large pearls in the top corners.
