~ Clear and Simple Stamps April Release ~ On the Mend II
....... happy today! Clear and Simple Stamps is releasing their April set-of-the-month. adorable, stamp-a-licious goodies --- On the Mend II ---
First of all, that cute flower stamp is from the set........ and the ruler/tape measure stamp made perfect stems! :o)
I love this sentiment..... am using it all over the place! And those darling bobbins are in the set too. Wrap them with fuzzy twine and you're all set to go.
Lots of CSS buttons on this card: the pinks, creams, and neutrals all bunched together.
Next up..... another cute flower, more rulers......
The sweetest sewing machine ever!! have you ever seen the likes? I love it! and it looks just like the one I use in real life :o)
Another lovely sentiment. That font is so gorgeous, I could look at it all day.....
^ this card ^ I made for a special friend... a sweet friend who has indeed been very kind to me. Let me tell you, real friends love you for who you are, rather than what they can get out of you. I love that about my friends, and I try my best with God's help to be that kind of a friend too.
Next card, with that same, "love-beyond-measure" text strip...... I became a little cruel to the stamp at this point and bent it all out of shape to get the curve I wanted ......... don't worry about doing that to your stamps tho. They nicely un-bend when you pull it off the stamping block. Try it -- you'll like it!
I love me that little bird-nest...... from this etsy store. Ask for the eggs in any color you want, with the nest in light or dark brown. I'm needing more already......
That lovely blue-bird image is from a Crafty Secrets vintage postcard kit. I only used half the postcard, and saved the other half for a rainy day......... when I have no more money left to buy postcard kits ;o)
Here's a quick peek at what the whole On the Mend II set contains:
It's sooo cute! you're going to need On the Mend I too, I bet.
Thanks for joining me today to welcome the CSS April SOTM! happy shopping!
No, I didn't do any April Fool's joke on you cuz I'm not feeling brainy enough to think of something. Maybe tomorrow :o)
