Sweetpea new release and sale

















Hi, saturday already. Where did the time go? I meant to do a tutorial on thursday and before I knew it it's saturday! Today I was supposed to go to a shop that used to be here in town, but moved outside of town. They have a much bigger space and today they had an event. Unfortunatelly I wasn't feeling well enough to go. I'm so disappointed that I haven't been able to get my life back from this stupid illness!

Instead I'm resting in the sofa and trying to crochet my little dachshund. Trying to make the best of it and focus on the future...

Right now  I want to show you my card I made for the sweetpea new release. 
This stamp and three more are on sale through sunday 28:th. There are also ministamps on this sheet. You can see and buy them HERE. 
I love how different they are from the other stamps. The frames make them whimsical and you can both keep it or cut them out as some of the girls have done on the blog.

I used my new nestie butterfly die and embellished it with pink pearls. I just love this paper and have been saving it for ages. As soon as I saw this image I knew I had to use this paper with it. I'm very happy with how it turned out. I like keeping it simple when using sweetpea stamps. I think they speak for themselves. The quote is also a sweetpea stamp from sheet 8, plate 30.

















I used a sketch from the new sweetpea challenge blog. 
Thought it was simple and perfect to make the image pop.
