You're So Vintage - Treat Bag

Hello friends!  It feels like an eternity since I've blogged (even though it hasn't even been a week!)  I picked up a horrible virus and spent the last week feeling like death and having ZERO energy.  My husband and I were both terribly sick last weekend, just as our son was finally picking up speed since he was Patient Zero.  It was BAAAAD NEWS in this house - neither of us could keep our eyes open or do anything and he was bouncing off the walls after being cooped up for the week prior.  Ugh.  I hope we don't do that again for a long time!

Anyway, first and foremost, you've probably noticed there's been a little makeover around here!  I've updated the header of the blog and changed my watermark/logo to freshen it up a bit.  It's still me, though - just a little bit of change for summer.  :)

I've got some fabulous projects coming up since I've finally had a chance to create with all of my new goodies!  I can't wait to start sharing these new and fabulous items with you.  Starting with my favourite new stamp set, That Thing You Did.  It's packed full of fun and funky sentiments, including my new favourite addendum to basically everything: "...but not in a creepy way."  ;)

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die seriously comes together in no time flat - and isn't this a nice little treat for a friend or co-worker?  These are perfect for when you want to give me than a card but not an entire gift - just fill it up with some candies or a gift card and you're all set.  So cute.

A little tip with this set - use your sponges to create multi-coloured images!  For this one, I stamped the whole sentiment in Crushed Curry and then used a sponge to wipe the yellow off the edges.  Then I sponged Calypso Coral ink onto one end, and Bermuda Bay onto the other, overlapping the colours slightly.   Give the whole thing an "ahhhhhh" with your sexy breath (you know what I mean, right?  Hot breath, not cold blowing!) and then stamp.  It fades from one colour to the next and creates such a pretty effect!

Thanks for popping back and checking in today - it's so nice to be back and I'll see you again tomorrow!
