That news is exciting enough but I can't leave you without a bit of crafting...! Don't you just love it when two stamps from different stamp sets look as if they were made for each other? Today's card happened because I had a light bulb moment when Fabulous Florets and Secret Garden were out on my desk. Come and have a look:
I noticed that the solid flower from Fabulous Florets looked rather like one of the outline flowers from Secret Garden so I thought I'd try combining them. I love the effect of the solid and outlined images together.
Here's a close up where you can see that I've used solid and outline foliage from both sets too. The background has been roughly sponged in using Island Indigo ink and I coloured just one of the outlined flowers and added a zing of Summer Starfruit to the centres of both.
The sentiment is a wonderful one from Hopeful Thoughts which I use often and for many different reasons.
Here's what you'll need for this project
Stamps: Fabulous Florets, Secret Garden, Hopeful Thoughts
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, Stazon black
Card stock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake

For those of you that couldn't believe how unhandy I was with my husband's mobile phone yesterday, it isn't an isolated event, believe me! Not long ago I was meeting my daughter in town and messaged her using my own phone to let her know I'd been slightly delayed. "Just have to pop into one more shop," I texted and then attempted to add: "See you in a mo." The phone, which obviously sensed weakness and knew who was boss, refused to allow me to say 'mo' and kept changing it to 'month'. The thought of my daughter receiving a message telling her that I'd been delayed by a month had me whooping with laughter in the shopping centre.
Have a lovely weekend!
