some new rubbah!!

***It's Friday afternoon...I just wanted to let you all know that it will be a few days before I am back up & stamping!! I have a muscle spasm in my lower back & it isn't letting me get much of anything done!!! I am waiting to hear back from the doctor about the results of my x-rays. Thanks for stoppin' in & for all the lovely comments you have been leaving! ...chat at ya later!!!*** :)
Hi friends!! Happy Wednesday morning to you! I got a few new things from Mr. Brown last night so I couldn't resist playing a little. I think of all the new In Colors that Stampin' Up! will be debuting in August Baja Breeze is my favorite! I love this new hostess set as well. (customers can earn this cute set when the new catalog is out on August 11th) Ok I am going to get right to card deets cuz I need to go get my nails done...they are not looking so great!
I stamped the window image in black staz-on. I cut out the shutters and popped them up a little to make them stand out from the window. I cut out the windows with my hobby blade and put acetate behind it so it looked like a window. The apricot piece in the upper window is supposed to be like a window shade. I stamped the little flowers and also cut out the vases and popped them up a little behind the acetate. I also added the bird at the last minute and covered him with crystal effects. I have to say I LOVE this color combo too!! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

How awesome that you put something on the window so its actually reflective and looks "real".
