Singing a Happy Song...

I am in love with these stamps...plain and simple.
You will be seeing many of them used in a bunch
of my projects over the coming days as I have been
playing with them a lot.  So what did I use?

The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps.
I mentioned a couple days ago that I recently started working 
with their design team and I am really happy 
with what I have done so far.

The tree trunks and the tiny bird are from one
of my all time favorite companies, Memory Box.

So why else am I singing a happy song?
Look at what arrived in my mailbox today
from my UK bestie, Sarah.....

here's another view....

I love this stamp set...
Sarah bought one for each of us : )

and how cool is it that this extra large sheet of
collage old 'documents' actually mentions
Rockford, Illinois
(which is where I live)

This sweet birdcage votive from one of my
favorite stores, John Lewis.

and finally, something Sarah and I
cannot live without.....

how cute is this little box?!
Not only all these goodies arrived, but stamps from some of
our upcoming sponsors from The Play Date Cafe.
What a fun mailbox day!

Now...don't forget...tomorrow is the
100th Challenge over at EtsyInspired and I am
honored to be a guest designer there for the
entire month of August.

So come play with us!
