My first post with October Afternoon

If you are a new friend stopping by from the October Afternoon Blog, WELCOME!! If you are already a friend you know how much I love their stuff.  I am so thrilled to be designing for them this month. Today is my first post on their blog and I created a collection of cards using the brand new Travel girl collection. You can check in out here. I also had a birthday to go to this weekend for a sweet little 1 year old farm boy and so I thought that I would create this little card with the Sasparilla collection.


There is no doubt that one of my favourite OA embellishments are the word stickers, all by themselves they are the little rock stars. Use one or use ten.
They are a fabulous and inexpensive embellishment.


 October Afternoon was so generous, {and since my collection is a little out of hand} I would like to share the love with a give away.
Just leave a comment on this blog post and I will enter your name into a draw for these brand new Travel girl Stamps.




and just because they go so well together I am also going to include 3 brand new sets of spectrum noir alcohol markers.


I will choose a winner on the last Friday of June.
Thanks for stopping by
Hopefully we will see you next Friday
TTFN :)
