Gonna Miss Bliss

Well, my post today is going to be short and sweet............I've been away all weekend (on a DATE weekend with my hubby).  It was awesome! Got to take a bubble bath in one of those huge hotel bathtubs with NO kids at the bathroom door saying "Mooommmm......what are you dooooing in there?..........are you taking a bath?..........can I come in too?  Thanks to my brother-in-law for babysitting while we were away.  And thanks to Natasha for holding down the fort and posting for me while I was away :). 

I have to say that Bliss is one of my favorite sets from Sale-a-bration.  I love how detailed and versatile the images are.  For all the ladies from my stamp club and classes who got this set free during Sale-a-bration, I wanted to share a couple of ideas for this set.  For those of you who would still like to get this set, it is still available for 4 more days (free with a minimum $60 order).  Contact me to get yours today!

Stamp Sets: Bliss
Card Stock: Textured Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso.
Inks: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry
Assessories:  Linen Thread, Vintage Trinkets, Pearls, Curly Label Punch, Dimensionals.

Actually, I have to say how proud of myself I am.  Both of these cards are actually quite simple and don't take a ton of products to replicate................AND............they both lie flat and fit into envelopes! (hee hee Natasha).    Well, hope you like the cards, and that this gives you a couple of ideas on how to use that gorgeous stamp set you got for FREE during Sale-a-bration.
