Appealing Apricots


I was in Marc’s recently picking up some school supplies Shane needed. He was looking at cars or something and I happen to be looking at the office supplies in the close out section, when I found this stamp set. I really liked that diamond shaped stamp for making my own patterned paper and that larger stamp with the whatever you might call it has potential. The best part was this entire set was a mere $.099. Yep, 99 cents!

I used Apricot Appeal paper and ink and love the look. Buttons are courtesy of my button jar which contains a mix of buttons from here, there, and everywhere. Twine is courtesy of Pat Catans.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
