Playful Colors

Boy did I have fun in the stamp room last night!  I started out trying to clean up my mess and ended up making two fabulous cards.  That means two posts today.  :)  Scroll down to see my other card.

Don't you just love that Space Needle die cut?  I flipped when I saw it over on Amy Tsuruta's blog and asked her where she found it. She told me Impress in Tukwila, WA and then said she would die cut some for me and sent them to me.  Can you believe it?  What a nice thing to do!   I've met some of the nicest people through my blogging adventure.


This little beauty is the stamp I picked up from Impress.  You can order custom stamps with your city or state or country.  I'm thinking about buying a Washington stamp, since I don't live in Seattle. I added some washi tape to the banner so it would stand out behind the die cut.

Thanks again Amy for your generosity and for pointing me to my new favorite happy place.  Perhaps I will see you in the store someday.

How cool is that Space Needle and sentiment? I'm a Washington girl, too but way on the other side in little ol' Walla Walla. It would be very cool to have a stamp with your town on it! The card looks gorgeous too, just perfect for this color combo! So glad you're joining us this week at Colour Me...!
