Where Did January Go?

Seriously, tomorrow is February 1st!!!!!! Now let me look at a few positive points about that statement...it means we are getting closer to spring (HOORAY) and the new releases for Clear Dollar Stamps are available. Okay, so February is a good thing after all!!!!! My first sample is of a cute pineapple single stamp. I inked it up with Crushed curry and Garden green, stamping it twice and cutting out one. The one I cut out I sponged a little Close to cocoa ink on then popped it up over the first image, offsetting it a bit. The welcome sentiment comes from the set Nice Neighborhood.
If you can describe an alligator as cute, this is the one to do it to!!!!! He is a single stamp and a lot of fun to play with. Are you like me, keep in touch with some friends only at Christmas time with a holiday card? Well this year I decided to call them as well. We talked about getting together for lunch. So as to hold us at our word, I made this set of "Let's Have Lunch!" cards. Who can refuse an invitation with an alligator on the card??!!! The sentiment comes from the Pretty Perches set.

Every month, Clear Dollar Stamps offer a Stamp of the Month, a cute set FREE with your $50 purchase. February's set is called Sweet Circles and there are so many possibilities of things you can create with it. Here I used one of the full circles and the branch to make a tree and put together two of the phrases to make the sentiment. It really is a fun set! Other talented DT ladies created samples for you to see, and here they are:
Thanks again for stopping by. I'll see you at midnight at CDS for the latest release. I have a feeling my shopping cart will be full...again!!!!!

These are cute! I like the twine on your pineapple card, the gator is darling and a sweet little set of cards. I am sure you will have fun at lunch with your friend. Cute cards girlie.

Linda, there's some really nice work here...your pineapple card is so pretty and I love the richness of the colors that you used for the color scheme and that cool twine embellishment. The alligator card is so clever and cute. The SOM card is beautiful in layout, color scheme and all the pretty details. Love them all!
