Shady Tree Studio Release Day!!! :)

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Woooo hooooo! The big day is here!!!!! The December releases from Shady Tree Studio are all ready for your crafty hands to start playing and creating! Hop on over to the store to grab a few of these cuties and then stop by the other DT members' blogs to see what else they have to inspire you! You know you are gonna have your socks blown off! :)

For today's card I am using the fun 6" x 8" set, "Groovy Kind of Love". I flipped over this one just as soon as I saw it! these big puffy letters took me back to Jr. High when I would spend my days doodling on my book covers, notebooks, page margins..... whatever I could find. guess High School wasn't really any different now that I think about it. and even though I was an adult..... (ahem..... now all of you snickering out there just hush up!)......when gel pens came out, I had to have them in all of the colors, especially the glitter ones.

So it was easy peasy to come up with a plan for what to make with this fun set. I grabbed one of the fun journal cards from Jenni Bowlin and pretended I was back in school doodling away...... then once I finished coloring, I grabbed my glitter gel pens and did add a extra little doodles of my own! do you ever doodle? I seem to always draw the same things over and over again - hearts, flowers, stars, and swirlies. that probably says something about me. not even gonna go there as to the 'what'!!! ;)

I added a strip of Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper, some fun felt Primas, vintage lime green buttons, and a baby clip tied with the same hot pink satin ribbon used along the side. it just seemed perfect to use the SU! punch along the top of the card as if I had just torn this from my little notebook to pass to a friend between classes!
Now don't forget to leave a comment on this or any of the Shady Tree Studios new release posts for a chance to win your very own "Sweet Romance" set. you must leave a comment by tonight at midnight, as I will post a winner first thing tomorrow morning, along with one more sample from this fun release!

  • edited to add - I am giving everyone some extra time to get those comments in. I will draw the winner for the "Sweet Romance" set on Sunday evening and post on Monday. so you have a few more days to leave a comment for your chance at a free stamp set! :)
