Well, it rained enough today that we put off going camping for yet another day. The bright spot in the day came when the doorbell rang and a box of brand new SU goodies from the new catalogue was sitting there on the front deck.
What I can't quite believe is that I actually mounted all of the new stamps today - AND, get this, I actually stamped with one of the new sets - ON THE SAME DAY IT ARRIVED IN MY HOUSE! When I saw the sketch challenge posted tonight I chose the new set Beautiful Season. I just love the chickadees that hang around our yard so couldn't resist this set (even though I say "no more Christmas sets" every time a new catalogue is published).
Pretty straightforward - stamped, coloured, added some dazzling diamonds, did a little embossing and layered it all together.
Love this set. :)
PT: Oops. None on this one! But I used brand new stamps on the day I got them! No wonder I forgot to punch anything!

Such a nice card! I just ordered the tulip border EF and can't wait to get it. I love the way you colored in your chickadee and the rest of the image, great job! Very nice stamp. I really like the layout on this card. An overall great card!! TFS!!!!!

I had to laugh at what you said, I could just HEAR myself talking...*no more Christmas sets, oh but this one with the chickadee is SO cute, okay, just one...*
Love your card, the embossing, colors and of course that beautiful cheery little chickadee!!
