girls holding hands

I had a girlfriend who was in hospital for the third time in less than 3 months so I didn't really want to give her the standard 'get well soon' card. So I remembered I had got this cute stamp set just before Christmas and hadn't had time to play with it and thought it would be PERFECT for her! It's called Kimono Kids and it has six stamps including the two girls, a string of lanterns, a fan, an umbrella and a sentiment "one good friend is worth a thousand relatives" all for only $46.95 for wood mount or $37.95 for clear mount. I used my Stampin'-ma-jig to place the girls in the right place to hold hands!
I just LOVE sitting down and colouring in stamped images. It's so relaxing - bringing happy memories from childhood of colouring in books! The Stampin' Up! marker pens are PERFECT for this as they have both a paint brush type end one end and on the other is a fine nib - so you can get in all those small places (although I think I went over the line once or twice! shhhh don't tell anyone! hehe). I used the Hostess bundle of 6"x6" paper pack for the backgrounds. Lastly it's mounted on a Basic Black card. My friend really enjoyed it.
Don't forget that on the 25 January Stampin' Up!s biggest promotion of the year starts - our SALE-A-BRATION!! that's where you get to pick a FREE stamp set (4 to chose from) for every $120 spent - plus if you have a workshop with sales over $600 the hostess (you) get to pick another one!!! so contact me if you haven't got your Sale-a-bration booklet yet.
