MFPS... Enjoy the View

Happy Sunday! I had a crafting friend come visit me this week from Alabama (I'm in South Carolina) and we had lots of fun! She brought some cartridges I don't have, so I was able to play with some new cuts while she was here. New cuts are always FUN!

The card I want to show you today is from one of the carts she brought, SESAME STREET SEASONS. I just thought this little bug was too cute.. he's also so very cool all laid back in his sunglasses.

I'm on the Senior Design Team for Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps, and starting this week we have a new stamp set to show you every day for the October stamp releases. Brand new stamps! Woo-Hoo! I used one of the new stamps for the sentiment on this card. The stamp set is "ENJOY THE VIEW." I can't show you the complete set until tomorrow, but here's a sneak peek at a project using one of the sentiment stamps in this set...
