Yeah, I couldn't wait...

I was going to post this tomorrow, but I couldn't wait. I got my Verve stamps today and sigh, there are just lovely. Of course, I am still playing with my October Afternoon papers (hang on, there is still more :) )
The chipboard is from Art Warehouse. I painted the outside and covered the inside with cardstock. The ribbon is from American Crafts. Stickles from Ranger.
These flowers are very cool, lots of ins and outs layering possibilties, which to me is a good time. :) I did cheat on the stitching today and pulled out an old Hero Arts stamp.
I used Palette inks on PTI Vanilla cardstock. Orangerie, Beaux Arts Blue, Sunflower, Landscape, and Burnt Umber (now Dark Chocolate) were the colors.

This marks my last post before I leave for CHA. I am planning on blogging every night I am there, so check back in. :) It may be late CST time.
as always, thanks for stopping by!
