Always Kind with Playful Backgrounds

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I'm sure by now you know that I'm just a bit obsessed with the Playful Backgrounds stamp set from Stampin' Up! Don't tell Gorgeous Grunge but it could be the reason why that favorite is being neglected. Oops!

This is the first time I've used the brushstroke stamp and yep, I love it just as much as the others.

Card: Dapper Denim and Whisper White
Ink: So Saffron and Dapper Denim
Stamp sets: Playful Backgrounds and Me = Grateful (another neglected favorite)
Tools and embellishments: Corner Punch
Adhesives: Tombow
