Peek at a New Simon Says Stamp Set

Last week on Facebook, Simon Says Stamp was looking for volunteers to agree to post a few cards with some of its September release.  I won!  I received a new set in the mail the other day and SSS asked that I post something with it on Facebook.

The set is a Christmas sentiment set, but -- since it is August -- my mind went elsewhere first.

I am always on the lookout to use those little images that companies add to sets.  In this case, I love the little happy banner and Love circle.  So, I added them to a sentiment from the set that is part of the September card kit, To Thine Own Shelf (great book lover's set).  Added a heart from another Simon Says Stamp set and a wooden button that was also part of the September card kit.

Cannot see in the photo, but above the top row, I scored a line.  To add images or sentiments in an angled line, using a ruler to draw with a pencil and using a gridded block are essential!

Hope to have a few more cards later this week.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Very happy, and that is a true story.

Stamps:  All Simon Says Stamp -- Peaceful Wishes, To Thine Own Shelf, and Best Mom Ever
