Green Thumb...


I absolutely love my Papertreyink sets! I've got Green Thumb, which you see here, Out On a Limb, Piece of Cake and Holiday Treats. There are a few more (who am I kidding? I would take them all if I could afford it!) that I'd like to get. I just have the hardest time deciding! I'm debating between Beautiful Blooms, Everyday Blessings, Butterfly Kisses and It's a Celebration. I think the Beautiful Blooms is very versatile as well as Butterfly Kisses. I just can't decide!!!
There are also a number of stamps I'd like to get from some other companies...Lizzie Anne Designs, SU!, etc... And then there's the Nesties...I really want to get another set of those. I just got the rectangles and am thinking about the circles now. I love that U Cut at Home offers a 40% off coupon each month! It makes these guys really affordable. Oh, decisions, decisions. See? I get so caught up in deciding what I get, that I can't make up my mind and end up not getting anything (well, at least for the moment, then when my mind is made up...watch out!)
So, you'd probably like to hear a little about the card LOL!
I played along in the Color Challenge yesterday, CC163. I love these colors...Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip. YUM! My favorite colors! I had to pull out Green Thumb and give it some love. It has been sorely neglected since it came home to me. It along with a number of other sets. I know, I know, I've got to put some ink to these awesome stamps! That's what's got me to thinking...I really shouldn't get any more rubbah until I've put what I've got to use, at least once or twice! I better get going then, cuz I want to get some new rubbah!
Hope you are having a terrific week!
On a completely different note, we are spending this Saturday redoing the floor in our basement. The awesome part about this is that some of the guys from Jeff's baseball team are coming over to help! We've got to move furniture out, tear up the old carpet and then put in the new wood floor. I am SO thankful that these guys are coming over to help. They've been given good incentive though...they're having a poker party that night. And I'm cooking...chili!!

Fantastic card, Alana! I love this set too!
I kwym about deciding what stamps to get. My list of wants is always way longer than my list of can haves and it's hard to choose.
Thanks for the tip about the nesties. 40% off is a great deal!
Have fun and enjoy your new flooring. Great idea bribing the guys with dinner. Always works around here. Have a great day!!!

Yuuummmmmm-o! Chili!! Sounds like enough incentive for me! LOVE this card! The colors are beautiful!
If you are looking for opinions I personally really like the Butterfly Kisses set! ;) I soooo understand your having a hard time deciding though! I have a wish list as long as my arm and such a small budget...sigh!
Hope you are feeling better! Big hug!
