The little things that make me happy here on Bliss Road~~Emily Keaton

Hey

This evening I had the itch to make a little something, so I put together this all-occasion "hey" card for the Market Street Stamps January Block Party:

I used the MSS Sweet Lace background, stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. With pretty background stamp patterns like these, who needs patterned paper??? I did some creative inking on the MSS Happy Pumpkin set to obtain my "hey" sentiment. Perfect for checking in on a friend!

I'll also enter this over
in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

See you back here soon--thanks for stopping by!
Emily

So what kind of creative inking did you do to get the sentiment? I'll have to go check it out (now I'm curious!). I don't know if I've seen the bg stamp before, but it looks super pretty!!
