Swallowtail and Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year!!!! I want to thank each and everyone of you for visiting my blog and tell you how much I appreciate you. You really do make my day with your wonderful comments.

So to you…. Happy New Year and may it be blessed with all things good! Love, Laughter and Health. I guess a little prosperity wouldn’t hurt either would it? I wish all those things to you.

Today I’d like to feature the new Swallowtail Stamp from Stampin’ Up! My oh my it gorgeous. I was intrigued with the color combo they used in the mini and had to try it myself. It’s a total case except for the sentiment and I added a Mat of Pool Party.


It’s really difficult to capture the beauty…so here are a few other shots….and you see the glimmer?

Isn’t it beautiful? The pictures do not do it justice. I’m going to make a set of these for a dear friends Birthday Gift. I just know she’ll love them.

I gotta tell you it looks like a silk screen….no kidding.

Card Base is Very Vanilla, followed by Summer Starfruit. The image is embossed with the new Pool Party Embossing Powder. Then painted with the Champagne Shimmer Paint. So easy and so beautiful.

Happy New Year!!!!!

P. S. Don’t forget I’m sending in the order for the first Spring Mini Share tomorrow. Want to be included? Just email me at and I’ll get you in. It’s an awesome share!!!
