I love playing with new things!

OK, let me explain. Today, my boys and I went over to Heidi's (Pinkhedgehog) house. You see, not only did she have some Stampin Up stuff for me, but she has a TON of blackberries and grapes too! So after we all filled our buckets with lots of sweet fruit, Heidi and I sat down and tackled today's SCS sketch . Isn't it fun to stamp with friends? I rarely have a chance to do it and I think Heidi and I should try this more often!!
She got some new goodies too and I got to try them out!! Yipeee! I really love this Papertrey Ink set called Fruit Firsts. And the new SU! paper Autumn Vine goes with it sooooo well! I may have to order a pack for myself after making this card. We also thumbed through her neglected stack of Fiskars templates, and found this fun diamond pattern which I used for the small rust piece.
You can check out Heidi's card here. Don't you just love how she hand stitched her burlap string around the wheat bundle? She's so crafty!!
