Stamp Simply using NEW things!

Hi everyone! It's time for another Stamp Simply challenge! This week, Sharon has challenged us to USE SOMETHING NEW. This is a great challenge for the first week in the NEW year! So, bring in the new year and use some of those Christmas goodies you received/bought for yourself *wink*!

You know what I like about Sharon's challenges? They are all about stamping simply! These last couple days I have been dealing with a fussy tooth (to put it mildly) and didn't have the time or energy for anything BUT simple! LOL!

My card uses my NEW {ippity} Stamps Devoted set, my NEW copic marker (YG93) and some NEW Fancy Pants Vintage Valentine pattern paper. I stamped the branch image out in Soft Suede ink 2 times. I added tiny Kaiser pearls in Rose and wrapped the pink burlap string around the front 2 times and tied in a small bow.

Speaking of NEW stuff! Check out these pics. My mom got the boys a really old dinosaur alphabet stamp setfrom Goodwill. Seriously, my mom has the BEST luck at the Goodwill! WHO finds a complete LIKE NEW set like this? Anyway, here are the boys having fun today with their new stuff!

Everyone is welcome to play along!! Sharon has Mr. Linky up and working, so be sure to link up your challenge card to her bloggy. And, be sure to use keyword SSNOTIME120 when you upload to SCS. Be sure to stop by the team's blogs to see all their thank you cards!
