PMS day 2 sneak peek and i'm over 30000 hits!!!

>> Thursday, June 4, 2009

Last night just before i went to bed i took a peek at my blog and i had passed 30,000 hits! This is kinda a big deal to me! I started my blog just under a year and a half ago so i'm pretty proud of this accomplishment. I also very recently passed 100 followers. So i think i'll celebrate with some blog candy since i never did anything for my bloggerversary (its always around christmas and there is so much else going on). June is also my birthday month, so i do have a lot to celebrate. Stay tuned for more info on how to enter the blog candy. :)

But now it's time to show you my sneakie peek for today! I'm so excited about this new set from PMS. To me its one of those "easy sets". Sure there is a lot you can do with it and techniques, and layers and things that may not be so easy. But it's also one of those sets that when you need to make a quick card, you can pull out this set and go!

The set's called Nature's Song.



I also used the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. They are having the first annual card showdown! I discovered this sketch blog from a new "online buddy" Maria. How fun that the first sketch i am participating in happens to be a big challenge with a prize. You gotta love that! :)


The stamp i inked up and stamp out on white Neenah cardstock but then i went back on top with some brown shimmery chalk to give a little bit of a shadow.  The shimmery-ness of it you can only really see if you angel the card in the light, but it's a pretty effect.
