Too Kind, DD80 & SSSC198

Greetings on this Thanksgiving Monday! I have a super busy week ahead. The early part of the week will be spent shopping, cooking and cleaning. I'll be hosting Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. Then, the weekend will be spent decorating for Christmas, inside and out. How about you?

I'm taking a break from my Autumn and Holiday projects today with this feminine card using the Too Kind Stamp Set, one of my favorites. I love the simple two-step blossoms, and enjoy trying them out in different color combinations.

A Triple Threat at Dynamic Duos? What?!  I love this idea! I also love the colors. Pinks and Greens are my favorite combo and I had to play along.

This sweet sketch from Karen at Sweet Sunday is so much fun and perfect for my project. The DT has some really awesome projects, too. You should go check them out!

I stamped the first layer of my blossoms using Blushing Bride ink, and the second layer in Raspberry Ripple. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the layers perfectly. The sentiment is stamped in Black Stazon, always my black ink of choice as it never smudges.
