Tickled Pink and Unforgettable Get Well!

I recently received my Tickled Pink kit from CTMH (the new promo that is currently underway), and WOW! I am not much of a flower stamp girl, but I have to say, this set goes way beyond the kit and die-cuts!

I got to reach for this set the other day when I was making my mother-in-law a Get Well card. She just had hip-replacement surgery, so between Eric and I both getting sick, we have been to the hospital to visit. And nothing brightens up a hospital room like a pretty card!

I used a new template Jeanette posted on her blog (http://www.jeanettelynton.com/). It is from the new Wishes template book! I can't wait to get my own copy, but Jeanette posted one of the templates from it as a sneak preview. Here is the card I came up with:



Paper: Unforgettable
Stamp: Tickled Pink, Say it in Style (May '08 SOTM coming back in the Summer '09 Idea Book!!)
Ink Colors: Blush, Sorbet, Juniper
Embellishments: 3D Foam Squares


This flower is GREAT for layering! The front is dimensional with foam squares under the matted square and the flower, too. My friends could always tell an "Erin-Card" because I always fold down a corner of the double-sided B&T paper... but after I saw the rolled corners in one of the Idea Books, it has taken over! I love the little touch it adds!

That's it for today, but stay tuned... I have some GREAT things planned for this week as we count down to the release of the new Idea Book!

Lots of Love,

-Erin-
