I love CRATE PAPER!!

I received this package of Crate Paper (Twirl) from Simon Says Stamp WELL over a year ago, and finally decided to open it up and use it (I WASN'T hoarding.....LOL.... ok, maybe I was!) The base is a cranberry colour that was in my stash (it's not crate paper) but the rest is. The pink, the floral, the brown and the green. Crate paper is double sided, textured DP and is a nice thickness. I LOVE IT!!! So, I copied a layout from a birthday card I received and made these 2 cards for birthdays. I can't tell you who the first one is for because I know she reads my blog. This was an image given to me by my friend Char, I think it might be Sugar Nellie but I'm not 100% sure! I just thought she was adorable all dressed up! The second one is for Diana Crick, the owner of Scor-Pal and Magnolia-licious. This stamp is Tilda with bird - one of my fave's!!! I coloured both images with gamsol and my koh-i-noor pencils. The cards are 5 1/4 inch square.

That is tooo funny!
I love my Crate Paper too! It rocks! I almost hate to use it because it is so *special*, heavy weight, great colors, designs.
SMILES!
