Sweet friends

Hey guys!

I know some of you may be waiting for Sweet November sneak peeks and I promise that they are coming soon! Just check back next week when all of the fun will begin... lots of super sweet CHA goodies that I can't wait to share with ya. :)
And the excitement doesn't end there, I just passed my two year blogaversary on Saturday and don't be surprised to see another 1000 sheets candy in the near future as well! hint, hint, wink, wink! ;)

As for today, I've got a card featuring a mix of stamps that I just had to put together... it's like they were made for each other I tell ya! I got the Sweet Greetings Pure Innocence because not only was she too cute with her stick of cotton candy but I also had just the cotton candy stand to go with her from the Craft's Meow set. At first I thought that was going to be it but then I was looking at another Pure Innocence sweetie called Water Lily and realized that with an easy alteration of wiping away her hand and stamping in the cotton candy hand in its place, I could have two little friends enjoying a day at the carnival. Because this was so heavy on stamped images I kept the rest of the card pretty minimal, with just a bit of paper and twine to finish it all off. Oh and once again I spritzed a cotton ball and added it to their candy for some cool texture.

Ok, time for me to wrap this up and go get myself ready for work. Talk to ya later! :)
