A good day

Hi there! 
 
Today is review preview day for the Sweet November May release over on the ATS blog. The Garden Gnome Girls are back in the spotlight and if you happened to watch my Make It Monday video from a couple weeks ago, you would have spotted Adele with the added texture stamped onto her hat.
Of course I had to color her up with her new straw hat and this was the perfect excuse. All I had to do was find some papers I liked to give me my color scheme for Adele and I would be set. I spotted this pack of Chloe's Closet epoxy stickers that my crafty pal, Tress, had sent me and they totally inspired the entire direction and paper choice for this card. Thanks Tress! :)


Ok, there is even more review preview fun and inspiration from my fellow ATS teamies on the All That Scraps blog so be sure to hop on over there too! And all of the new May stamps can be found in the ATS store here!
