Saturday Simple-Sale A Bration Preview!

Good Morning Stampers! Dave and I have been on the road the past two days working and I'm so glad it's Saturday. We plan on going snowmobiling this afternoon as we have lots of snow here in Maine so far this year.

A cool new stamp set will be available to you very soon during Sale-A-Bration which will starting on January 22nd. I decided to use the vintage antique bicycle because I think it is just so adorable:

I had first made this card for the Create with Connie & Mary Spring Edition and found out I used the wrong stamp set and had to create another card. That's why you see the watermark for their website on this card!

The new stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Flyer called "Feeling Sentimental". I also fell in love with the sentiment from the new stamp set "Wishes Your Way" and thought I would make my little antique bike image look like it was in motion to go with the "blowing" part of the sentiment. What is really cool about this stamp image is that it comes from a stamp set you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

Did you notice the oval paper piercing around my stamped image? Another great new product from the Spring Catalog called "Occasions Paper Piercing Pack". Use the template and your "Paper Piercing Tool" and pierce away to your hearts content. Quick and a lovely finish to a card!

Oh and I almost forgot to point out the new ribbon "Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon". Just a little sliver folded in half and secured with a Mini Brad is all that this card needed to complete the look!
