Swirly Stamps!

Ethel sent me a birthday present today of the awesome Rhonda Farrer Swirls Stamps! I've wanted them for ages but they never, ever have them in stock at AC Moore and I heard they are at Walmart, but I refuse to shop there, and I never decide it's worth paying full price and shipping... Anyhow when people started getting them at Stinkin Walmart I was bummed and all ready to fork over whatever I had to just to get my hands on them! Well what comes in the mail today? The stamps! Hurray!!! It was a total suprise and I LOVE them! Of course I had to make cards today even though I'm sick.
This one has circles punched from the index sheet on the My Minds Eye pattern paper I got at costco. You know that thingie in the front that shows a tiny bit of each paper? It was too pretty to throw away. I stuck those all down then stamped one of the swirls and a Just Johanna bird standing on top of that. "Thanks" is a Purple Onion stamp and I colored the bird with prismacolor markers.

This one is a bit much really, I just wanted to use as many swirls as possible. I love them so much. I stamped them all twice, once with brown then offset them a bit with cool caribbean ink. Bird and words are Just Johanna and Purple Onion again. The pattern paper is TAC. This one is actually one of the Split Coast Sketches but I don't know which one right now. I will try to come update this post with a link later. (I'm sick remember, you can't ask me to go dig that up.)
I have good medicine and a great DH taking care of me, I'm feeling much better already.
I have gotten two other birthday cards already too! It's fun.
oh and today I shopped for YOU! I got the gamsol for the Birthday Blog Candy, so be sure to enter!

Sorry Erin but Walmart does alot for our troops and that in itself is a wonderful reason to shop there. Thanks for letting me say that cause my son is one of those troops.

always feel welcome to respectfully express a view that differs from mine. I wish you had felt comfortable signing but either way is ok.

I have nothing but respect and support for our troups.
