You are a Class Act!

First, I apologize if I have not gotten to your blogs. My computer has once again become ill. I think it needs a new fan, as it works for a few minutes, and shuts off as soon as it gets 'hot', but as it is a mini tower, there are none just laying around, so it could be another week or so before I get a new one. Thanks for being patient with me!

On to today's business!!!

I was so excited to drive into town to the Post Office the other day and find HAPPY MAIL!

I received a wonderful yellow envelope with a new set of stamps, from a stamping friend! The stamps were one of Gina K. Designs' new sets, "Gleefully Yours", illustrated by Nina Brackett...what fun!

I needed a clean and simple card, and just couldn't wait to open the stamps and ink them up. Another wonderful surprise! I had not seen any of Gina's new 'pre-cut' rubber yet, and OMG, how delightful! I am impressed, and in love - what a great time saving concept!

My card is on TAC's Birch CS, and is background stamped with Versamark. The image and sentiment are stamped with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. Distressing is also done with Tea Dye. The blue CS was some blue sparkle CS from TAC, and the trims are from my stash.

You can be sure you'll be seeing more from me using this set!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great Wednesday!!!

Stop by tomorrow morning for a very special treat!

Can't tell you what, because it is a top secret mission, but I can guarantee, you will like it!!!

Hugs and smiles...
