Thank You/ CR84FN 10

Hello my sweet blog friends.  Are you having a great weekend so far?  We have a forecast of up to 8 inches of snow and everyone is running around wiping all the grocery stores of all the food.  I am so ready for spring.  I don't want any more snow.

It is time for the next color challenge at CR84FN.  I thought this dress form inside this adorable WM frame was so sweet.  I have been seeing dress forms all over blog land again and decided it was time to get mine back out.  I am horrible about buying stamps and only using them once.  You are going to see some more of my collection soon.  I sometimes feel like as soon as the next new stamps sets come out that I can't use my older ones because they just aren't cool anymore.  That isn't so.  I have noticed at PTI that they are bringing out some older sets and having the DT use them with new sets.  I like that a lot.  We spend a lot of $$ on our supplies for them to just sit there and collect dust.  Don't you agree?

I used a couple different stamps lines here.  I have the Waltzing Mouse Holiday Labels, the dress form is Unity that I bought at Archivers last year...and the sentiment is from PTI.  I dressed up the dress form a little.  Some Le Creme Baby Pearls from Want 2 Scrap and satin ribbon for the sash.
Look at this beautiful inspiration photo.  Doesn't it just make you want to run and create?  I love the soft colors and bright light in the picture. 

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

Just stunning, Heather! Love how you framed the lovely dress form here! I am with you on using stamps more than once.. I am trying to do the same thing! I hope you are well stocked in case you do get snowed in..

Heather, this is just so STUNNING! LOVE the added detail of that sash! Your ribbon and bow and lace are all so FAB! LOVE the vertical label behind the dress form. It mimics the outline of the dress form! VERY CLEVER!

Heather it's gorgeous....a real eye catcher. So true what you say about not using older stamps enough...I think many of us are guilty of that and it's just crazy...especially in these hard economic times.

Hi Heather! Your bows are so pretty. I think you need to give me a tutorial on that. I can do many things but tie a pretty bow is not one of them!

I hope your new year is starting out well.

Meredith said...

Heather, I just love this - it's beautiful!! I totally get what you're saying - I think it's so easy to get caught up during release time, and forget that you already have so many stamps that would do the same trick as what you're itching to buy! ..and I love your new blog look - the damask is soooo pretty :)
