Surprising Stamp Sets

A couple of weeks ago I got an AMAZING surprise in the mail. It was an order from Stampin' Up! and I had no idea what it could be. I thought maybe it was one of my backordered items or something. I opened up the envelope and there was two sets in it. I pulled out the shipping slip to see where it came from and saw the name of another demonstrator friend of mine. I was so excited and shocked. What a very generous thing for her to do. Not really sure why she did, but I'm so very thankful for the sets. More importantly, I'm thankful for our friendship. Krista, thank you so much. I'm so blessed to have you as a friend.

I ended up using one of the sets to create this for my Stamp-A-Stack out in Pacific. I love creating with black and white and tend to throw a little red in there at times. Not sure if you can tell, but the vines from the set are stamped in VersaMark down the lefthand side of the card. I think I need to reink that pad.

Stamp Sets-Fresh Cuts
Paper-Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink-Basic Black, Real Red, VersaMark
Accessories-Large Oval Punch, 5-Petal Punch, half pearl from Pretties Kit, Snips
