You're Special


There are so many really fun, creative takes on the inspiration photo challenge at the Paper Smooches Sparks blog.  My brain was not in a wildly creative mode today though so I went with a pretty literal interpretation of the photo.  It seemed wrong to pass up the perfect opportunity to finally ink up one of my Vegtastic stamps.  Simple but I like it.  :)
And guess what arrived today?  Nope, not my embossing powder.  That, according to the tracking number, is somewhere in New Jersey.  However, my Market Street Stamps and Twinery orders arrived today!  Whoop whoop!! I even used one of my MSS stamps immediately although you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see it).  This is a very rare occurrence.  Usually I admire them and fret over what to do with them for a few months before I actually ink them up.  :)    
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill Basics, (Red, green) Craft supply

Patterned Paper:  (Little Boy Collection) Echo Park
Stamps:  (Tomatoes from Vegtastic & sentiment from Sentiment Sampler) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Wild Wasabi) Stampin' Up

Other: ( Lime Green Stickles) Ranger

Super cute take on the inspiration! And great way to highlight the Vegtastic!

Oh, that's what I do usually, too! I have to own a stamp (or anything else) for awhile before I use it.
This card is brilliant! I love the green polka-dot tomato -- must be a really special heirloom variety -- in among the red ones.

Hee hee...that's what I often do with stamps, too. Yeah for the speedy companies! Your card is so adorable--I love how it turned out! The green polka dot is cute (that or has a blight). You've definitely come out of your low mojo from a few weeks ago. Oh, and I like the chocolate-colored lightbox papers you're using. :)

Hey I love this green tomato, he's certainly special :)
I have real trouble with these picture inspiration photos too, I think too literally for them!
Glad your stash is arriving and can't wait to see your product showcase ;)
