chirp up (& the stamp show)

it's now mid-may and i still hadn't used my sell-a-bration sets (except the "big blossom" stamp on my scrapbook pages). i still feel so refreshed and inspired from yesterday ---different story: yesterday (saturday 5/19) i got to go to the heirloom stamp show in puyallup. this is my third show and my tastes have rubbed off on others. we left early enough to make sure we had time to stop by krispy kreme to get our nutritious breakfast, and we each got a dozen to take to the DH. not as many make-N-takes as the show at the tacoma dome, smaller space too. my biggest disappointment was that darcies wasn't there. i browsed that site a few weeks ago during a 25% off sale and decided to wait to purchase the sets i wanted at the show. then no darcies. little more disappointed than i think i should have been. VERY impressed with the stampcapes booth. there was a constant crowd around it so we were unable to make anything there. judikins, stamps by judith, auntie amy were all there too. we had a great time, got to see some new products, got some deals on older products, and came home feeling refreshed and inspired! i can't wait till the tacoma dome show!
--anyways, i got the inspiration to do something with my "very punny" set from sell-a-bration that i've had sitting since january...collecting dust...doing nothing but taking up space and making me feel oh so uncreative. so i did a simple little cheer-you-up card for a friend. the background is TAC stamps (just love those whirly-twirlies!). i used my sakura sparkle gelly roll pen to add some sparkle to the background. card base is pretty in pink, stamped image on whisper white and colored with color pencils, mounted image on ppink and certainly celery. found the ribbon in my ribbon drawer (isn't that awful! i have no idea what kind or where i got it... i can't even tell if it's blue, pink, or white! i think that's grounds for the DH to get me better light in here!). simple, cute, will hopefully do the job.
