Welcome back to Day 4 of
September Sneak Peek Week!
I hope you've been enjoying the party so far!
Today we sneak a stamp set that is special to me.
Please allow me to to indulge in a little story of how this set came to be...
Last year, I was working...unsuccessfully... on a stamp set that I really wanted to do.
It was one of those times when what I had in my head just wasn't coming to life how I wanted it to.
I was frustrated!
Then...Girl Friday Kelly created a fabulous project that just about broke my jaw.
It completely inspired me!!!
The light bulb went off, my hand smacked my forehead, there was a rainbow, fireworks, an eclipse and I'm pretty sure glitter fell from the sky too...ok, just work with me here *wink*
In any event,
the missing link was found, and I was back on track.
Once the inspiration was well directed, I settled into design mode.
It was all coming together but something...I didn't know exactly what...was missing.
On a fishing trip with my guys this summer, surrounded by gorgeous pine trees, I was feeling happy and relaxed, so I let my mind go.
It wandered, it explored, it went blank...and then it focused.
That's when I wrote the poem that finished this set.
It was nearly a year in the making, but I'm so thrilled to introduce...
A lovely set of pinecones and sprigs for your creative delight.
Use the original poem as a focal point or background, and finish off your design with a pretty sentiment.
It's a really pretty set, but just wait til you see what it does!
So what do you think of Pinecones?
It will be available on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps website,
