This challenge gave me an opportunity to use "Damask Clover" and "All Year Long". One of my TAC friends had created a green/black card last year and I loved it! I never forgot the how wonderful they looked together so when I seen this DP I grabbed it. I trimmed it down to 4 x 5.5" and set it aside. So when I seen this challenge I knew immediately what I was going to use! I LOVE Impression Obsession.
My favorite artist over there are Alesa Baker and Montagerie. And then there is a fabulously unique Leigh Hannon. I can walk into a stamp store and without even checking the label, many times identify her stamps! Who else would combine a garden in a cake, seashells in a christmas tree, or florals in a rooster! Her images are fun and whimsical. The Damask Clover is by Leigh as well.
If you have Impression Obsession Stamps then hop on over to the IO Blog and check out todays DT Blog Hop and all the details for the challenge. Mitra, the owner, generously offers up a $25 gift certificate to their online store twice monthly! I don't know about you, but I LIKE winnig free stuff.

I'm off to work on tomorrow's blog post. Will I ever get ahead?? Probably not, teehee.
