Cute Anna Mae

My apologies for the general lack of new things to look at on here. My other half brought back a lovely gift for me from the UK...a hideous cold. Two weeks of feeling BLERGGGHhhhhhh and now I'm on antibiotics for a sinus infection and eye drops for conjunctivitus. Did I mention how sorry for myself I've been feeling? This, and it's Summer...NOT FAIR!

Anyway, I just thought I'd show you a little birthday card I made recently. I have used a brand new stamp set that I got from Our Craft Lounge (PS. I have just discovered that you can also buy these locally HERE). I've never used clear stamps before, being a huge fan of Stampin' Up!'s lovely red rubber, but I thought I should at least try the competition and see how they went (...I like them, and there is definately a place for them in my stash ;-):

Materials Used (all from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):

Cardstock: Soft Sky, Regal Rose, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink
Stamps: Anna Mae stamp set - by Our Craft Lounge, Think Happy Thoughts stamp set, Short Order Numbers stamp set and Linen background stamp
Designer Series Patterned Paper: Spring Fling
Ribbon: Flirty Ribbon Originals
Accessories: Metal Edged Tags, Pretty in Pink Eyelets, Watercolour Paper, Black Stazon Ink, Classic Ink (Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Soft Sky, Creamy Caramel, Pumpkin Pie and Blush Blossom), Aquapainter, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds, crop-a-dile, 1 1/4 inch circle punch and 3/4 inch circle punch
Adhesives: SNAIL, Two-Way Glue Pen, Sticky Strip and Dimensionals.

Here is a little close up so you can see the Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds:

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the little girl card - been on their site, but can you tell me how much you paid for postage? Looks like it is from USA?
