New Rubber!

On Saturday, hubby and I went to the opening of a new flea market here in town. I found these magnetic photo frame storage tins
there. The lid is actually a 3" diameter frame. I wish I would have bought them all! I may need to go back on Thursday! THEN, when we got home DD handed me my envelope from Rubber Stamping Fun! What did I do? I used both of my goodies right away.
I contacted Rubber Stamping Fun back in April when I learned they were looking for people to "review" their stamps. I threw my name in the hat and they contacted me in early May to let me know I had been chosen. I have been patiently awaiting the stamp set I was able to CHOOSE myself. THAT was a hard decision to make and I chose a set that would not be my normal choice, but that I could easily envision cards and projects with. PLUS, I loved the sentiments and I am crazy about friendship sayings. This one fills the bill with 3 sayings- "Friends and flowers are a little bit of heaven on earth."; "Friends are the flowers of life." and "Thanks for being such a true friend." I'll be using this set often with those sayings and the 2 flowers included are so pretty too. This set doesn't even have a name that I know of. I love it.
Details, details: I used a slightly smaller than 3" circle of Naturals Ivory CS and took SU Real Red and Garden Green markers directly to the rubber to ink the stamp. I stamped over that with Basic Black for the sentiment. Easy as pie. The DP on the side came from a pack opened long ago so I have no idea who made it. The ribbon on the side is attached with Terrifically Tacky Tape (the red tape) and is made by RibbonFX (HL)
Thanks for stopping by! See ya later!!
