Lovely New Goodies

I am having so much fun playing with all of the new goodies I received for Christmas from my dear family. Even my project manager, who is also a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, sent me a huge box packed with wonderful crafty goodness. This first card is a thank you for her. Isn't this image adorable? It's from Crafty Secrets' new Couple of Cuties set. This set is full of absolutely darling images, and I thought this one was perfect for my project manager. Everyone in our company works from home, so my PM and I talk on the phone...a lot!

Stamps: Crafty Secrets - Couple of Cuties set
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
Patterned Paper: K&Company - Carolyn Gavin (floral); Stampin' Up! (striped)
Cardstock - Stampin' Up! - Chocolate Chip; Neenah Paper - Natural; K&Company (red)

Our closest Michaels store is moving to another location in town, and last weekend (lucky me!)they were having an in-store only clearance, and (even luckier me!) there was also a 20% coupon off your entire purchase, and (luckiest of all!) I had two M's gift cards in my hot little paws. I went a little crazy on paper (I bought five stacks!), Martha Stewart glitter, and various other items, including some birthday pressies for my mum. Her birthday is tomorrow, and (perfect timing) Darlene is hosting a birthday card challenge for this week's Crafty Secrets challenge on Splitcoast. Here's the card I made for my mum:
