A Better Place

It is time for Paper Makeup Stamps May Release Day and we are celebrating with a Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Shaela's fabulous blog.  If not, you need to start at the PMS Blog and collect the letters along the way.  That will get you the code for 15% off the new release stamps in the PMS Store, which will go live at 9pm EDT. 


My card features the new Background Scenery stamp.  It's a decent size {3.5" square} and I love how easy it would be to split the scene and just use the fence or the mountain view.  I chose to use the full image on glossy paper and brayer over it with the Kaleidacolor Melon Melody ink pad. The sentiment is a previously released one that you can find here.  I just thought it matched the outdoor view so well.  {grin}

Before you go, make a note to join us tonight for the Release Party in the PMS Forum at 9pm EDT!  And if you haven't done so yet, leave a comment on all the Sneak Peek Posts on the PMS Blog for your chance to win the ENTIRE release!  The winner will be announced at the party tonight!

Now it's time to collect your letter from my mountain scene and hop on over to Dawn's sprouting blog!  I'm sure there's some gardening going on that you're really going to dig!
