You're scent-sational!

Over the past few weeks,my husband has been away on a 5 wk long course.  Having 2 children under the age of 5 and another due to come in less than 6 weeks has been stressful.  So image my surprise when I get this beautiful message the other day to "treat" myself!  What else would an avid card maker/scrapbooker get for herself....
Well I took FULL advantage of a sale that Peachy Keen Stamps had a few weeks ago and ordered more Action Wobbles and MY 1ST Peachy Keen Stamp Set.  I also ordered 3 My Pink Stamper sets called Winter Punnies, Even More Punny-licious, & More Punny-licious.
Finally, I have had a chance to use all of my new "treats" and absolutely love all of them.  I am now addicted to Action Wobbles, & Peachy Keen Stamps and will order more cute little stamp sets from Mary @ Cardz TV and some others of course.  All we really have where I live is Michaels, and a private scrapbooking store....so limited supplies.
So here's my new card using my new Peachy Keen Stamp set called Critter Faces and also My Pink Stamper Even More Punny-licious stamp set.
This card is for my hubby who returns on Friday. If this little skunk doesn't melt your heart or make you giggle, I don't know what will....
