It's Not All Black and White

Free Stamping Time!

I'm leaving in a few days for my Cabo mini vacation. You know what that means, don't you? Yep, I'm sick! Icky sore throat, cough, blechk! I'm so hoping this is gone before I have to get on the plane Sunday morning.
Enough complaining. On to the card. This uses the MFT Be Calm stamp and today's sketch challenge from Splitcoast. I feel so decadent. Stamping just for the fun of it. Not a design assignment. I'm a pretty slow stamper, so I don't do much beyond my assignments. So I was really tickled to find time and inspiration for this adorable stamp I bought when it first came out a while ago. I love my design teams, but today I got to feel like a kid playing hooky from school. *giggle*Stamps- Be Calm (MFT Presents Annie LaPoint)
Paper- white (PTI); pumpkin pie, chocolate chip, creamy caramel, Haiku DSP (SU!)
Ink- noir (Palette)
Accessories- copics, primas, buttons, star dust stickles, nesties, brads (lasting impressions), dimensionals, thread
