BCG Wk 44 - Owl Together Now






Isn't this little Owl the cutest! - What's even better is this is a brand new set in the upcoming 2008-2009 SU Catalog. So how did I get it you might ask...Well it's quite a story. Patty Bennett was sharing some photo's of the Bermuda Cruise she was lucky enough to go on and how this set was one of the sets that was used for the "make'n'take" projects on the cruise. I made a comment on her blog about how if she absolutely hated the set she could send it my way.


Well before long she was emailing me saying she actually didn't really care much for the set and if I would send her my address she would send it to me. I can't tell you how excited I was and of course I sent her my mailing address zippy quick. We made a quick "trade" of sorts and in a few days I had this cute little set in my hot little hands. Today is the first day I've had a chance to play with it. - Thank You again Patty for sending me this super neat stamp set.

Our challenge this week was a color challenge using: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue and So Saffron. I really liked these colors when I paired them up and decided they would go well with my new stamp set.
