Peppermint Love

♥ Happy Tuesday ♥
It's been a busy, busy past few days...blog hops, getting acquainted over at The Nook, completing a few Design Team projects, several items made for Dot & Whimsy...and phew, I'm whipped...but lovin' it!
I got my Fall/Halloween goodies out this past week.  One of DH's friends brought me three bundles of corn stalks a couple of months ago...just need to get a scarecrow, some colorful mums and a few pumpkins and I'll be set to decorate the front porch and back patio.  Thank you, God for FALL ♥
Okay, so I'm diverting a bit from my raves of Fall.  As promised yesterday, I have a couple of next things to show you;  all from the Peppermint collection by Crate Paper.  What a load of retro and nostalgic F-U-N.
You can pick up your own Peppermint loot from Your Scrapbook Stash;  Erica always has the best deals and coupon codes for any of your purchases.
Here we go...first up is a card that I created for the Gallery at YSS
Every single thing was from the Peppermint Collection except for the crochet trim, felt snowflake and baker's twine.  I alternated chipboard snowflake rounds with a couple of the domed Sew Brads.  Santa's 'buttons' were cut from the pom pom trim.
This little album is chocked full of goodies...I even staggered the pages to create even more interest. Isn't the snowman the sweetest? I ♥ his smile!
I also scrapbooked a double-page layout from Peppermint, but I'll have to wait and share it once it's been pubbed on YSS Blog :)

I Heart {Ippity}
I got my newest stamps from I Heart {Ippity} this last week...yay!  Always wanting to set out to do something 'different', I came up with this card, which folds from the top. The flower and "faith" stamps are from the Faith Blooms set by Ippity (Unity Stamp Co.)
I like that it's simple and I like that it's shabby...enough said *wink*

I'll be back in a few!
Take care
