Apron of Love

Hello & Happy Monday!

Up and at it early this morning because it is a my cleaning day.
Not a fun day by all means but someone's gotta do it! 

You know the saying....
"Everyday may not be good but there is something good in everyday!"

And today the sun is shining and that my friends is a wonderful thing!

Oh and I also have a pretty sunshine-y card to share with you!

I have a funny story to tell you about this set. 
I purchased this bundle back in January when it became available as I was thinking it would make a great set for Father's Day with the apron and grilling utensils in it. Once my orders arrive I usually unpack them....mount the stickers on the stamps and put them away by seasons, sentiments, birthdays, flowers, masculine etc...

So once April came I went searching for this set to play with and get some idea's for making Father's day cards....I could not find the set...NO WHERE! I searched my craft room for days, looked under cabinets, searched thru boxes even tore apart my storage room. NODDA! I eventually ended up ordering another stamp set since I already had the matching framelits.  It would be a waste to have the framelits without the stamp set, right? To this day I still have not found my original stamp set. I think it may have fallen in the trash can beside my stamp table and got thrown out. 
I was sick about it but what can you do. 

So, it's a new day and a new stamp set that I finally was able to ink up last week and what a cute card to boot!

Card Details:

Stamps: Apron of Love
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black Archival, Lemon Lime Twist
Cardstock:  Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Silver Foil Paper, Tutti Fruitti DSP
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Circle Layering Framelits, Apron Builder Framelits, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

So, it may not be a funny story afterall but I have never lost a stamp set in all my years of crafting! I'm not sure we will ever know what happened to it.
I would say that having to buy a 2nd set sure was worth every cent because I really like this bright & summer-y card! Hope you do too!

My thoughts today.....

 Wouldn't that be a dream come true! Haha!
Hope that gives you something to giggle about! 

I'm off to get my day started.
Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!

I think I've either lost, misplaced or erroneously given away stamp sets because I recall a few of mine going missing through the years LOL Glad you were able to get the new set to go with the dies because it does make really cute cards! I love all the fruits and colorful designs in the papers! Sign me up for that miracle medication if you ever find it :) Enjoy this gorgeous day!

With all the fuss, I am glad you are loving the card as much as we are. Yes, I know that sinking feeling, when you know it was right there and then poof. I totally lost my stitched Oval dies and have yet to find them. I use them so much I just had to order a new set. It's okay, we all do it. Just makes us dang mad. Glad I came home to such a pretty card that you shared. It is awesome.
