I have always heard that good things come to those who wait.
I am very good at creating my wishlist and slowly and carefully choosing what I pick off the list each time.
I DIDN'T WANT TO BE GOOD.
I DIDN'T WANT TO WAIT.
But I had to, because the stamps I wanted sold out overnight when they were released (overnight for me, in a few hours during the day in the USA). I'm talking about the "new" Altenew stamps. They aren't quite as new now. But they are brand new for me, because the very first day they were restocked, I jumped online and ordered... and today is the day that they arrived in my mailbox... right in time for the long week-end! Yippee!!!
In an even bigger case of delayed gratification, I only bought two sets. I wanted them all. My budget wouldn't allow me to buy them all at once. You should have seen me agonising over which sets would make the cut, lol!
The cards I'm bringing you now are made using Hennah Elements. Oh my goodness. I don't know that I have been so excited about a stamp set for quite a while. This is superb! The first two cards I made, which I'm bringing you now, I decided to go with the henna tattoo theme. My cards are skin-coloured (PTI Fine Linen) with black patterns.
Hennah Elements is such a versatile set. I think the patterns you can create must be limitless.NBUS challenge. Well my brand new stamps mean I qualify for this challenge, so I'm joining in. I'm joining in mostly because Darnell is one of the sweetest and funniest ladies out there in blogland. I have been blessed to get to know her and to receive some of her cards in the mail... which reminds me, I should send her a card to let her know I have not forgotten her. ;-) Congratulations, Darnell!
Thank you for visiting, and putting up with my gushing!
