CUC DT Pixie Cottage card

Hi Everyone! I hope it's nice & cool where you are today. Here in southern California we're roasting cuz.....summer has finally arrived......ugh. LOL Can you tell I hate the heat? LOL

We at Craft Us Crazy are in the middle of our 15th Challenge! Wow........this year is sure flying by. Our theme is everyone's FAVorite..........."Anything Goes" for the whole month of August. Easy Peasy! Our sponsor for this half of the challenge is The Pixie Cottage. They so generously gave me this rubber stamp called "Stealing Hearts" by Eileen Gutierrez. Isn't she a cutie holding all those hearts in her sweet little pink dress. She's colored with my Copics (numbers listed below).

My DP & sentiment are from My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found" Blush collection. I love it! I won a gift certificate from the Pumpkin Spice blog hop recently & just couldn't wait to pick out all of these pretty papers. I couldn't believe how fast they shipped it to me. And their prices are FABulous! I always love to pass on a good bargain to my blogging friends. In these times we really need to stretch our dollars so we can buy more craft supplies. LOL (cuz you know a girl can NEVER have too many....LOL)
