A Hug Without A Kiss...

....and so goes the sentiment on the new stamp I just got this week from Unity.  It was a prize in a package from Sav O'Gwynn.  It's always fun to get new goodies, isn't it?

The designer paper is also from that pack of goodies.  I punched my new "Quilted" border along the sides and mounted it on a textured Wild Wasabi card base.  The Bermuda Bay scalloped oval nestie matches a stripe in that paper, too.  I sponged Orchid Opulence ink around the sentiment while the oval die was still intact, punched a Horizontal Slot through both layers of ovals on the left-hand side, and threaded through a velvet ribbon that might be Bermuda Bay.  It is from SU and is retired, but I'm not sure if I've got the color right.  I dug into my stash of Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware to find a buckle slide to add some style.  Little purple rhinestones accent the flowers.

Hope I have time to stamp again soon.  I have a busy work weekend ahead of me, and may not have play time.  :( 

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
