Ok so on to my projects for today!! My hubby has been feeling under the weather the last couple of weeks it seems like he may have a sinus infection (again), a  year ago he had to have surgery because he had a severe sinus infection, which is scary. Now that he is feeling some of the same symptoms I can see he is worried and scared, but of course being him he tries to act like he is fine ( men lol) I wanted to make a card to cheer him up! Here it is..
He loves Nightmare before Christmas(thats me and him lol) I know he will love the card, isnt' the sentiment cute hehe it sounds like something those two would say to each other!! The adorable stamps are Jack and Sally Chibis from Simply Betty Stamps!

Now on to my Twihard projects lol, First I want to say that this stamp set was created for my Ashley, she is the worlds biggest twihard (sorry Carley lol) and she sweetly asked me to create this set, then she cried, then begged and finally jumped up and down and said please please haha! She is so in love with this set and says she plans on making some goodies for her friends with it! I felt so horrible because I didn't get to take her to the premier at midnight so I put this card and necklace in her backpack with a little note that says (be ready I am checking you out at noon and we are watching Breaking Dawn!!) I am sure she screamed when she read it cause she text me telling me she loves me lol!
Here is the inside
and here is the necklace I made her to wear today
This is a better pic of the second dog tag, everything was made with my new Fanpire set EXCEPT the I heart sentiment that came from my "Text Talk" set. I love mixing and matching sets to make new sentiments it keeps things fresh and fun!!
I hope you all like my new release I am really excited about it! The sets will be for  pre order (there was a slight delay with the stamp company so they will not be ready til friday of next week), I will have them up on my shop later on this afternoon.

Dont forget to comment here and on my DT's blogs for your chance to win the entire release! I will announce the winner on Sunday so that gives you two days to get your hop on!! Have a great weekend!
