For the Love of Grids


Is this bright enough for you? *grin*

I am so tired of the cold, dreary, gloomy days of this deep, dark winter. I needed something to brighten things up! Cue this fun new set from Practicing Creativity Designs, called For the Love of Grids.

It has three different grid-like background stamps and one tiny dot. I used all three grid stamps on this card. The hatch pattern is so good for adding texture, the diamond patten is under the hot air balloon, and the classic grid (just like graph paper!) is along the bottom of the card.

I didn't have anything like this in my stamp collection so I have been having so much fun playing with it! And grids are so trendy and hip right now! Paired with Look Up Additions this card just makes me happy! *wink*

Go see what Courtney, Karen, and Valerie have to show you too...I'm so lucky to be working with such talented stampers. *sigh*
For the Love of Grids will be released at midnight tonight at PCD. It retails for just $13.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a tremendous Thursday!
