The Mustache

Here's a wonderful rubber stamp from one of Sweet Pea's newest artists The East Wind.  This great image is called Lucy Loo Mustache.  I am totally in love with the Lucy Loo stamps!  Even though she does look very serious here, I did this card in a playful them by added the sentiment "Laugh with me."  I do think it's even funnier that a lady with such a serious face would hold up a mustache and give you that look.
 
I wanted to keep this card simple so I used some specialty papers, lovely lace and some shimmery embellishment bling called Candi.  They come is gorgeous color combos.
 
Here's a close up of the Lucy Loo image.

 
Check out all the East Wind images available in rubber stamps only at the Sweet Pea store.  We also have a wonderful group on Facebook that you can share your creations and participate in regular contests to win prizes, it's called Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans
 
I am so excited to have prizes from Sweet Pea stamps! 
 
So what's your favorite holiday to craft for?  I guess I don't really have to say it if you have seen my blog for any length of time, you probably know which holiday gets about 2 months of the year. Yes, for me, it's Halloween.  After that probably making fun sexy cards for the hubby so, not necessarily valentines, but just love theme in general.

    I don't really have a favorite holiday that I create for. I do some of every holiday really. I do have some favorite themes though. I like to do things with with owls, butterflies, bees, birds and flowers. I'm a shabby chic girl at heart. :)

  22. What a mysterious lady she is. Love the eyes and mustache. My favorite holiday is Grandparent's Day and I also enjoy Easter too.

  23. I love the paper and image....matches perfect. I really don't have a favorite holiday but since you mentioned it, I'd have to say maybe Christmas. Although we spend it with family I still like table center pieces, maybe a wreath on the door and can get as simple or as crazy as I want. I guess anyone can do this any holiday but the Christmas season is longer so I get to enjoy some of the work longer than if I just did it for a birthday or Valentine's Day. Yeah, I'd have to say Christmas.
