Art Impressions and Michael's blog hop!!

Hello Ai fans!

Today is one of the most exciting days in my Ai career!  Art Impressions has teamed with Michael's Craft Stores to sell their wonderful stamps.  Right now there are 5 wonderful clear stamps sets.
We're celebrating with a big blog hop over at Art Impressions Challenges.


Without further adieu... here are the new sets...

SC0652 Ai Crazy Cat Lady
SC0653 Ai Beach Babes
SC0651 Ai His & Hers Campers
SC0650 Ai His & Hers Gardeners
SC6049 Ai His & Hers Flying High

For my card I used the new Garden Set.


I created a little scene, making the outside of a house for this adorable gardener.
The woman, the flower pots, the verse and the hose are all from the new set.

Here's the inside with a couple more images and verses from the set.


I can't wait to use the rest of these sets!!  They're so fun and versatile.


Here's our blog hop roll call...
