Good Things Happening - Sweet Spotlight

It's Tuesday morning and here at the sweet shop - it's kind-of a big day. (More on a personal note) - Jacob, Mr. Sweet, is taking his final CPA test this morning. Loredana (Sister-in-Law Sweet) is being sworn in as a US citizen this morning. And, finally we have a sweet friend who is having surgery this morning to remove a cancerous tumor. So, hopefully - the rule, good things happen in three, applies today!

Having Amy Tsuruta on the blog today is our BONUS!!

Let me introduce you to Amy, although - I'm sure you know her! (she's so amazing!)

Hi!  My name is Amy of Tsuruta Designs and I'm thrilled to be a Sweet Stamp Shop Guestie!  I live in the gorgeous state of Washington and have 2 beautiful kids.  I'm engaged to thee greatest guy ever that makes me laugh and fully supports my paper crafting.

Amy worked with two of our new stamp sets -

 Amy - really did such a great job taking these stamps and making them all her own!

I love how she used the let's chat stamp 3x - with the rotary dial! The design is perfect - actually, perfectly pink! 

Isn't this little gift box so darn sweet - especially with the chevron stamp in the background. I think it really adds the perfect texture. 

 Look how she embossed the dial - it's so bright and at the same time, a really great masculine card. - General sets like this are always great for either gender, dontcha think?

Check out this last card (we showed off on the release) but, I love the distressed chevron on this card - it almost looks like a rub-on doesn't it? Great texture. I really like how it's implying texture - like embossing. But, way easier because it's a stamp!! 

Big hugs to Amy - take a moment to visit her blog and say hello! HERE 

We'll be back here tomorrow with two more lovely designers - altered art, here we come! 

Happy Tuesday and pray that our good news is coming in 'threes' today!
