I know I already posted once today, but the man in brown paid me a visit this afternoon and I could NOT WAIT to tear in to my box of stamping goodness!!! 
I absolutely fell in love with the Perfectly Preserved stamp set when saw it in the Holiday Catalog and I just had to put together a card as soon as I pulled this set out of the box.  And with the new bundles available, I was even more excited!!!  There are many new stamp sets bundled with coordinating Framelits....AWESOME!  I may or may not have purchased a few of'll just have to wait and see :) 
I can see many fun cards and projects to be made this fall using this set as well as the coordinating DSP and fabric...I'm so excited!!  But for now, I'll start with this...
Suppiles Used:
Paper ~ Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Orchard Harvest DSP, Very Vanilla
Ink ~ Raspberry Ripple, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker
Stamp Set ~ Perfectly Preserved
Other Supplies ~ Cannery Set Framelits, Labels Collections Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits

I'm itching to play with all of the other fun new things I got from my holiday pre-order, but I MUST finish up my projects for Stamp Club this week AND finish my son's 1st birthday invites! 

Holiday Catalogs are now available and you may order beginning August 1st.  Contact me today if you haven't already received your catalog!

**Looks like I had a little ESP going on last night when I created this!  This weeks HSS Theme Challenge is FRUITY!  Perfect for this cute card.  It looks like some of the great design team members love this set just as much as I do...great {crafting} minds, right?  :)
