You're the Key!

ETA: I completely spaced and didn't tell you all the BIG news in the Kitchen today . . . we've added 3 fabulous stampers to the KSS Crew:

Connie McCotter at McStamipin Dusk 'til Dawn

Makiko Jones at Makink Studio

Lisa Somerville at Splendiferous Creations

You need to go check them out - it's always wonderful to add fresh talent and they sure are talented!! Welcome ladies! :) On a sad note, this is the last KSS Monday for Nicole as she will be a very busy lady getting her PhD! Best wishes Nicole - dont be a stranger!

Happy Monday - Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday to be specific! We had such a gorgeous, warm, sunny weekend here in Maine - beautiful!

I just got a brand-new-to-me KSS set, 3 Step Adornments and had to sit down and give it a try yesterday. What a fun set! These images are a little vintage-y and so beautiful! I found a tutorial for a 3x3 Notecard Box on SCS and thought it would pair nicely with this set. The patterned papers are all from Webster's Pages. This is a shot of the box from the top - as you can see I used the small lock image popping it up a bit so that I could tie a ribbon through it. The sentiment is pieced from Ready 4 Any Holiday and Mix It Up - Monograms & Alphabets.

The cards inside the box were quick and easy but with the pretty images in the 3 Step Adornment set they finish off the set nicely!

This set would make such a nice little gift for someone or save it and give the cards to your spouse - tuck them in his lunch for a nice surprise - although my dh doesn't even take a lunch so there goes that! :)

Please be sure to visit the other Kitchen Sink Stamps Crew members - I'm sure you'll get lots of inspiration today! :)
