Eye Spy Feature over Basic Grey

 Just sharing a special feature from Basic Grey called Eye Spy. And guess what!? My little paper-piecing card from Lawnscaping challenge card (see here ) is selected to be featured today! Please go
here and check it out! I would really appreciate that you leave me a comment there!

A BIG thank-you to Lawn Fawn Stamps WCMD giveaway, this was the prize... and that's how I made the cards with Ornate ornaments. Isn't Kelly Marie sweet? I love her wrapping...they even match with the LF packaging! 
Here are the fall scenes in my backyard...
and two happy kids.

When I told the kids when I found out about this Eye Spy feature, they were "super excited"....and responded dryly: "Ooohhhh... how....ex--ci--ting...."  as they had their eyes fixated on the TV show "Modern Family"! Then one of them said:" Go brag to your stamping friends, they would understand! hahhaha..." (both of them laughed their heads off).  That's the kind of support I get from my kids (LOL)!!So yeah....I am bragging sharing the excitement here.


Enjoy your day!  
**edited note:  here is the shout out from Lawn Fawn....I.am.speechless.
I am so thankful for this hobby!
