Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge: Penned

So for this Getting Cricky challenge I tried out some brand new pens I got.  They are soooooooooooo cool!  You put them in your Cricut!  You may have seen my sympathy card earlier this week done with the pens. The pens are from Amy Chomas- hop over there and tell her I sent you! They work wonderfully when put alongside the things I am already using- for example, my K Andrew stamps. Visit Kristal and tell her what stamps you love- make sure to tell her I sent you!

Done with Amy Chomas pens

K Andrew "Positive Thoughts" stamps

My BIL just got a job as a Forest Technician.  This is something he has wanted for a long time and we are all very happy for him that he is about to do what he has wanted for so long.  So the stamp "Live the Life You Want" by K Andrew from Positive Thoughts was PERFECT for this!  Don't you love it when you have the perfect sentiment for what you are saying?!

I couldn't resist this paper stack from DCWV, it is "The Green Stack" and made with recycled paper.  If you know me in "real life" you know I am far from green.  The environment is not on my radar... I realize this is not a good thing and I am working on it but if everything about being green was as fun as this paper it would be so much more fun!

Have you checked out my 300 follower give away I am hoping to do in August?
