Pretty Pink Posh and SSS STAMPtember Collaboration Set

Good evening! I posted this card last night using the adorable new STAMPtember collaboration between Pretty Pink Posh and Simon Says Stamp - SOOO crazy cute! You can find it HERE if you're interested - and promised to fill the post in better this morning.

Some crazy events in the last couple days sort of set me off balance and I lost track of the days. The past couple days we thought we were preparing to say farewell to my Grandma who is 102 - and whie she has definitely lived a very long, full, and wonderful life, it is never easy to say goodbye to someone. I stopped by to see her a couple days ago, and she never woke up - I was able to sit with her a bit, give her a kiss, and say goodbye. I didn't expect her to even wake up again. However - yesterday I heard she was awake and wanting to be put in her wheelchair! She is one plucky lady I'll tell you that! But we'll gladly keep her around as long as possible!

Then, last night there was a tragic shooting at our local mall - about 15 minutes from our house. The entire community we live in is still reeling from the news. Currently 5 people have been confirmed dead, and they still have not caught the shooter. Prayers for all those affected are greatly appreciated I know. It still kind of doesn't even feel real yet...and so incredibly sad!

That is just a small slice of this weeks emotional roller coaster! Now on to some more info on this card!

This set is part of the month long STAMPtember celebration at Simon Says Stamp:

Here is a peek at the super adorable set with it's matching dies - you can find it HERE:

I created a shaker card with some plaid pattern paper and Pretty Pink Posh's Storybook 5 Die and filled with Iridescent Mini Circle Confetti.

I matched the color of my birdie to my pattern papers - I love doing that so my stamped image coordinates perfectly. I used to color my images, then try to find matching paper - this way is SOOO much easier!
