Smells and a Doodle Dude

Good morning!! Today is going to be another beautiful day! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to mow the grass yesterday {insert pouty face} due to a dead battery from sitting over winter. I juiced it up though so I should be good to go today. When I mentioned the smell of fresh cut grass yesterday I got a few similar responses. So, since we were talking about smells we like, I thought I'd mention a few more that woo me!

1. Stazon black ink pads. I don't know if all of the colors smell that way, but I love it!
2. The rubber matt that you can buy to emboss the Nestabilities. It has such a strong smell but I even find myself picking it up just to smell it!
3. Lilacs! Need I say more?! My favorite flower in the world! Too bad they don't last too long off the bush!
4. Coffee grounds. I'm not too much of a coffee drinker but when Joe and I were first together I bought a can of coffee just to smell it every few days. I guess it reminded me of home.

Well, I guess that's it for me for the smells. And since I made a goof of myself, please don't hesitate to do the same!

Here is a card I made last night when everyone was asleep! It just came to me. All of the colors and layout and everything. It came together surprisingly smooth!

  • STAMPS- Twinx (Doodle Factory via Starving Artistamps), Thank you (SSS Thanks via Starving Artistamps)
  • PAPER- Basic Grey 'Gypsy', green CS
  • INK- Brilliance black
  • OTHER- Copic Markers, Nestabilities, Word Window punch, Slit punch, Stamping Bella Baubles, push pin (for paper piercing), pop dots

I am getting ready to put in my batch order for Starving Artistamps and it is killing me to have to decide on which Doodle Factory to get! I don't have Urban, Country, or Fairytale! I have to get a little of each I guess!

Oh, by the way, Susan L was the winner of the Fairytale blog candy from Tracey! Congrats! But, if you didn't win, she is offering up a 20% discount on anything Doodle Factory in the store until April 27th on her blog!!!!! So, if you can't live without this set, here is your chance to get a discount! All you have to do is put iloveDF in the discount code box and then hit recalculate. Viola!

Oh, don't forget to sign up for my blog candy if you're Canadian!!! It ends tomorrow!

Hope all of you have a super fantastical day!!! Thanks for stopping by!

I am officially a stalker of your blog. It's so nice to see something new all the time.
I love the smell of coffee too.
The strawberry shortcake doll, my DH's deoderant(reminds me of dating him), and this one is really gross, but cow manure, it reminds me of home.

This color scheme makes me think of mojitos - my favorite summertime refreshment!

Gardenia and honeysuckle are my favorite flowers with heedy scents I love. I also love the smell of laundry fresh out of the dryer, wood cabins, and coffee grounds is a good one too!
