New addiction

My latest addiction is spotlight stamping.  I heard that it has been around for a long time but for whatever reason I didn't bother trying it before and now I can't stop doing it.

It will be a lot easier if you have a solid stamp image for this technique but no worries if you don't have one.  As a matter of fact, I didn't have one either so I created my own.  The sentiment comes from three Lawn Fawn sets and guess what?  If you look at the two Ps in the word happy, you should notice some difference.  Got it?

I'll tell you this secret:  The second P is actually a D but to make it faster and easier to stamp out the word happy, I just flipped the D over and used it as a P.  It is really one of those happy a-ha moments!
