The Scrapbooking Queen's New Stamp Release Blog Hop Day 1!!

 Welcome to my Castle!

 If you have arrived from Talented Barbara's Castle, then your in the right spot! If you were stopping by to visit and would like to participate in the New Stamp Release blog hop, then head on over to The Queens Castle, she's waiting for your arrival!

The Queen has given us some wonderful Stamps we are showcasing for you today!

 If you just take a step to the East Wing of the Castle you will walk right in to my art gallery, there you will find my card creation!

Awww, I see you made it!

If you have been following me, I  mentioned that my daughter will be getting married soon, so these stamps are right on time! This is the card I will be giving to the married couple and I love love love how it turned out!

I am using The Scrapbooking Queen's "Congratulations" sentiment from the Royal Wedding set. This sentiment adds the perfect elegance to my card and  it's just what I was hoping for!

 I also added some of her "Royal Jewels" the color matched perfectly! 

I hope you have enjoyed my creation and had a nice time visiting my castle, now head on over to the next castle where you will find the Fabulous Cindy and check out her inspiration she has on display for you!

You can pick up your sets of stamps and jewels, along with other items at The Royal shoppe, invite your friends to visit as well!
