Rubbernecker Previews - Day 1 - Hoping to Find a Real Stud!!

Rubbernecker Stamps is releasing MORE new stamps on Tuesday 4/12/11. 

To give you a PEEK of what’s to come - we are having TWO days of PREVIEWS!!  Welcome to DAY ONE!!

Today I'm highlighting happy little Ethel (Ethel Nailing #562-04).   Dear Ethel is presently looking for a guy - so this sentiment (Find a Stud #564-12) seemed perfect!!  And as you can see -  she'd be quite a catch as she is VERY handy around the house!!!
I used last Wednesday's sketch from Split Coast for my card.  Just click on the pic to see it larger.
 
You will want to visit the Rubbernecker Blog for links to ALL of today’s preview participants!! And you won’t want to miss out on the PRIZE for today!!  The Rubbernecker Blog has ALL the details for you!!
