new technique

Hi guys!!!
So this is my first time doing this new technique... I believe it's called "mirror stamping!"
I've never done this before and I actually got tips from Kelly Marie herself from Lawn Fawn =)
*I couldn't believe she emailed me back when I had sent her a msg about how to do this mirror technique!!*

& the way she taught me how to do this was using another Lawn Fawn stamp as my stamping base...
and here's the link to the video she had attached to the email she sent me!
& I hope it helps you guys who are interesting in doing this technique.
the video was done by Chari:
here's my card for Lawnscaping challenge and simon says

lawn fawn happy mail

Hi everyone~~~
how was your thanksgiving dinner???
(Sorry... here in Canada we celebrate our THANKSGIVING DAY in October... I know in the USA, they celebrate theirs in November =) so it's a little confusing, because in November, us Canadians we have Remembrance Day instead hehe)

I went to visit my folks and guess what??
I got Happy Mail from Simon Says Stamp!!!
and this mail was from when Lawn Fawn was giving away a 15% off coupon per order when you buy Lawn Fawn Stamps from Simon Says =)
well I kinda got the tail end of it and I didn't exactly get ALL the stamps I wanted, BUT I still got some of the stamps I wanted on sale =) so YAY!!!
SO I hope you guys have a happy long weekend =)

here's a little blurry photo of what I got:

I got:

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Hi everyone!
happy TURKEY day!! gobble gobble LOL
anywho, I don't really have any plans this weekend because my friend who was going to have the Thanksgiving dinner at her house this year cancelled =(
too bad... but I do have a little card for this week's sweet stop sketch and TGF challenge - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
and I'm recycling this map I picked up from the NYC 5th Avenue Tiffany & Co store, my hubby and I went to visit this past month =)
SO this Tiffany & Co store in NY was 6 times bigger than the store here in Vancouver... I mean this Tiffany's had not 1 but 6 floors of jewelry! crazy eh?
it was so large, that they gave out maps to visitors so they could go to the floor they needed to...
and because I LOVE the colour of the Tiffany boxes and bags (its that robin blue/ teal/ aqua colour that Tiffany's is known for) I decided to keep the map and use it for this challenge by punching out flowers from the map =) - so if someone looks behind each of my flowers, there's a floor map behind it LOL
anyways, I hope you guys like this card =)

here's my card
