Celebration Time - I'm Crying

Hi stampers!  So Ian has a new habit of telling me, "I'm cwwwying" when he's crying.  I can't help but laugh because, no duh, and be super frustrated as well.  It's usually because he's in trouble instead actually being upset about something legit lol!  BUT, I have to say I feel kind of like him with Celebration Time retiring.  I've said it before, but it's my all time favorite bundle!  You need to grab this one while you still can!

I pulled it out one last time (I think) over the weekend and used a sample in the catalog for my inspiration!  As of this post, I think all of the items are still current but things are starting to sell out!  I'm loving these bright colors with the pop of black and white.


WHY didn't I use this particular stamp before this week?  It's so cute!

Farewell Foil Frenzy

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  Lots and lots going on here this week and for the foreseeable future!  I did manage to make a few cards over the weekend.  I combined the outgoing Foil Frenzy DSP with the new Varied Vases set.  I'll miss this DSP, it's really pretty!  I'll really miss these doilies, too!

I also featured my new favorite color, Gorgeous Grape!


Trying my best to use up some of my stash but still feel like I'm not making a dent.  Who else understands? :-)

Happy stamping!

Masculine Mailable Monday

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  It's our official start of summer this week since school is out and I'm guessing it's going to fly buy!  Last summer was weird with me breaking my foot and we didn't get to do a whole lot but we're staring off strong and busy over here this year!

In line with things going too fast, I can't believe the Occasions Catalog period is almost over!  As per usual, I haven't done enough with all that I bought.  One suite which I haven't given much attention to is the True Gentleman suite.  I did manage to whip up this SUPER simple card.


I think this would make a fun card for a grandpa but really, you could send it to any man in your life because a bow tie is grand, indeed!  The DSP is sold out but you could always make it work with just these colors!

How Many New Colors Can You Find?

Hi stampers!  Year one of preschool is in the books!   Now, what the heck am I going to do with Ian 5 days a week all day every day?  Have I mentioned that he's gone from napping a solid 3 hours every single day to only a few hours occasionally?  WHEN am I going to stamp?  LOL!  I'm equal parts excited and apprehensive about summer.  Before preschool I never or very, very rarely had any kind of break from him and I have gotten very used to my free time ;-)

Anyway, here's a card I made last week.  I have professed my love for the new purples we have and I couldn't wait to use them to make some succulents!


I wasn't wrong!  I watercolored with Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather as well as Mossy Meadow.  The other two plants I colored with Lemon Lime Twist and the darker green is our new Shaded Spruce!  Isn't it pretty?????  I did a little wash around the whole image to make it pop, with Gray Granite to make it stand out just a bit.  


And here's the whole thing!  My sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings which is basically the new Teeny Tiny Wishes :-)  I couldn't wait to get my hands on this adorable little set.  It's a great one for almost any occasion you'd need and I highly recommend it if you're new to stamping!  You can pair it with just about anything!  And lastly, I'm going to miss these doilies like crazy!  I'm in denial they are retiring.  You may want to stock up!  They add the perfect touch sometimes!  Off to the corner to cry....
