hey, so happy for you






I'm always a happy crafter when I dig into new goodies:


I'll admit, the Doin the Wave Confetti Cut looks like bacon, eh?  It was perfect for my card....this is going to my girl that has a bunch of goodness coming up in her life.

The sentiment and cardstock are from the June Simon Says Stamp card kit {Love it!}.

I was inspired by the current



Here's another card that came out of the June SSS card kit:

cardstock:  SSS Lagoon mono, misc ivory  stamps:  SSS Favorite Flowers  ink:  Fresh Ink Red Currant/Grass/Black Tea, Memento Tuxedo, copic YG03  other:  martha stewart washi, neat & tangled gold sequins, avery elle hello die



The solid blob stamp looked like a strawberry to me...it even had the seeds.  I fussy cut a loopy bloom for the hull.

I used some of Neat & Tangled's



I'm linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

I've really enjoyed CASE'ing Wida!

You may have seen these cards that posted over on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog but I wanted to make sure they made it over to my blog:


THIS pin inspired my first card.

I super love my 2nd card and will tuck it somewhere in the hangar for Darin to find:


I'm a big napster...I generally get 5 hours of sleep and need the extra cat naps!  My 2nd card was inspired by THIS pin.


The Monogram Alpha should be a staple in every stampers inventory.  Such an awesome font!

I've really enjoyed my 3 months over at the Sweet Stamp Shop!  I feel so fortunate that I had the opportunity to be part of that awesome family.  I learned so much during my time there and have been so inspired by my Design Teamies and Nicole!

  13. Wow, this post really packs a punch! How many cups of coffee did you need to get it finished? Ha ha! I love LOVE the wave on your first card...nothing wrong with bacon although if mine was blue like that, I'd be concerned. The strawberries are amazing and I LOVE that you saw the shape that way! The SSS cards, well, what can I say other than PERFECT!
