sweet stuff.


Happy Wednesday.  It is the midpoint on my vaca and I'm loving being slightly lazy and slightly productive.

I thought I would do a catch up on my Sweet Stamp Shop projects that haven't posted over on my blog yet.  

Today I'll show you April Release #1:

Isn't Miss Cheeky adorable?

I water colored her with distress markers and made sure to add some rosy cheeks!

My next card had me chuckling when it was completed:

See her hat and apron?  They were made by embossing the maid's hat, one right side up and the other upside down.

Why yes, I do love to give all the animals rosy cheeks and/or freckles:)

Next up is a clean and simple card using

Here's the April Release #1

Who can resist that sweet squirrel?!  I'm such a fan of woodland creatures and love all the fun accessories!

The possibilities of the Emotions set is ENDLESS!  Love the words!  It can also be teamed up with

I know, right?!  So cute!

The beauty of hats is you can design a gazillion cards with the set alone or team it up with one of the several animal sets:

Don't forget about:

I'd love to hear what you Favorite set from April Release #1 is!

I thought I would go ahead and share my project that posted over on the Sweet blog last week:

Why yes, I still love neon!

Although you can get all the deets about this card HERE.   I can tell you that I got the nod of approval from both of my {fussy} kids.  That's a true compliment in the Momma book.

I made this especially for my awesome bloggie friend, Lauren.  She spent a day with  us when my girl and I were in NY a couple weeks ago.

Gotta love a neon shaker card!

I used

Speaking of NY, my boy is in flight there as I type:

He has several fabulous opportunities lined up to meet with/job shadow some important people in the design industry.  We went to Nordstrom's to pick out a couple outfits and this is one of them.  

✭✭Proud Momma Moment✭✭

Although I wish I was traveling with him {he's with his Dad/Step Mom} I know that he is going to do a spectacular job...{my stomach is doing flip flops as I type}.  

I love my Boy more than he'll ever know!
