Flower Fest Card

Hello Again! I am back for my second post from the new house. I still have not found all my designer paper but I am working with what I have found so far. Ahhh....moving is so fun :) I did this card for the challenge on the Paper Players Blog. I needed some inspiration today to get me going! You can check out the sketch and all the great cards that were designed from it at

So we have moved from Tri Cities, WA, which is pretty sunny to just out side of Seattle where we have found out it really does rain a lot! It is very pretty, and I love all the green, but it is overcast most days. I needed some bright colors to work with today to make up for lack of sun so I went with some Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, and some Wisteria Wonder. I liked the bright colors popping through the dark background.

The stamp set is Flower Fest( Stampin UP Catalog p 124) which is a great set to color. Even my four year old had to get in on the action and wanted to stamp and color some. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs (Stampin UP Catalog p 164).

Thanks for stopping by today!

Watermelon Card

Hello! I am back!!! We are almost settled in to our new house in Maple Valley, WA. I snuck out some supplies and made this card last night for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I still have not found the box with all my designer paper in it so I had use what I could find.

I was really excited to get this set, Mouthwatering, out of the box. I ordered all my new stamps from the mini before we moved and then didn't get a chance to use any of them. I know boo hoo for me :) Hopefully things will slow down again soon and I will have some more time to spend in my new stamp room.
