New SU! goodies!!

Hi :)

Things have been super busy around the Easton homestead.
Between moving, working, doctors, dentist, ortho appointments there just doesn't seem enough time in a day anymore :( 
Yesterday Brian encouraged me to take some ME time and go stamp with some of the SU! goodies that arrived last week.
These are items in the upcoming catty that releases in a couple of weeks.

I played along with two challenges for both of my cards.

Freshly Made Sketch
Color Throwdown
This first one uses the new Swirly Bird stamp and Swirly Scribbles dies. The sentiment comes from the hostess set called Gift of Love. Don't you love this new SU! In Colour called Sweet Sugarplum.

My gosh things have been insanely busy around my house.
We are packing to move and trying to find time to stamp on days off has been a bit of a struggle.
I have managed to make a few cards over the last few weeks though.
Usually when I need a little break I head downstairs and sit at my craft table.
My stamping supplies are almost always the last things that get packed and are the first things that get

A Happy Hello

A Happy Hello is right!

I've had a busy vacation week. It was mostly a Stay-cation but for the most part I enjoyed my time.
Chloe and I went to Calgary to do a little shopping and had some girl time. It was fun! I got my hair done and lightened it a bit for the summer :)
Then of course I had new stamps waiting for me!
I created the card below using these sweet Reverse Confetti images and dies.

This card was also created for two challenges:
1. Freshly Made Sketch #230
2. Color Throwdown # 386 - Lime Green, Teal and White
Stamps: Rose Garden, Whole Lotta HappyPaper: White, Lucky Limeade, Temp TurquoiseInk: Temp Turquoise, Lucky LimeadeAccessories: Reverse Confetti Rose Garden Dies, Wink of Stella, Dimensionals, SU Brick Wall Embossing Folder

May Your Day Be Filled With Sunshine

Kick back with a good book!

Happy Birthday To My Husband


Today is my husband's birthday and unfortunately I have to work so we'll celebrate tomorrow as a family.
I did however make him a card ;)
Over the years he's gotten use to me making him cards that were sort of feminine. Mostly because when I first started stamping all I had were flowers or cute little images.
I don't think he'll be shocked when he gets this with HOT pink on

Once again I used the Freshly Made Sketch and the Color Throwdown Challenge to create this card.

Hello - CTD380

Happy Wednesday!

Today I hope to spend a little time stamping :)
I really do need to clean and organize my craft space but once I sit in my chair I just want to get inky!

Here is another card I created for the Color Throwdown Challenge.
I wanted to keep this one fairly clean and simple.
Stamping the streaks from Over the Rainbow in three colours and the butterfly from Watercolor Wings in my reds. I die cut one of the butterflies in Smoky Slate and popped it up with a dimensional.
