Sneak Peeks and an OCC challenge

Good Saturday Morning!
I've had such a great week. So many exciting things going on in my life right now and I'm so happy to have my Mom here to share them with her.
Today on our blog Our Creative Corner we have a new challenge posted. This week Jennifer Meyer is our host! It's a GREAT sketch with so many possibilites.
I can't believe how many of you have come out to play along with us...so fun! Did you play last week? If so, you may want to hop on over to the OCC and see if YOU are a winner! Well even if you didn't play last week, you still should hop on over there....lol....there's another surprise this week ;)
Ok so onto my card....
I turned the sketch on it's side as it worked better with the stamped images I wanted to use. I am in love with these Verve floral stamps...can't get enough of them! Brian received his Verve stamps yesterday in the mail ;) I can't wait to ink them up...haha! He ordered them for me last week and so the envelope was addressed to him....it took so much willpower today to wait until he got home...as soon as he did....I showed him....then ripped the package out of his hand and dug right in~! So look for more Verve cards very soon!
Stamps: Petals and Stems; Cardstock; Certainly Celery, Soft Sky, WW and Imaginisce DP; Inks: Certainly Celery, Soft Sky, So Saffron, Black; Accessories; Dew Drops, Paper Snips, Dimensionals
It's time for another Sneak Peek from CC Designs. Tell me these ice cream friends aren't adorable?! I had so much fun with them....
Each month Christine sends the Design Team a kit to work with. Both of my cards below are made with supplies from the kit. All of them can be purchased at All That Scraps.
So do you want to know what this cool new set is called?
Sweet Treats ;)
Don't forget that these stamps all go on sale July 7th at 10 pm Eastern!


Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you all enjoy the weekend!

Great samples for the CC designs, too. Oh my word! My husband is going to KILL me this month! I've already gone over twice my limit that I set for myself. LOL Oh well...I'll cut back on...well...NOTHING. Ha!
