You make me smile

There was just something about this set that captured my eye..Its not my typical style but I had to have it! Was so happy when it arrived in the mail today too!! Had some quiet time with kids at school and babe having a very nice long nap!!! I decided to incorporate it with this weeks ColourQ cause I LOVE the combo! Its so fresh and and summery and plain ol' fun! Thats just my opinion anyway :)

I was also excited to use some sequence on this card...everywhere I look there are so many cards using them...Love the little extra bling it give...and it matched perfectly with the red! How could I not add them??? 

Oh and PS...
as I've mentioned before I often have a hard time making cards with colour combos as opposed to sketches..but a few weeks back I did make it to the ColourQ Courtier!! This is the card! It made my day! Thanks for the great honour!!!

Hope you have a wonderful day!! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh Hello FTL242

Today I decided to pull out SU first photopolymer stamp set they put out. Its been sitting there staring at me.....This weeks Clean and Simple sketch was the perfect way to put it to good use! (well technically I used the letters from the set in my previous post....)

I usually am not a fan of cutting anything out but I couldn't resist for this card! The talking bubble needed some character behind it!!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

boy birthday fun

Some more playing around with new goodies I got yesterday! And I figured why not work it into a couple of challenges as well??? Not always so good on the masculine making card front! But I fell in love with these bicycles and thought they made the perfect little boy card!!

I used Seize the Birthdays sketch along with Cas-ual Fridays stamp on Designer paper to make this card come together!! I also have a hoarding problem....I'm sure I'm not the only one who does!! So I thought it was time to break open my SU hung up clips! So glad I did! Maybe it will encourage me to use some of the other cute ones I have in there too!!!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!! Hope you all have a great day!!

Well today I was this cute stamps set and paper! I saw it and knew it would be just lovely for this weeks Clean and Simple sketch!!

Hope you all have a great weekend! Its a long one here...and of course its raining! But that means good card making time!!!
