In Stamping Mode

Catching up!

Wow has this week just been a whirlwind! I haven't had a spare moment to post, but I've had a bit of time (not much!) to stamp. :) The fam went to Sea World on Wednesday and we stayed in the water park trying to beat the heat. Fun times indeedy! So onto the cards!

This was a card I made for my dear friend, Anitra's birthday. As I write this, she is in the hospital laboring and ready to welcome her new baby daughter Ava any minute!!! I'm so excited for her and I can't wait to see baby Ava. This card was for the CAS challenge over on Splitcoast to use the colors pinks/corals, kraft, and one other color. This is also a Stampin' Up! only card. :)

This next card was created for the Sketch challenge over at Splitcoast and you can view the layout HERE. I tell you, no matter what I did I just couldn't capture the sparkle in this card. Right down to the specialty cardstocks behind the main image panel! So here's the full it's bland-looking glory! *snicker* Just keep in mind it really looks faboo in person! :)

The Happy Anniversary image and greeting is from H&M Stamps and it is not sold out yet!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and getting, "in stamping mode." :)

Love the simpleness + the colors of the top note card. And the bubbly paired with the embossed background is just right! Love your cards!
