*you're the bestest friend ever!*

I'm back again with another one of those cute bunnies by The Cat's Pajamas. I made this for my bestest friend, Jess, who bought me lunch at Applebee's earlier this week. Wasn't that sweet?

*my head's in the clouds*

I can't believe that I already made an anniversary card for my husband, and our anniversary isn't until next month! Woo hoo! I love having something done ahead of time FOR ONCE!

I ordered a few stamps from The Cat's Pajamas when they had their end of summer sale last month. I had been drooling over a few sets featuring this adorable bunny, and after seeing Amy Rohl create some of the cutest cards I've ever seen with them, I knew I HAD to have them! Amy is one of my favorite stampers, and once you stop by Ink About Me you'll see why. She is one talented chickie, and I couldn't resist borrowing a few of her super cute ideas. Like the pennant sentiment and how she paper-pieced the bunny's plane. She's got an eye for mixing patterns and colors, and that's one of the things I always notice about her cards.

Here's a peek at the inside:

It takes a little extra time to stamp the inside, but it is so worth it!

Thanks for stopping by!

*tea for two*

I'm about to dart out the door to pick up the kiddos from school, but wanted to share another vintage-y card I snuck into my stamping room to create this morning. Embossing folders are such a great way to add a bit of texture. This one's called vintage wallpaper, and it's made by Stampin' Up.

*herbal tea company get well card*

I'm so glad you stopped by. Today I'm sharing a vintage get well card I made using some awesome stamps by Prima Marketing.

Here's a close-up view of the tag. The tag and sentiment are from one of my favorite sets by PaperTrey Ink.

Here's a peek at the inside.

I've been thinking about listing a few of my cards on etsy. I've never tried selling any of my cards before. It might be fun.

Have a beautiful day!

Every once in a while, a person makes a happy little discovery quite by accident. I recently stumbled upon Julie Marshall's blog, Stamping Impressions, and I was inspired to create this card after staring for quite some time at this delightfully, wonderful creation of hers! I'm always tickled when stampers are so generous about sharing their creativity. I'm also humbled by their incredible talent!

I love new stamps, but it's surprises me how quickly I get tired of what I already have and think I need to buy something new. So it's good for me to see other stampers using their retired stamps. It helps me to appreciate that while new is always nice, it isn't necessarily better. All of us have stamping supplies sitting around that haven't been used in ages, and it makes my heart happy when I'm able to find a good reason to pull out some of those old items and put them to good use. So here's a big thanks to Julie for helping me do just that!

Thanks for stopping by!

*another thank you*

Here's a sweet little thank you card I whipped up yesterday between running errands and attempting to clean my house. There are so many great blogs out there, and I found inspiration for this card on one of them... but can't seem to remember which one! I love the look of stamping the flowers on top of a newspaper background.

It's been ridiculously hot here the past few days. I guess I'll just have to stay inside and stamp! Thanks for stopping by!
