Hi there, I hope you had a lovely weekend!

Today I’m sharing a couple of cards using the fun new Extra Extra stamp set from The Stamp Market.  I have to confess that last fall I had to ask someone what “extra” meant.  I was like, isn’t there a word missing?  Extra… what?  If only I’d had this stamp set last year, I wouldn’t have had to embarrass myself!

So Thankful For You

Hi there, I hope your week is going well!  I’m in the middle of a gap week between jobs and am just now settling into stay-cation mode. It’s taken a few days to clear my mind of all of the in-progress projects of my old job and of course I’m now realizing that I should have heeded all the advice that people gave me to take at least two weeks off before starting a new job.  Oops!

With the extra time I had last night, I decided to play around with the Waffle Flower Crafts Water Media Mat that I bought last month at Simon Says Create.  While I was there, I had a chance to sit down for a create and take with Waffle Flower and to briefly use the mat for ink smooshing and blending.  I liked how smoothly the ink moved from the mat to paper so I decided to grab some inks I rarely blend with and try my luck.

You Are Precious

Hi there, I hope you’re having a lovely day!

Today’s card uses some beautiful stamp sets from Altenew’s February release.  I love tulips and when I need a pick-me-up, I treat myself to a small bunch (usually yellow) that I put on my craft table.  Plus, they remind me of spring and I think most of us are impatiently waiting for winter to be over!
