Hi there, I hope your weekend has gotten off to a lovely start!

Today’s card uses the You Are Enough stamp set from Concord and 9th.  I pulled it out again because today is one of many cancer-versaries for me (this one’s for surgery) and when my mind decides to go on an emotional roller coaster ride without my permission, a simple and strong statement like this sentiment can feel grounding.

You Are So Cool!

Happy Friday, I hope you had a great week!  I’m late with today’s post because I’ve had a wonderful couple of days off from work filled with crafting.  Today I had the opportunity to drive down to Scrapbook Island’s Creative Escape in Los Gatos, CA to craft with a friend I met at last week’s The Coloring Roadtrip Challenge, and one of her lifelong friends.  It was a lot of driving for me, but totally worth the trip!

Today’s card features the sweet hippos from Clearly Besotted’s Cooling Off stamp set, and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s So Cool stamp set. Continue reading “You Are So Cool!”

Today’s card uses the single panel that I finished coloring in those seven hours (did I mention the chatting?).  It features the Altenew Sweet Peas stamp set, and a sentiment from Altenew’s Crafty Life stamp set. Continue reading “#Craftyfriends”
