Swinging by to say "hi"!

Yay! More time for crafting! Well, you won't believe this but I made two cards today - yes, two! And I've decided to only use stamps that have not yet had any ink on them!

I am entering both of them into the Sweet Stampin colour challenge and the gal on the swing also into Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge...










And the second for Cards Pattern sketch challenge...





I'm running out of that gorgeous paper! Tempted to buy more, but I just have far too many other paper pads to use up! Must be strong...

Off to cook dinner, then make more cards - hoorah!


Papers/cardstock: Stampin Up cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper pack
Mediums: Primsacolor pencils, Sansador, Memento blank ink
Stamps: CC Designs Sugar Plum Cherry Emma, CC Designs Sugar Plums Swing, TGF Reading Fairy
Accents: buttons and ribbon from stash, iridescent pearls and lace (got both from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here and here)
Tools: Xcut scallop punch & border system, Nestabilities Labels One,

Hi! I just put all my stamp sets in a pile (the "to be used" pile) that have never had any ink. That is another idea in my long list. Just how to find time...anyway...love these cards! Especially the little girl swinging by...so cute.

Beautiful as always and good for you, inking those stamps. I have a few sets to do that with yet.
Oh no card making for me lately. Just too busy and tired. I am just beat and figure out why? maybe because I don't sleep but 4 to 5 hours a night and that is too hard on a antiqued gal. LOL
Have a great weekend
