Happy Monday all!!! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend - it poured and stormed here all weekend, so we had a pretty quiet Easter, but a really yummy dinner!! And, I had time to get two of the challenges done at Stampin' Connection, whoohoo!! So, I am going to share them here today. The first is the Monday sketch challenge since that is the team I am on right now. This week, fellow team-mate Diane Noble posted the sketch and it is fabulous!! I really loved it, the panels are so versatile so I know I will be playing with this one again! If you are SU! demo, be sure at check out the sketch and if you make a card, share it so we can all see!! I played with my new set called Awash With Flowers, which is a preview set for the new catalog coming out this summer and is available to purchase right now - just go here and click on shop now and it is yours!! This is such a fun set, I just love how many different things you can do with it. For this card, I used all my in-colors because they are so bright and vibrant, they look fabulous with these stamps! So fun!!
This second card is for the Inspiration Challenge that was posted yesterday at Stampin' Connection. I very rarely have time to play along, so I was excited to get the chance this weekend! For this card, I used a lot of punches, including my favorite (for now) called the two-step bird punch, just love it!! I paired my Kraft base with the yummy DSP from the Occasions mini called Sending Love - this beautiful paper includes embossed and glittered sheets that are truly gorgeous and fun to play with. My sentiment is from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes - love it!! So, there you have it - two cards and on a Monday too, LOL!! I hope your week is starting out great and gets better as it goes along!! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate all your comments!!! I will be back tomorrow with some fun projects I am sharing at an event this weekend - can't wait to show you!!!
