Sassy Weekend of Fun and Stamping!

Happy Monday!  ( Happy as it CAN be) I hope your weekend was wonderful - I had a wonderful weekend of relaxation, shopping, friendship and stamping.  My friend Kimme came down from Maryland for an Girls-weekend (without kids) with my BFF Jimmi and I.  We went to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Virginia Beach and Vendor Fair.  It was the most relaxing time I have had in quite awhile.  We enjoyed shopping, eating out and just hanging out and stamping.  If you haven't noticed, I haven't been stamping very much lately.  Since it was VSN weekend on Splitcoast, we decided to check out the challenges.  I did not enter any of my cards however because I was way too busy chatting to finish in 45 minutes.  (It's all good)
My first card was inspired by the VSN Challenge- Summer Foods We Love.  I used the Paper Makeup set, Freckled Lemondae (Digi Version).  I just LOVE this set.  It is the perfect Summertime set and so much fun to use.

The next card is using the Paper Makeup set, Color It and my new SEI designer paper and brads.  I just love this set, it is a lot of fun to color.  Plus I got to use some of my new goodies.

The net card.....well it is a silly card I made since I was having so much fun.  I was flipping through my brand new 6x6 pad of Cosmo Cricket  paper named Matilda and I had an idea.  I paired my paper with the chipboard cut outs I bought this weekend as well.  I have to say, when I flipped through the pad of paper...I decided that the "ghosts" in this line could also pass for something else.....and I just couldn't resist making this card just for fun.  I have a twisted sense of humor....and I am not going to apologize

New Release Review!

Today I get to show you one of my favorite stamps from the August release from Paper Makeup Stamps.  It's the word art stamp, The Most Beautiful Thing....and I paired it with the butterfly and flowers from the new release Color It stamp set.  Don't you just love this stamp?  I went with my "go to" color scheme: black and white with a pop of pink and used this week's Card Patterns Sketch (#76) as my layout.  I see so many possibilities with the sentiment it is crazy.  It is so versatile I can't wait to have time to use it again!  
Be sure to stop by the Paper Makeup Blog today to see more inspiration using this month's new releases.  I know my fellow Makeup Artists will blow you away with their creations! 

Thanks for stopping by today- have a FABULOUS Tuesday!  (or as fabulous as a Tuesday can be.....)
