Sassy Weekend of Fun and Stamping!

Happy Monday!  (ok...as 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

Good luck to you as you start your new job. I know it is hard to make the decision to step down from a DT, but family is first.

Adorable cards ~ love the bright cheerful colors on the first one and those yummy papers. On the second one I love the popped up parts on the flower and butterfly. And the third one is just fun ;)
