Thank you for all the well wishes. I'm feeling a little better, at least my nose has stopped running. For some reason I get a cold this same time every year and it tends to linger on for the whole month of June. I'm crossing my fingers that this isn't the case this year.
I'm sharing one of the few cards left in "the stash" today. I made this card in February!! Yikes. Can't believe it is still sitting on my desktop. It uses one of my favorite butterfly stamps from DRS Designs and my absolute favorite Cosmo Cricket Gretel designer paper!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Tomorrow is the May Firecracker Designs blog hop...I'm not participating this month but you should still check it out. My fellow design team members outdid themselves with a patriotic theme this month!

The new DRS Designs release is coming up in about a week and a half. The sneak peaks will start coming next week! You won't want to miss them!

Enjoy your weekend!

Graduation Time!

Hope everyone is having a great week. Unfortunately after having a super crazy week last week, this week I'm sick with one heck of a cold. So bad that I even skipped work this morning.
Since I haven't had the energy to make anything new yet this week, I am pulling another card from my "unblogged stash" (which is almost down to nothing after these past few weeks of not stamping).
Since graduation time is upon us, I thought would share a graduation card I made with one of the newly released stamps from DRS Designs.
Supplies used: stamps from DRS Designs, Quickcutz die, Swiss Dots embossing folder, SU CS, brads, foam dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Twinkling Jacksonbelle Challenge...

I did it work schedule has been CRAZY so I haven't had much time to stamp in the past week or so. I finally found some stamping time yesterday but only enough time for one card. SO.....I combined challenges again (but only 2 this week).

First challenge is the Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday blog challenge. This week the challenge is to use polka dots. If you decide to play along be sure to use keyword JBE055 when you upload to SCS or PCP. Jacksonbelle carries tons of awesome polka dot products that would work fabulous for this challenge. They have some beautiful Prima polka dot cs, polka dot May Arts ribbon and a super cute Prima polka dot clear stamp just to name a few!

My card also uses this week's Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday sketch. Madelynn is back after taking a few weeks off and her sketch is fabulous! If you play along be sure to use keyword MTTSC24 when uploading to PCP or SCS.
My Jacksonbelle polka dot TT sketch card:
Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU Cardstock, Basic Grey Pearls from Jacksonbelle, May Arts ribbon from Jacksonbelle, Cuttlebug die, Copic markers.
