mmm...ice cream...

My latest craft obsession is punches, Martha Stewart has come out with some really cute ones. I've seen the butterfly everywhere so in my search I also came across an ice cream cone punch! To get my mojo flowing I thought I'd combine a couple of challenges. The first is the Dawn McVey color challenge. The colors were pink, yellow, orange, brown & white. I really like this combo it definitely reminds me of summer! The second challenge is for the CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge oer at splitcoast, this week the challenge was to use punches.

love is in the air...

I wanted to make another card for this month's A muse Lounge challenge, the idea was create a card inspired by spring. When I think of spring I always think of love, things are growing and the sun is shining. It's the perfect time to spend with someone you love!

I've also been wanting to play along with one of Amy R's sketch challenges over at her blog prairiepaperandink.typepad.com and this was the cutest sketch to try it out! My favorite part are the little hearts on the bottom right, my mom found these on clearance after Valentine's Day and worked out perfect. So here's to spring and all things love!

spring means strawberries...

at least it does for me! With the start of spring around the corner it means that it's time for the Poteet Strawberry Festival. It's a carnival with strawberries anyway you could want them! So I used strawberries for my A muse spring challenge card over at the A muse Lounge.

I've been super busy at work, which has left me little stamp time. Hopefully things can pick up soon!

This is my favorite saying right now...Clean And Simple. I try to keep my cards simple because that's me for the most part. So here's a quickie for the CAS challenge at Splitcoast this week...

It's Sunday and I'm dreading the work week, I have tons of stuff to get through so I hope to have some creative goodness to work on in the evening.

on the mend...

I've felt horrible the past two weeks, there's a nasty bug going around and it finally hit me! To get back into the swing of things I thought I would try one of Kristina Werner's color challenge. Pink and brown are so pretty together so this was a fun one to try out. I used some glitter paper I picked up from LSS, I've been itching to use it!
