my sources say no!

Good Morning!

I have another Avery Elle release card to share with you.
This one is a trip down memory lane, 
it's called Good Fortune.

Do you remember those crazy, shakeable 8 balls that you could ask a question and you would get an answer that floated up out of the abyss?

Well then you will like this set!!

I used one of the sentiments to stamp in a rainbow of colours asking the question, then used the triangle and another sentiment for the answer.

Head on over to the Avery Elle blog to see what Heather created to share today as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

P.S. today was supposed to be my little man's due date, 
so I thought I had better post a pic or 2!!
He weighed on today at 7lbs 5oz, he's gained 1lb 4 oz since birth.

I just LOVE his little feet!

It's your day!

Good Morning!

It's a beautiful Saturday morning here, finally. :)

It's time for a new RetroSketch challenge, and this week's is fabulous as always!!
The sketch is based on a card by our fabulous headliner, Kim.
You can see her original here.

Super cute!

I wanted to try to keep to the square card theme but for some reason, when I do them, my eye just isn't happy!

I used an image from the new TAWS set Spring has Sprung and the sentiment from All About You.

Head on over to the RetroSketches blog to see Kim's new take, plus what Arielle and Laurie have for you as well!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

I used the glasses and bow tie from Hipster-Potamus.

all about you

Good Morning!

I have a bright and sunny card to share with you today.
I made it using the new TAWS set "all about you".

This set has some super sweet sentiments.

I cut this one up so I could place it how I wanted. 
I love that you can do that with clear stamps!!

I am also loving playing around with this messy distress ink technique.
Just stamp the pad onto a waterproof sheet, spritz it with water then smoosh a clear block into it and smoosh it on your card.

So easy and lots of fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

RetroSketches #49 with TAWS & some news!

Good Morning!

This will be a super quick post,
 but I have a super easy card for this week's RetroSketches.
It's based on a card I made here.

I am still in baby card making mode, 
so I whipped up this quick card using an adorable image
 from the most recent TAWS set release.
This one is from Tiny Treasures.

The sentiment is actually from another set in the release, Spring has Sprung.

Head on over to the RetroSketches blog to check out the fabulous creations by Arielle, Laurie and our new headliner, Kim Singdahlsen.

I also have a little piece of news to share......

I had a baby!!

Ewan Jackson Curry was born at 225am on Monday January 28th.
I am so in love with this little man.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I'm off to try and catch a little nap. :)
