Couple of Quick cards using Stephanie Barnards new stamps!

Happy Hump Day everyone!

A few weeks ago I ordered some stamps from the stamps of life by Stephanie Barnard and I like I have done a lot in the past set it to the side and got busy doing something else. I have to be honest and say that stamps have always "caught my eye" but when it comes time to actually making something with's a bit overwhelming.

Well last night late my husband informs me that he needs a couple of cards for tomorrow...EEKS! It's late and I recently went through all of my card stash and donated my cards to the cards for hero I had nothing!

Then I remembered that I had this set of stamps and decided to pull it out and use them. Well I can't say enough awesome goodness about these stamps...they are totally awesome! They work so well together and the sentiments are the ones that you reach for over and over again.

Honestly...these are the BEST stamps I have ever I decided to join the monthly club... if you are like me and haven't really gotten into stamping, you might want to check out the monthly kits on over at the stamps of life (

Anyway, here are 2 VERY quick cards that I made last night with this set:

So, today my husband headed out the door with these little is for a guy that has just found out that he has so sad and the other one is a simple thank you for a co-worker.

Well I am going to go play with my stamps some more ;)

Have a happy day!

BBTB Blog Hop

Happy Monday!!!

If you are blog hopping today with the BBTB site I am the last stop on the hop! As you know by now (if you have been following the hop) we were challenged to use the "priceless" cut from the graphically speaking cartridge this week.

Although this cartridge has been out on the market for a while, it's a newer cartridge for me personally. I have found that this cartridge is perfect for layouts and it's become one of my "go to cartridges". I have also found that the cuts alone can spark ideas for an entire it's a must own/purchase in my opinion.

Here's my take on this weeks challenge:

I also have a "giveaway" up for grabs with the hop today...simply leave me a message with a way to contact you by this Thursday *midnight MST* and I will draw a random winner using Friday morning and announce the winner here on my blog.

So what's up for grabs? A Basic Grey Mini Album and some labels/tags from 7 gypsies and a few other companies (there's around 15-20 labels/tags). For those of you that like "visuals" here's a picture of what you could win:

If you arrived at my blog from somewhere other than the hop and would like to join in on the BBTB hop today...make sure to head on over to the beginning of today's hop... click here to redirect to the ever so talented Regina.

Have a super week everyone!

Hellooooo out there....BBTB Challenge

Okay so that seemed appropriate given the fact that it has been so long since I last blogged. For those of you that didn't know we headed out of town for a much needed 2week vacation. Our little family went to Disney World, took a Disney Voyage, and then traveled on to Georgia for a family wedding and my parents 50th anniversary. We had an AMAZING time...and I know a few of you have emailed me asking for photos...and perhaps this week I will get around to posting a few of those :) I think I will finally be done playing "catch up" at the kids school, the laundry (yes, I am still getting that settled), and life in general :)

So this week I have something to share from the BBTB site. This week Regina challenged us to use the dragonfly cut from the camp out's my take on this weeks cut.

Make sure to stop by BBTB to check out all the amazing creations from the other designers.

Have a super week!
