Couple more challenges!

It feels soooooooooo good to have a little time to stamp and it has been three days in a row.  Good to have my life back, lol.  Stamping truly is the BEST stress reliever in the world I can total loose track of time and just relax and create.  Love it.  Speaking of things I love--have you noticed I have a new favorite color combo thanks to the new Floral District Designer Paper Pack!  Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry!  Love it, I am actually needing to buy more Rich Razzleberry and I have not touched that color is a real long time.  It is awesome with the Pumpkin Pie too.  Check it out in the next two samples.

First the 411 sketch for this week--how pretty is this new set Blooming with Kindness.  I knew I loved the flower but was not sure I would like the font of the words--those double fonts sometimes make me think it looks like bad stamping--you know what I mean?  But it is pretty--thanks to Mary Brown--I now own it too!  She is such an enabler--seriously.

Stamps: Blooming with Kindness, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Baja Breeze, Floral District DP, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry
Other: black satin ribbon, banners die, thin black ribbon, markers, blender pen, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder

This next card is for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge--this may be the first time I have played with them???  Not sure but it was a harder sketch so I was looking for a challenge--and I got one, lol!

Lots of new items on this one too.  Can you tell I finally got my "big" order.  Shhhhh, don't tell hubby it was all mine, lol!

Stamps:  A Fitting Occasion, Happy You
Paper Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Floral District DP
Ink: Black
Other: markers, circle punches, large scallop circle punch, Delicate Doillies Sizzlits,  Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Embossing Folder, rhinestones

Geez, that was a lot of typing.  Hope you enjoy your weekend.  Hope to spend some time at the pool today with my son and my kindle!  What more could a woman ask for?!
