So Happy For You

Yesterday I was able to use 2 new stamp sets from the current SU! catty.

Penned & Painted and Sunshine Sayings

For years all I made were floral cards and then I started to colour with Copics. Solid stamps took a backseat in my collection. 
Now that time is not on my side I recognize the importance of having some quick and easy stamps to use :)

Had I not misplaced half of this stamp set, I would have completed this card in probably 10 minutes.
I honestly thought I'd lost my mind and had to get my husband to help me find my stamps. He found
Stuck to the bottom of my stampin' scrub pad....haha!

Colour challenge and Sketch challenge

Stamps: Sunshine Sayings, Penned & Painted
Paper: White, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red
Accessories: Elegant Eggplant Ribbon, SU Brick Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

New SU! goodies!!

Hi :)

Things have been super busy around the Easton homestead.
Between moving, working, doctors, dentist, ortho appointments there just doesn't seem enough time in a day anymore :( 
Yesterday Brian encouraged me to take some ME time and go stamp with some of the SU! goodies that arrived last week.

I played along with two challenges for both of my cards.
