Mocha Me Crazy!

Wow - I cannot even believe April is almost over! We had a dramatic week last week with our little dude getting very sick, very fast! Fortunately, he's on the mend now, though I'm still recovering from the fright and having our week turned upside down!

Happy Birthday!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by today! I have a card to share using one of the new sets releasing this month at MFT.

I LOVE the new Cupcake Cutie stamp set, because the accessory images are large enough to take pride of place on a card. I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge for Birthday cards.

Diva Inspirations Hop - Statement Thank You!

Welcome to our Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Inspirations Team to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs! So be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift certificate to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.

This month we're also saying a fond farewell to Jen del Muro, as this is her last hop as a Verve Diva. She's been a part of the Verve team almost from the very beginning and although we're sad to see her go, we're so excited to see the things she has up her sleeve for the stamping world!

Fittingly, I've used a stamp set based on a concept from Jen, Making a Statement.

Glittered Butterfly

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Easter! We enjoyed spending time with our little guy. He's almost 10 months old now, and this is such a delightful age. He's tottering around, playing games with us and begging for a little bit of whatever we're eating. So cute!

Today I have a card I made for the technique lovers challenge at SCS. This was such a fun one, to stamp, mask, sponge your card and leave the image uncoloured, adding only glitter. I was intrigued and couldn't wait to play!
