It's July and time for a new stamp set from The Stamps of Life. This one is "berry sweet"!!! :) It is called strawberries2love and super fun to stamp with. Be sure to check out all the great samples by the design team here. Hope your summer is off to a good start. My youngest daughter and I made a "road trip" to Dallas a couple of weeks ago. We were visiting with my oldest daughter and went to see "Mamma Mia" (the traveling Broadway version). Was supposed to see Paul McCartney but he had to reschedule his concert for October (so I guess I'll be making that long drive again). Starting to look for things for my daughter's college dorm room in August (sniff, sniff) where she will be attending Mississippi State University. I already miss her!!! :) This "mom" stuff is soooooo hard. :) Stay cool (only in air conditioning in Alabama) and visit again soon.

It's been awhile since I've had time to do any challenge blogs but found a "little" time to play yesterday. :) My Paris card is for Runway Inspired #61. This was a FUN card to do. I tried to stay "true" to the photo inspiration from Runway Inspired's challenge. The stamps are by Darcie's, LLC which I heat embossed with black embossing powder for extra sharpness. The Eiffel Tower die is by Sizzix. The cardstock is by Diecuts With A View. The summer is off and running. Lots of heat and afternoon thunderstorms which makes for staying in the air conditioning a nice thing indeed. My youngest graduated from high school last week (valedictorian of her class....WOOT, WOOT). :) I'm trying to spend as much time with her as possible before she leaves for college in August (sniff, sniff). I'm beginning to think this "mom" stuff is hard. Wink. We have a fun road trip to Dallas planned soon where I have tickets to see Paul McCartney plus the musical Mamma Mia. Visit again soon, stay safe and cool this summer.

Today's card is one I did for four challenge blog sites. I based the layout of the card on Sketch Saturday's design. Casual Friday's challenge is called Shades of Gray so I used gray cardstock plus a silver (which looks gray) glitter cardstock. The Runway Inspired challenge photo is also in gray with touch of black so I think it works with it as well. Last but not least, City Crafter Challenge wanted a black and white photo for their challenge. I used a photo image stamp by Stampsmith (LOVE these type of stamps). :) The pretty diecut is a new one by Sizzix called Curly Gate. The sentiment stamps are by Art Gone Wild (one of their Words To The Rescue sets -- Variety Pack 2). Hope your weekend has been a good one. I'm off to put some pork chops in the crockpot for a easy dinner. That way there will be more crafting and relaxing time this afternoon. I'm hoping to read some too. I have started The Troop by Nick Cutter. I like to read all types of fiction as long as it is good (wink). Saw where Stephen King said The Troop scared the h--- out of him. That really got my attention. Would I be brave enough to read it and turn the light off at night? :) So far, so good.

The Stamps of Life March set was called crazy4daisies. I'm posting the "extra" set for it called patterns4flowers. More patterns and fun sentiments for the crazy4daisies set. I tell ya having stamps sets like this take almost all the work out of creating your cards. :) Check out all the ideas for these stamp sets in the gallery. Can't believe it is March already? Getting excited as I get to do some traveling this month to visit my oldest daughter in Dallas (where we will be going to see Cher in concert). :) I may have to grow my hair long, paint my nails and wear a halter top. Nah, just messing with you....no one would want to see that! Wink. :) Hope you have a fun weekend of crafting planned.

New month, new stamps! :) The February release for The Stamps of Life is called spinner2stamp and is soooooo much fun! I'm sharing three quick cards I did with the set. The St. Paddy's card also uses the set shamrocks4us (just in case you had to know.....wink). :) I hope you are staying warm in your neck of the woods. This winter has been a COLD one in Alabama. It makes for some nice warm days in my craft room though. :) Until next time.....
