SugarPea Designs - Unfrog-gettable

 Hey there, SugarPea Designs friends!

The card I made today is the epitome of SPRING, yes?!  LOVE that endearing little guy with his froggy friend.  This stamp set, Unfrog-gettable, reminds me so much of my Ben who spends a lot of time outdoors "exploring."  When he was little, he was always catching toads and tinkering around with Daddy's tools in the garage.  

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Share Joy Challenge - Wild Birthday

Hey there!
My new Taylored Expressions goodies arrived!  Woot!  I couldn't wait to break them out and use them on the new Share Joy Challenge #28!  I was inspired by the clustering on the sketch and nestled that trio of cuties together, like one sweet little family!  There's a little guy that with a birthday coming up...and I think he'll love this fun birthday card (even though it has a smidgen of pink:).

These little jungle animals from Hippo Birdy stamp set and coordinating Hippo Birdy dies are so ADORABLE...and those Tag Stacklets 3 dies are a must have, perfect for layering and framing!

The paper I used is Echo Park's new Spring pack (that I also grabbed from the TE Store) and the baker's twine is from The Twinery.

Hello, Panda!

Hi there, stampers!

How fun is this little panda?!  He's the cutest thing...with his bamboo stalk and all!  
I paired him up some fun MFT Die-namics for a sweet and simple "hello" greeting card!

I stamped this a few weeks ago to play along in an MFT Color Challenge, but just finished editing and posting here, just for F-U-N!

Linking this CUTE and CUDDLY card up to the newest Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

I stamped little panda with black on white...simple, then stamped the bamboo with a shade of green...layered it all up with some fun Blueprints and a sweet "hello" die-namics, too!  Little panda is pretty CUTE and CUDDLY, isn't he?!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
