Hello to You

Good morning! Do you guys have Spotify playing while you're in your craft room? I sure do. With a wide range of music types, it just meets whatever mood I'm in. Love it.

Hope you guys are having a good week. It's been good in our corner of the world. I'm still exploring sketch and color challenge blogs out there. I think I'm finally starting to hit my groove with clean and simple stamping. I love my die cutting machines and cutsie cards and minis, but I have to admit, this is a very nice change after doing that for 4+ years.

The Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Catalog is available to order from beginning August 1st. That's exactly 2 weeks from today! I love all the Halloween goodies in there. Halloween projects (cards, minis, etc) are my favorite to make each year.

  1. I can relate to the enjoyment of stamping and coloring. It's going back to when I was a little girl. I would sit and color for hours. I,too, love my Cricut and Die cuts but find stamping and coloring to be more relaxing. I'm going to check out Spotify. I use Pandora right now. Have a great rest of the week. TFS!

  2. Sweet summery mix of patterns! Thanks for joining us at PPA!

  3. Fun card! Especially love how you added a little ink to the flower edges! Thanks for playing along at Pals Paper Arts!
