Ballerinas, Buttons, and Bows



I had to take a second look at this adorable trio! They're so sweet. I can't decide if I like them more in pastels or in pink and brown. Luckily, I don't have to choose! Hope you're doing well today!

Three Lovely Girls


Now, who can resist these cuties? I think they're adorable! And, this is great fun, Chichiboulie has made them available in separate images too! This fun paper from Stampin' Up gave me my color scheme, but I can see them in pastels too. Gretchen has done something really grand with these images. She has arranged the file so that more the images print multiple times on the page. I love that because you don't get one image right in the middle of the page. It's a real paper saver! Of course, stampers love cardstock scraps, but this just feels less wasteful to me.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!

Perfect for a Party

Happy...Monday? :P

Here's a second image from Chichiboulie's new printable line. Isn't it adorable?! I love dress stamps, they make such versatile images. This one would be so cute for a birthday card or to welcome a new baby girl, just darling!

New Images to Love

Long time no see! I have a great reason for coming back now, can't you tell? My sweet friend, Gretchen Jackub Fabre has begun a new undertaking and, when she asked me to help her, I jumped at the chance! Oh, silly me, you all know and love Gretchen already! She's Chichiboulie! But, have you checked out her site lately? Gretchen is now carrying a line of "printables" that we stampers are going to have to have. This is one of the first ones I have worked with, "Anabel's Ice Cream", but there are several posted now and Gretchen promises more to come. Take a look! The images are digital (no shipping charges, easy to store, quick to download).

I'm happy to say that Gretchen sent me several images, so I'll be back with a couple more cards, but don't wait on me. See what you think!

A Friend to the End

Oh, such an adorable turtle carrying such a bright message. I had to put him on bright colors! The finishing touch is the Stamping Bella bonbon in the center of his flower, love those bonbons!

Hope you've had a great weekend! We spent the day with my nieces yesterday and I even got to play Barbies for a while. What fun! We were watching High School Musical and playing Barbies. It's a good thing I never had any kids, I'd be playing all the time! Oh, wait, I guess stamping is playing, isn't it? ;)

Have a great week!
