CCMC 285 and FM 142

Good morning! If I can craft like this once a week, I'd be set! But, school starts back for me tomorrow (eek!) and that might be easier said than done. In the meantime, here are a few challenges I was able to complete yesterday!

First up, Friday Mashup 142 had a birthday challenge:

Stampin Up Spice Cake DSP; Chocolate Chip and Pool Party Inks; Perfect Pennants Stamps, Twine and Early Espresso bakers twine. Inspiration found here

  And Create with Connie and Mary Challenge 285 had a fun sketch! It's too bad I missed the submission for it :(

Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Pool Party Inks; TT ribbon, PP paper. Hampton Arts Doodlebug Designs Friends Stamps. Pearls.
The stamp set I used here is probably the first stamp set I ever purchased (many moons ago)! I was introduced to Stampin Up but, this was before I fully drank the kool-aid. This is a photopolymer set that without blocks-I think I used a Fiskars stamping thing- and using my kids construction paper and acylic paint, I managed to make something. I'll have to see if I have a picture. Thankfully, I've purchased a few (too many) supplies since and now have proper inks and acrylic blocks to use. It was fun to bust out this old (but little used set). Its a crafting resolution I have for the new year!

Hope you have a stamptastic day!!

Kids back to school day!

Good Afternoon! The kids went back to school today so I got a chance to craft! I was able to complete three different challenges...this is a rare occasion!

Never mind the list of other things that need to be done. Anywho.

First, Create with Connie and Mary CCMC 284. I found inspiration here:

Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black color challenge. Blue Ribbon stamp and a really old BB DSP.

Try Stampin' on Tuesday 150:
Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, Pistachio Pudding, Pleasant Poppy Stamp Set, Sweet Sorbet DSP
 Finally,  Friday Mashup:

Baby Bundle Stamp, Sweet Sorbet DSP, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit paper, Basic Grey, Summer Starfruit inks. I am itching to add more to this card.

Oh, and this tragedy happened that I'm trying to ignore. I didn't lock the drawer and a certain lady(who likes anything with a screw lid) got into it. At least she said "uh oh"  and I caught her before she made too big of a mess. Sigh...
Yep, that's embossing powder...a whole container of it. Don't worry, the Tangerine Tango was all over the carpet.
 Have a stamptastic day!
