Our lovely Heidi treated the DT with a huge package of lovely goodies & in mine I discovered these cute Memory Box stamp & dies :)

I've created this card for one of my baby girls godsons Cobey, who is five years old. He is such a lovely little boy who definitely deserves a card to tell him how proud Jodie is of him.

I've actually got a bit inky on this card! The sky background was created using distress inks & water on Ranger Inkssentials card, & Cobey's name is stamped in SSS Audrey Blue ink using SSS Sketched Alphabet Stamps.

Shake It Up & SSS New Release!

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I feel like I'm getting back on track a bit & finding my card making love again thankfully.
I think life has just been so sad & busy I'm forgetting to make some "me time" to spend in my favorite room surrounded by pretty flowers, papers, stamps etc, I do love my pretty craft room :)

It's Wednesday which means .........
 at
& this week our challenge is
SHAKE IT UP!
For this challenge we would like to see some shaker style creations, you can shake some ink sprays and give your projects a spritz or use an action wobble to make something shake! Whatever you decide to shake we will be looking forward to seeing it!

 It's new release day at Simon Says Stamp & the new exclusive collection is called Reason To Smile.

To see the full release just head straight over to Simon Says Stamp.

I have created a really quick & simple card to feature a new large background stamp called "Peeps Background" which is so cute. 
Have you noticed what is odd about this card? No embellishments!!!
I photographed my card quickly & put it away thinking "out of sight out of mind" as I know if I could see I wouldn't be able to resist adding flowers, pearls, bows, which is what always happens when I attempt a CAS card.
That's it from me today peeps, thanks for stopping by
