Christmas in July Blog Hop at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps


Hello friends, Can you believe we are almost through the month of July? Where has the year gone?  Well, we couldn't go through the month without a Christmas in July celebration at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps so today we are having a hop showcasing some of the wonderful Christmas Stamps that Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has to offer- so many to choose from!  I decided to work with SNOWY HELLO, I am a lover of snowmen and this set is perfect for card making all winter and especially at Christmas. 
For my first card I used somewhat traditional Christmas Colors, I colored with copics and the paper is from My Minds Eye.  
My second card is more of a wintertime fun card using paper from the same pad of My Minds Eye Paper, I colored with copics again and did a bunch of stitching on this one.    Christmas set of their choice (in stock) from the Sweet 'n Sassy Store "You will be able to find all of the team participant blogs at the end of this post. Simply click on their name and you will be taken to their blog. The list will be on each person's blog, so no need to hit the back button. Just look for the next blog in the line-up and off you go! Please be sure to leave the girls some love along the way. We will be drawing a winner from all of the blog comments and that person will receive a FREE Christmas stamp set (in stock) of their choosing from our line!" All Christmas stamp sets will be 15% off through the weekend- use the code CMASJULY at checkout.  Now go hop!

Thanks for hopping with us, have a blessed day!

Happy Day

It's freebie Friday at Bug-A-Boo Stamps, doesn't this just remind you of summer fun times?  There is nothing like a good potato sack race!  I have colored with copics and the paper is from Echo Park.  Make sure you head on over to the store and grab your freebie and then head on over to the Catch The Bug blog and get inspired by what the DT did with this image.

Fall Flowers

I decided to do the sketch challenge over at SCS today and went with a fall theme.  I am so sick of the heat of this summer!  I used the Wildflowers set from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, I used distress markers to color my stamp and then spritz it with water and stamped on watercolor paper.  The paper is from DCWV.

Coffee..... Anyone????

Was not planning on making a coffee card today but came across this image I printed out eons ago and since it is the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop I would make a card.  I had this paper on my desk so I just went with it.   The inside reads.... "Never under estimate the power of being properly caffeinated!"
The perfect little card for a coffee gift card!

Way out of the box....

This is way out of the box for me.  In fact, it almost made the circular file but I think I salvaged it and it is actually growing on me.   This is my first purchase of a Unity Stamp..  I used all watercolors.
