summer stampin'

I'm back to my stampin' cave and it's been getting a lot of action. My summer vacation is almost over and it's been bliss waking up past 9 am. The day after my practicum ended, I went in the green room where I do my "fun" work and stamped away. Who cares about laundry and cleaning, I'd rather be stampin'!

I had a workshop last week, Aug. 11th where we made beautiful cards. I finally got to use the Urban Garden Designer Paper I bought maybe two years ago. We also made a black and white card using the Circle Circus stamp set.
Then a friend's niece is having a baby shower and since I'm on a roll stampin', I looked at her baby registry and was inspired by the Pop Monkey set from Babies R Us. 50 Pop Monkey cards were done by that weekend!
Pop Monkey inspired!

Lastly, I'm still working on my lil' girl's birthday invitation. Time flies and she's now almost 3 {sigh}. I ordered the CELEBRATIONS set, way too exciting with banners, party hats, designer paper and some cool new stamps! It took me awhile before figuring out what I really wanted to do. The colors red, blue, and green threw me off since they're not my preference but I was determined to use this set. Determination will pay off!

Being T H R E E will be one awesome adventure!
