I don't know about you but the extra hour I have of sunshine makes me extremely happy. I love, love, love it. Last night we spent the extra hour by a campfire in our backyard making s'mores. We were all a sticky mess but they were so yummy. It was nice to play outside a little longer.
First I want to say a big thanks to all the Mama's and the love and support you always show. Your advice is always welcomed in my home. It's also good to read that I'm not alone in my struggles and that many of you are experiencing the same. I loved hearing your solutions and experiences and I shared them with Russ. I have confidence that our *stage* will get better but in the mean time I will do as many of you said and keep my hair dresser wealthy with my color appointments. <sigh>
I have a quick share for you today. I love the Mouthwatering stamp set in the Occasions Mini. I love every image and the images are great for cards or scrapbooking.
The best part about using this stamp set is pairing it with our Scented Embossing Powder. I hope you've tried a few of them. They smell fantastic and the kids just love the idea of smelly good stamped pretties.
This first card uses the Sweet Shop DSP and the fun Edgelits. For this card I stamped the Popsicle in Lucky Limeaid and then used VersaMark over the image so I could use my Melon Embossing Powder. Once I had the image embossed I cut out the Popsicle and placed it onto a small Popsicle stick using a Mini Glue Dot. I love all of these colors together as I think they are very spring and fun.
For this card (really the same card) I decided to take a bite out of it. Ha Ha! Okay, I took a bite with my Scallop Circle punch. How fun is that. Want to know the best part? On the inside of this card I used the Sweet Shop Designer Stickers. LOVE THESE.
Here is a peek at them:
Of course I used the Fudge Pop sticker and it matched the one I made. I love this card because it smells yummy and all the bright colors.
With my extra hour I was able to make TWO Digital Studio layouts too. I KNOW! Crazy!!

Well, I think that is a lot to take in on a Monday. I hope your day continues to be fantastic and enjoy the sunshine if you have it. The East Coast is beautiful right now and the Cherry Blossoms are getting ready to bloom. Hopefully in between the nice weather you are able to craft up something good.
