SU Blooming with Kindness

I really tried to veer away from flowers for The Paper Players #158  since these colors just screamed posies to me…but in the end…the posies won! I inked up my flower with SU Crisp Cantaloupe and then used my sponge dauber to add  SU Strawberry Slush before I stamped the image. I made one card with a some glitter pen on the flower, and it was downright ugly! So I stamped another and let well enough alone! Ever feel like simple is just better sometimes?

SU Morning Post Alphabet JOY

I have had the SU Morning Post Alphabet stamp set for a long time, and I finally pulled it out to use for Freshly Made Sketches #99 this week. I was in a simple mood today so this card reflects a CAS design with a little bling. I trimmed the card to be 4 1/8 inches wide so the scallop adhered to the inside that peeks out of the right side would make the card a standard 4 1/4 inches. In person, the Silver Glimmer is so pretty especially with  the letters mounted on the new SU Winter Frost Designer Paper Stack.

SU Tag It with SU Tag-a-Bag Bundle

These cute little Tag-a-Bags from SU just make me smile. I especially liked using the SU Tag It stamp set that is the current catalog’s Ronald McDonald House stamp set that gives $3 to the charity when purchased. I decided to make one into a Get Well Soon gift for Tara’s Lovin’ Tags challenge at The Friday MashUp # 122.  However,  I feel like I might be needing one of these Get Well Soon Tag-a-Bag gifts after I finish moving my three kids into their new apartments in three different states…I am feeling tired and worn-out right now. How many of you are in the same boat these days?

Get Well Soon Tag a Bag

Here is what I put into the Get Well Soon Tag-a-Bag:
pocket tissues, cough drops, and a Lipton Cup-a Soup packet.
