Made another card using my cute macaroon stamps for the 'Celebrations' theme challenge at Ribbon Carousel. After I made the card, I realized one of the design team members used the same stamp and sentiment...oops! Well at least the layout is totally different. Had fun again using colored Memento ink and heat embossing and using the matching die. Makes me want some macaroons now! :O Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

I made a simple card using TGF's Glimmer Bean! I tried so hard not to buy them but I finally gave in! :O I would have almost bought all of the Bean Collection but a lot of stores are sold out and TGF didn't have any! They seem to be perfect to color with 'out-of-the-ordinary' hair colors. Did the challenge at Charisma Cardz Challenges. (Theme- No digis allowed) Used the sketch from here. Hope you're all having a great Monday! Thanks for your visit!

Decided to make a simple white on white card. Used my new macaroon stamps by Avery Elle. I had no idea about this company until seeing someone's card with these macaroons while blog surfing! Aah...so of course I had to buy it! (I love macaroons!) I used Memento ink and eat embossed them and the dot background is dry embossed. Sentiment is by Paper Smooches. Will definitely make more cards using these! Did the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! :)
