Happy Saturday!

Today was a beautiful day! I believe it was at least 70 at my house....beautiful....a much needed dose of sun! I spent the morning at a track meet for my daughter and the afternoon cleaning the garage and getting a few other things done around the house.

Last night I finally got to stamp! I needed some young fun birthday cards and being in the mood for summer, I picked some fun papers and stamps. I also decided to give the newest release of Sheet Load of Cards a try! This was my first time using something like this and I think I like it! I kept everything very simple; perhaps next time I will add more embellishments and be a bit more creative. Some of them don't have any sentiments, but I still might add them later.

I think the Sheet Load is a great idea and I will definitely do it again, especially when I want to make a set of matching cards! I received my new set of C.C. Designs Its My Birthday this week and I was so excited to use it! This is my first C.C. Designs set and I'm in LOVE! I was soo impressed with the quality of the rubber and I LOVE the thin EZ mount! This is the coolest stuff! I think I want everything mounted on this stuff! The images stamp beautifully and I'm so impressed with the quality and you can't beat the price, and definitely not the shipping at All That Scraps! This monkey is probably the cutest one ever and it was so easy to color! I used a paper piercer to poke the holes for him to hold the birthday sign. I think this is a cat....not 100% sure, but whatever it is......it sure is cute! I glitterfied the presents and the cupcake because I'm not very good at detail coloring....and glitter covers up a lot of mistakes!

This cute little girl image is from The Angel Company Girlz & Boyz set. I think the kidz in this set are really cute and fun to color!
This cute little beach guy is a retired TAC stamp set. The DP is Doodlebug Sunny Doodles. (My friend Janette used Daisy Doodle and I thought it was super cute...so I found Sunny Doodles..it is just as cute!)
I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I know I am! Tonight I think I will get a few hours to play....and Basic Grey Sugared is calling my name! Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Great cards as usual Kisa. And yes, Saturday was such a nice day. When we went through Bunker Hill at 5:00 pm it was 73, I was amazed. Of course I am sick so I slept most of the day yesterday.

You rock Kisa, look at all those cards! They are adorable! I actually printed off the Sheetload April thing last week to try - it's still sitting on my table. You're my motivation girl!
