Sending Love

Yay for Friday!  We had a lot of rain yesterday, but it looks clear right now so I might get to take Ryan to the splash pad when it opens in a bit.  He needs something to expel some energy.  I took him to a drop-in daycare for a few hours yesterday, I think he really needs to have other kids to play with.  He must have played hard because he conked out when I got him home, so I had a nice quiet chunk of time in my craft room :) And some brand new stamps to play with!

Posted For You and the coordinating Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch were a bit of an impulse buy for me, but I'm so glad I got them.  Beautiful images and I do love that punch too :)  I'm also really enjoying the new color family DSP packs; I still wish they were 12x12 to make it easier for me to use them in my scrapbooks, but since they're 6x6 I've only used them on cards so far.  I have the Brights and the newer In Colors; I definitely plan to get the other color families.

Speaking of colors, I used the color challenge from Cupcake Inspirations:

I used Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, and Flirty Flamingo for my colors.  There isn't a Blends pack for Coastal Cabana, so I used the lighter Bermuda Bay and then did the color lifter on the leaves and that seems to coordinate okay with the Coastal Cabana cardstock.

Here's this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to use that stamp set and punch :)

I'm off to watch Paw Patrol with the spawn.  Hope you have a great Friday, y'all!
