Life is Good!

Happy Monday!
Well, I got my snow day!! Right now the kids are fighting and I wish they were in school!! I can't believe I actually got two cards done.
The first is Saturday's Cupcake Challenge at Taylored Expressions. I used my Sarah Kay's Picnic of Daisies stamp and water colored her onto water color paper using my ink pads and a water brush (and a couple of markers). I got a little 'button happy' here!

My next card is from this week's sketch at Our Creative Corner.
My dear friend and stamping buddy, Pam got the Top Note die, so I made a bunch of them in different colors of card stock. I stamped the tree from Thoughts and Prayers onto a Sahara Sand Top Note using markers. The sentiment is from Make it Count, it's stamped on Sahara Sand cs in choc. chip ink, then punched out with an oval punch. The smaller part of the sentiment is stamped in Certainly Celery ink on very vanilla cs, then punched out with a small circle punch and popped up with dimensionals. The rest is pretty self explanatory.
Before I go I wanted to mention that Deena is celebrating her birthday today and she's having a party, check out what else she's been celebrating- she might even have some goodies to give away- go check it out!!
That's it for now, thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget to smile a lot today! :

Hugs and Smiles~
