Window Shopping ... Thanks Friend!

So sorry I've been MIA... a couple of months ago my Dad became ill and was hospitalized and has since come to live with  me. Needless to say my craft time has diminished. I have a couple of cards to share with you today, I hope you are inspired.

My focus for these two cards was the {Window Shopping} stamp set... which has been carried over to the annual catalogue - yay! This set coordinates with the Window Box Thinlits. I chose to use the floral image, which is a square stamp. I stamped four using two of my favourite colours Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy. I altered the sentiment to have my greeting say from Thanks for being a great friend to Thanks for being great.

Next, I kept it very similar but again editing the sentiment to just say Thanks Friend. Instead of designer series paper in the background I opted for an embossed panel using the {Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder}. My colour combo is Pool Party and Bermuda Bay..love!

This is my Dad's dog Lily. She has now joined our fur-family. Isn't she adorable? This picture reminded me about how sad I am that I still have my pre-order goodies in the packaging... Hopefully soon I will have some time to break them in!

Lift Me UP + Cupcakes & Carousels

Hello stampers! 

Stampin' Up! released their 2017 retiring product lists today. I'll admit that I am really sad to see so many of my favourites leaving. I think I will miss Mint Macaron inks... cardstock... well everything. 

One of the items that I absolutely love is the [Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack]. This paper is one of my all-time favouites, I love every design and the colours are perfectly suited to each other. I have a card to share today that I created with this stunning paper stack. 

The background really pops with these designs. I added a diecut hot air balloon and a few clouds. I hope you like my card.
