Sweet Friends

Good morning!  Well, it's Monday again, and the start of another week.  On this cheerful Monday morning, I have some cheerful cards to share with you that were made with some of my new stamps.  A couple of sweet sisterhood friends sent me some wonderful goodies for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and I was like a kid in a candy store oogling all of the pretties, and I couldn't wait to ink up my stamps and play!  Here are my first two cards with my new toys, and I have to say thank you to my sweet and wonderful friends.  You know who you are, and I hope you like what I've done with my goodies.  Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness.  You are the best!!!
 My first card is made with the All About You Additions stamps set from Paper Trey Ink.  The beautiful flowers and special sentiments in this set allow all kinds of creativity for so many wonderful cards.  The image was colored with Copic Markers, and I added some crystal Stickles to the bee's wings.  The second card (below) was made with  the Grammie and Gramps stamp set from The Greeting Farm.  This is such a fun set, and so appropriate and adorable, since our first grandchild is due to arrive soon.  We're so excited about that, and I know I'll get so much enjoyment out of using this stamp set!   Little Grammie was also colored with Copics. Both cards feature paper from the Friends Till The End collection at Paper Trey Ink.  That's so perfect for how I feel about my sweet sisterhood friends...  Friends till the end!   
I'm so happy you could stop by today, and I wish you a blessed day filled with lots of love and even more happy stamping!

Love ya,

I really LOVE these colors together! Both cards are so bright and cheerful and just put a huge smile on my face! And thinking about you and your first grandbaby makes me smile too. That's going to be one blessed baby to be born into such an amazing family!! xoxo

Lorie, these cards are so pretty! I love the colors you used. The flowers from Paper Trey are sensational! I get my cardstock for Copics from PT and need to order some so I just have to check out those new stamps while I'm there! I'd better hop over to the Greeting Farm, too! You're an inspiration! Thanks for sharing!
