2 + 2 + 2

Hellooooo.  Hoping that those of you who celebrate the 4th of July had a wonderful day yesterday!  We didn't do much ourselves except go to a local parade, BBQ for dinner and *hear* (not see) lots and lots of fireworks late into the night.  It kept me up for a while, but eventually I was able to sleep and didn't mind so much. It only happens once a year and is always so fun.

Today I have two cards for you for two challenges from two of my favorite stamps companies!  The first is for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge blog, the July 1-8 trend watch based on this picture.

Obviously, I was feeling a little red-white-and-blue here, I didn't go that direction on purpose, but hey, whatever works! :)   I like the crayon from the Smarty Pants set, because I feel it channels the kid in all of us.  In this card it represents what was and what is and would be a perfect card for a teacher or maybe a graduate.


Second I have another card for the Lawnscaping Challenge #37, Using Dimesion.  You may have seen my first post here in which they let me be guest designer for a day on this challenge!  My first time being a guest designer, so super exciting for me! :) :)  This card is actually my entry for the contest.  


This stork is my fave stamp in this stamp set- Plus One.  I have made so many cards with this birdie!  I also used the little tiny heart from the set, colored it with my glittery jelly roll pen and cut it out to put it on that bundle of joy for a little extra emphasis.  You can see the close up below. :)


I am expecting a some LF stamps in the mail any day now, belated b-day present from my hubby (ISN"T HE THE BEST!) and I am seriously chomping at the bit waiting for them!

Absolutely love this sweet card. You added just the perfect amount of dimension with the stork and the heart. It really comes to life. Enjoy your new Lawn Fawn stamps! A hubby who buys you LF is a hubby worth keeping! ;o) Thanks so much for playing with us at Lawnscaping!
