Happy New Year!

I love having time off during the holidays. I can tell you it's been about 12 years since I've been able to have more than 2 days off in a row around Christmas time.  Restaurants are unforgiving.... as people need to eat! lol. I assure you, I am trying to use my time well..... going to bed early..... waking early without an alarm.... and getting creative while the family still sleeps! This is my favorite part of the day!

I saw this post on clean and simple stamping and thought.... what the hey! I'll try it out! So I did 2 cards, one for a boy, and one for a girl.... same pattern, stamp set and base cardstock... just different color combos using the NEW Color Coach ( pg. 165 in the SU main catty, $18.95 CDN ) Seriously..... it's so great and ubber helpful!

The stamp set featured is from ( of course ) the New Occasions Mini Catalogue, it's called Button, Button ( really? I wonder why?) and it's pretty cute.... there's 17 stamps, and a lot of them coordinate with the circle punches.  Anyhoo...... enjoy! I'm going to go tackle more goodies to play with.

- if you can imagine, you can create it.

  1. Hi Colleen, thanks for stopping by and following my blog thru following you as well. Love the ButtonButon card. Was happy to receive as a freebie, but was wondering what I was going to do with it and now I know! Thanks for sharing your work
