Back to Some Stamping!

Hello, friends! Happy Monday to you! I realize that my posts have been a bit sporadic lately -- life has forced my stamping and blogging to take a back seat (I hate when that happens!)! Subbing for most of the last two weeks caused other things to slip, and I spent much of the weekend catching up on laundry, housecleaning, errands, and bills. Plus, both Kyle and Megan are winding down their seasons in soccer and cross country. Kyle's soccer team is in the post-season tournament, and they play their next match tonight -- then again later in the week when they win. Megan did very well in her cross country meet Saturday in Louisville and earned a spot in her team's JV regional meet tomorrow. There has been a need for more "Mom" time than "Designer" time lately, but I wouldn't have it any other way! :)

I hope you'll be glad to know that I will have plenty of stampy fun for you in the next week -- it's New Release time! I'll have some ATS previews for you starting tomorrow, then the MFTeasers will follow! YAY! Today, though, I have a card to share featuring one of the new images from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I fell in love with these funky and sassy Moonlight Whispers images, especially Francesca! Just look at that stack of cupcakes! :)

I used BasicGrey Urban Prairie paper, and I colored with Copics. I grabbed some embroidery floss and added stitching to a SU! felt flower, and I also machine stitched around the background paper.

This card is already in the mail to my sweet friend Joanne -- Happy Birthday, girlie! Stop by her blog and give her a little birthday love! :)

I'll have my first All That Scraps preview for you tomorrow -- I hope you'll stop back! Thank you so much for visiting today!

Have a wonderful day!
