KCC #562 {Stamp Act}


Hey, hey everyone! I'm baaaaaack :) 

I took the month of May off from crafting and some other things in my life, so I could help our daughter and son-in-law with our beautiful Grand Daughter, Kinsley. She was born April 29 and is just so precious. For the most part, she is an amazing baby - however, as most babies do, she has her bad days/nights sometimes and Momma and Daddy get tired - so Gramma steps in whenever I can. It's tiring just doing the every day with a newborn let alone when they are fussy or don't want to sleep, so I am so very thankful I am close and go help our daughter at the drop of a hat. 

So, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all the Chicks for picking up all my slack and handling everything while I stepped back. I sure do appreciate it xoxoxo

I would also like to welcome Carol Gill back to the hen house for June - as our wonderful Guest Designer. Welcome, Carol! :)

OK..now, onto this week's card - Leanne is our hostess and since it's the first week, the theme is STAMP ACT. As long as you have some sort of stamp on your card, you're able to come join us!                    



Thanks for stopping in today to see what I've been up to - be sure to hop on over to the rest of the Chicks' blogs and leave them some love also. Have a wonderful weekend - cheers! xoxoxo

Refresh...


Happy May long weekend everyone! It's been so nice to be out in the yard and on the deck, enjoying some coffee (when not too chilly lol). Mother Nature is very deceiving right now - it "looks" sunny and gorgeous out, but the darn wind is so chilly still...our nights have been in the below zero range and I've lost some flowers already to frost, so I will need to replace some, but hoping now the temps start to rise and stay above zero at night :) 

Today I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers - for the last time as a DT member. Yes, I have decided that my full plate needs to have some stuff taken off and make room for my new Grand daughter and just "slowing down" in general and trying to have more free time available. I can't thank Amy and the crew enough for all the love and wonderful friendship over the years at CLC and I will still be participating in the blog hops etc. as they are PHENOMENAL! :) So I won't be a stranger, I promise ;) 

For my card this week, it needed to be a quick and simple one yet have wow factor and I think it checks off all the boxes ;) This set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is awesome. Big, bold images and fonts make card making easy! Here's a close up:



 Thanks for stopping in - sorry I've been MIA for about a month, but I've been spending any extra time I do have, helping out Kim and Landon with Kinsley. I will be back with Krafty Chicks in June! Cheers, y'all! xoxoxo
