How Sweet It Is to be Loved by You...

So it's finally time for the Gina K Designs release...SEVEN new sets!! WOWEE! And not just that, but included in the seven are 1) a new Stamps for a Cause set which benefits Diabetes, 2) a set designed by Gina's daugter Alicia, 3) a set designed by my friend Carolyn King aka Cammie on Splitcoast, and 4) a set designed by Melanie Muenchinger aka melmel on Splitcoast. The other 3 are awesome as well...and you can check them all out here. You'll only see 6 new sets here, and that's because the seventh is FREE when you buy 3 sets! How cool is that?!

So enough blabbing, I have to tell you something. When I finished making this first card, I looked at it and thought, "HEY! My mojo came back!" Now what's funny is that I hadn't really thought it was missing, but this card is so much more "ME" than anything I've done lately, and I was really happy about that. Hopefully I can take the time to find "ME" in each and every design from now least I can try! Thanks for stickin with me while I go through my newfound identity crisis. *snicker*

This second card is made with Melanie's set called Just so Hippy. I LOVE this hippo...she was just so fun to color!! In keeping with finding my stamping self, I sewed a funky double border on the paper and added some bling. I forgot how much I loved this Basic Grey Blush paper and it's color palette...hopefully the new Basic Grey Two Scoops will be just as fun!

Well I am now off to's reeeeeeeeeeally late, but I hope you have a great Sunday! And don't forget to check back on Monday for a My Favorite Things sneaky peek!

Hey Shannan I don't see how your mojo ever left you, but I agree that that first card is super! The sponging really makes it stand out to me.
And I LOVE your new photo! What a great hairut! You look so happy in your picture too.
