Whoa! (plus blog candy)

It sure has been a long time since I posted! I must do better! The stamps I ordered earlier in the month just arrived this past week, I haven't even had time to trim them much less ink them up! As soon as I do, I will be sure to post here. I'm thinking the Superhero Dad will make a fantastic Father's Day card ...

I spent the day yesterday with my BFF at a charity crop. It was such fun, and they treated us like Queens! The buffet table was overflowing, we bopped to disco music all day, and we even had wi-fi available! I am never super productive at crops, but it's wonderful to just hang out with other ladies who like to papercraft, that I don't even care how much I get accomplished!

Lastly, I want to share this fantastical blog candy with you. It's up for grabs at Passion for Crafts. And, it's some of the bestest blog candy I've seen recently. Good luck (but I hope I win, lol!)

Oh baby! New Stamps + Blog Candy

There is a new image release over at Starving Artistamps ... and I really like them! Their Doodle Factory images are a little wacky & cartoonish which makes them very unique, however, that is only one of the Starving Artistamps lines. They have some nice realisitc images too. But ~ the best news, is that the Starving Artistamps blog is giving away new stamps for blog candy; you can check out the prize and rules here: Starving Artistamps Blog.

I am entering for the blog candy, but the new Super Parents stamp images were just too cute. I had to have them asap! So I went ahead and ordered these two sets:

Do you love those "Super Parents" as much as I do? I think they are hilarious! And I just liked the row of houses .. looks like they will be perfect for coloring with Copics. I also ordered a container of Flower Soft ... which I can't wait to get my crafty little hands on!

I saw four really cool background stamps that make landscapes in the Doodlefactory line ... not sure why I didn't go ahead and order those too. I guess that will give me an excuse for placing another order soon! And be sure to check out the beautiful floral stamp images at their site. Starving Artistamps has quite a variety available. I'm glad I stumbled upon them today.

Looking for a few suggestions

I shipped off my Wizard today. Hopefully by this time next week I will be happily die cutting and embossing paper.

Tomorrow I am taking my son for a sleep study. Since he is a minor, a parent has to stay with him (in the same room), and since my dh is a fantastic snorer, I am the one who is staying overnight. Too bad I can't carry some projects with me! That would be awesome. If anyone has suggestions for reading material, or other things I can do to pass the time please leave me a comment. I doubt we'll have internet access, so I won't be able to surf.

I got a new stamp set today by The Greeting Farm. Maybe I can have a couple of samples to show you by next week. Until then ...
