You Should Have Known I Would Be Back! :D

I have new stamps to create with...remember??? :D I was able to use one stamp from each of my new sets and I really love them! This first card is the little lion from the Mindy's Zoo collection. Since I was the featured stamper this week on Splitcoast and couldn't play, I decided to case a featured stamper's card from a previous week! The stamper that I choose was Denise! :D She is so incredibly talented and I LOVE her cards! She also has a fantastic blog that you need to be sure to check out! Anyway, I chose to case this card of hers. Isn't it just adorable??? I kept the sketch the same along with the ribbon placement but changed about everything else. I really like this layout! It is so fun!

This second card was made using my OWN sketch! I told you I would do it and I did! :D Now, the sketch is simple, but a girl has to start somewhere...right? I decided to pull the owl out of my new Birds Galore set and it was perfect because as I was making it, I was actually listening to an owl across the road in a tree! It was so neat! This card was quick and easy and I can give it to a man OR a woman! Can you get much better than that? Haha!
Ok...that's it for tonight! Nick and I are going to watch one of our new $5 movies from Wal-Mart (another steal I forgot to mention)! We got Mr Deeds, Big Daddy, School of Rock, Secondhand Lions, and The Princess Bride (which was actually only $4)! We couldn't believe they were all so cheap! Such good movies too! Anyway, that's what we are doing, pizza and a movie. Have a terrific night everyone! I will be back here in the morning! :D

These cards are adorable! I loved playing in the FS challenge today on SCS! Your gallery was (as my 11 year old says) ROCKIN'! I did love it! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hope you and your DH have a great movie night! I love Princess Bride and Secondhand Lions myself! LOL!

Thanks again!

PS - Colorado is our FAVORITE place to visit - we hope to have a home there someday!

I like your sketch - it's simple but looks great.
The lion card is amazing wiht the colours and dp you used. I was going to get this set then didn't and now I may have to reconsider!
