A Little More Inspiration!


Well I must say that it has been a very productive weekend stamping-wise. Nick has to preach on Sunday and so he has spent a lot of time working on his sermon. I spent the morning cleaning too, so that was nice! We actually did spend quite a bit of time together yesterday afternoon though. He took work off so we went out for lunch together, had some cuddle time on the couch (we wanted to take advantage of the warm sunshine), and then went on a LONG walk together! It was so wonderful! Both of us are feeling almost 100% better from our illness so that's great! Anyway, after our afternoon break, he got back to work on his sermon and I stamped! It's so nice that we share the office as my stamp room because we can still chat while we work!

Anyway, before we went to bed I decided to check to see if the SCS Inspiration challenge was posted and it was so I decided to make one last card! This week Stef picked this amazing website called "Room Service Home". This site is seriously amazing! They have the most beautiful stuff! It's too bad that it is even more expensive than Pottery Barn! Haha! :D Anyway, I requested their catalogs so I can still be inspired to create my own look! ALRIGHT! Back to the card! I am sorry for my morning randomness! After browsing their site I decided to be inspired by this adorable Easter Village. I paired the picture with the Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge #1. I have been in a springy mood and wanted to make an Easter card using my much missed "A Good Egg" set. I decided to use the large egg and stripe stamps since I had yet to ink them up. I stamped the egg on a piece of dp from Nana's Nursery. I then stamped the stripe on a different piece of dp and added some stickles. I then cut out the images and glued them together. After layering some So Saffron, Baja Breeze, and the green polka dot dp, I then tied on some Baja Breeze ribbon, stamped "happy easter", attatched the egg with dimensionals, and stuck on some dew drops. This card was really quick and easy and I truly love the end results!

P.S. Stamps and Smiles is a new line of stamps by the adorable Jennifer Meyer. Her dad designed the stamps and did such a wonderful job! Make sure you stop by the Stamps and Smiles blog or Jennifer's blog to congratulate her! :D
