When I took the dogs out this morning, I noticed that my iris has bloomed overnight. Just look at these gorgeous and vibrant colors! I rushed upstairs, grabbed my Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, and set about recreating my garden in bloom!
What inspires you to create? Is it by occasion? Is it nature? Or is it something else entirely? Leave me a comment below - I'd love to know!
It's going to be a VERY busy weekend here in my studio. Tomorrow begins with Crafty Saturday, my weekly Facebook Live at 9 am, followed quickly by my Retirement Party.
No, I'm not retiring! We're celebrating Stampin' Up!'s Last Chance List and saying goodbye to favorite colors and stamp sets. I've got so many coming, I had to add an additional time slot! Then, at 5:30, my Stamping Bee Team is coming over to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! We're having tacos and sangria, as well as having a card swap and doing some stamping in the New 2019-2021 In Colors! It's going to a great day spent stamping with so many of my friends.
Then, on Sunday, my entire family is spending a week at the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Won't you join me next week when I'll be Stamping at the Beach!

Last night, I shared with you tips and tricks for putting April's Sentimental Rose Paper Pumpkin Kit together. Did you miss it? You can view it here. I really think this Distinktive Rose Stamp is just luscious and I had to make more with it.
Today's card showcases the Distinktive Sentimental Rose and Leaves, on a card base of Grapefruit Grove and my favorite piece out of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. Don't you just love it? I'm filing this stamp set away for future use.

I love the Memories & More card packs when I need a Sweet, Simple, and FAST card! Just look at this! There's not even any stamping. This card came together in less than 10 minutes, and that includes a quick search for my adhesive! The Night of Navy card base and matching envelope come prepackaged and the 6" x 4" card front didn't even need to be trimmed down. All I did was use the Bitty Blooms Punches to add a few flowers, and some Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots for the centers.
This is the type of card we'll be making, along with lots of beginning Tips, Tricks, and Techniques every Wednesday morning at 7:30 on my new Coffee & Cards - Sweet & Simple Facebook Live. Come see what we're doing tomorrow morning on my Facebook Page!
Sadly, all but the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots are on the Last Chance List. Be sure to grab yours while they're still available.

Today's Card Sketch
This month's Sweet & Simple Class will be a little bit different than anything we've done before. We'll still be making 8 cards, but instead of 2 each of 4 designs, we're going to be saying goodbye to some favorite Stamp Sets, Colors, and Designer Series Papers. And because I had a hard time choosing , we're making 8 cards, all different designs!!
Two Times to Choose from:
My Sweet & Simple class is perfect for both the beginner, casual, and avid crafters.
