For my card today I used three of the new sets. I really love combining sets that are unexpected. 
For this card I added in the stripes from the Handmade Tags set, the sentiment from Family Matters, some gorgeous flowers from Garden Treasures, and the staple of the card the Layered Cupcake. 

You can watch the entire card come together in the video below 

It's a long blog hop so if you don't have time to watch no worries, it'll be here :) 

I have to tell you the finished photos may look slightly different than the card in the video why? 
Because I am the mother of a three year old. 
I laid down to take a nap and left my husband in charge. When I woke up my little peanut proudly informed me that while I was napping he was in my craft room coloring a card. 
Oh no. 

Oh yes, in fat he colored it with copics and nail polish. Before I photographed it. 
So I actually had to color it twice. Good thing he's so cute :) 

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing May Sukyong Park

If you get lost along the way here's the complete list 

Thanks so much for visiting!

Happy Easter: Calla Lilies

Hello Crafters! 

Happy Monday!
It's an oxymoron, I know. 
Shockingly, I have survived the weekend. I was sick, the hubs, was sick and my peanut butter would not sleep. 
Fun times. 

Let's move on to actual fun things, like these gorgeous paintables from Simon Says Stamp. 

The newest release from Simon Says Stamp includes a set of paintables from Suzy that are all flowers. 
It's like she made the set just for me. :) 

I'm sure I'll be coloring a ton more but we're starting off with the Calla Lilies because they are my favorite. 
You can see all the coloring in the video below. 

I can't believe how hard is it to see the pink and purple tones in the photograph. 
They really are there I promise!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
