What stamp is this?

This is just a quick post on this Saturday morning. The sun is SHINING here in Germany. The last few days have been rainy and yucky. I was going through some stamped images I've received and thought this little boy was the cutest thing! Does anyone happen to know who makes this stamp and or what it is called? He reminds me of my son Manuel and I would love to be able to purchase this stamp it makes cute little boy cards. I left my card with no sentiment on the front because I'm not sure what I will use it for yet. I don't have very many boy stamps so this was a lot of fun to play with. I threw a little bit of red in with the Certainly Celery & Bashful Blue actually one of the sites I visit gave me this color combo when I put in the two Soft Subtle colors. I really like the pop of red. I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

You Brighten My Day

ETA: I just had to repost a new picture. I just love the sketch challenge this week at Mojo Monday. It is one I will use again and again I'm sure. I tried to get the card and picture done before dark but didn't quite get it done so the pic is a little dark. I love these Riley stamps!! I'm definitely going to have to get some more. I only have 1. I colored him in with my Watercolor Wonder crayons and a blender pen. I pulled some scraps for the designer paper out of my scrap basket and it worked well! I love using up my scraps even if it means repeated cards using the same paper. But I try to space it out. Someone should have a scrap swap. lol I know I have a lot of scrap paper I'd like to exchange out sometimes I think scrap paper is just as good as a whole 12X12 sheet of designer paper. Because you can use it for challenges like this. Enjoy your Tuesday!!

Smile Daily

Well hello everyone!!! We had a fantastic weekend. Saturday was my hubby's graduation party which turned out fantastic! Can't beat lots of friends and excellent food. Sunday morning my birthday however was a little bumpy at 4am ended up in the ER with my 12 year old for a ear infection. I ended up coming home just in time to shower and make it to church. I came home and slept most of the afternoon so it was a nice quiet birthday! We'll celebrate this weekend with dinner. I couldn't wait for the last two days to pass so I could get to stamping again. I've seen all these challenges and inspiration that I had to post something today. Sorry the picture is so dark but it's night time here. I'll probably repost a new picture tomorrow morning. This card is for the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog. The challenge is a inspiration challenge with pretty yellow flowers. I used my last big piece of Wild Wasabi. I really wish Stampin' Up! would keep some of these in colors because they are some of the best colors they offer. I used my Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder on the two yellow strips. I used the stamp set Women of Life by Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up! called Edgy Eloquence. For the inside of the flowers I used some green flock. I tried to flock some chipboard circles that fit perfect inside the bigger flowers however that didn't work out too well. But I think it looks perfect the way it is. It's really so summery. Definitely looks better in real life. I hope you ladies check out the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog they have some cute things going on over there!
