In the meanwhile...

...while I have 99% of my stuff in crates and outside in our backyard waiting for our new carpet to come in this Friday...I made a couple cards! I couldn't take it that we had to wait an extra week because the carpet guy screwed up and signed us up with a carpet we chose that the warehouse didn't have it in stock!!! Oh that was a mouthfull...but it drove me to insanity...so since I had that extra week...I thought I'd bring in some stamps to play with. I just couldn't take it anymore!!! NO STAMPING??? The horror!!!

This one here is Hammock Riley from Hanna Stamps...one of my favorite places to shop for fun stamps! I fell in love with this Riley I HAD to pick him up!!! Isn't he the coolest on his hammock? I got inspired to use him for a swap to use "Dew Drops/Baubles" when I was listening to the song "Island In The Sun" by Weezer! Love that song! Hey...it's on my music player if you wanna listen to it! ;)

Supplies:
CS: RRock, CChip, SU DP, & VVanilla
Ink: Black Staz-On, SSky, CCaramel, & Prismacolor Markers
Stamps: Hammock Riley
Embellishments: Dew Drops/Baubles
Others: Coluzzle & sponge wedge

These are also for an SCS swap that asked for making cards with butterflies. I just love the Essence of Love set so much I had to use it for these mini cards AKA 3 x 3's! These mini versions are so much fun to make because it's a challenge to create something nice on such a small "canvas".

Supplies:
CS: CChip, C2Cocoa, & BBlossom
Ink: CChip & C2Cocoa
Stamps: Essence Of Love
Embellishments: chocolate satin ribbon & dew drops
Others: N/A

The Riley card is adorable and the butterflies look so elegant. Nicely done on both.
