Colorful Cards

Happy Saturday!

It has been a busy few days around here! I have actually fallen asleep 2 nights this week on the couch (early) so I haven't done a lot of crafting this past week.

Even though I haven't done much crafting... I have lots and lots of cards to share.

Today I thought I would share a couple of cards using Courtney's new release stamps from last month.

I really really love the new bike set and I love the new sentiment set too. You can never have too many sentiments!!

We have been working hard at our house to be debt free (besides our house) the past few months. Since we have been doing that... momma hasn't gotten to purchase any new sets in a while. I did get these 2 new ones from Courtney. Since I can see her at church and just give her cash or a check... for some reason that feels okay to do. It isn't like I am ordering a ton of stuff and putting it on a credit card, etc. That is my own crazy way of justifying this new purchase! :)

I will be sooo glad to be able to purchase some new stuff. I am seriously having some withdrawals!! Momma needs some new stamps!!! BAD!!

Anyway... rambling! I have been with my SIL shopping all day. We had a great time but I feel like I have talked more today than I have in a year! :) That's what happens when I get a girls day out! It is nice to get out and just have some time with another woman and not having to be mommy too!

Oh... and the only purchases made by me today was a bday present for my nephew, lunch for me and a Scrapbook Trends magazine (because my card is in it). I even went to a scrapbook store and Michaels and was able to walk out empty handed (besides the magazine)! Go me! I am getting better at this not spending money stuff! :)

Well... I hope you all have had a great Saturday so far!

Peace and Love!
