Impression Obsession Summer Release Celebration Day 2


Good Morning!!!! 
Here we are at Day 2 of our Summer Release Celebration!
  Be sure to leave me some love as I have a gift certificate to give away to one of my lucky followers over this three day period




I made this card with the entire Happy Birthday Set. I just stamped it as it shows on the backing sheet and I Love it!!! I think it looks quite cheery!


For this card, I used some of the images from the  Out of this world set
as well as the Space Ship Stamp and the To the Moon Stamp
I also used the checkered frame dies to frame my galactic creation!

For my card, I paired the Rooster 1 stamp with the Le Chanteclair background stamp

I was feeling in a French Mood given we just returned from Paris last Wednesday

Here are a few pictures from La Beau Ville!



The Amazing Eiffel Tower
It was very interesting to find out the Parisienne People did not want the tower  in their City, citing it an eyesore~



Selfie Love with My Mom <3 p="">





Delicious Macarons!!!
Mom and I participated in a Macaron Baking Class at Les Galleries Lafeyette!!!
Can't wait to try to make them at home!



My Favourite Church in Europe
Sacre Couer in Montmartre




Mom in front of the Sacre Couer





I took this picture of Notre Dame around 10 a.m. the morning of the devastating fire.
We did not go into the Church as I had been in many years ago.
My heart hurts for those who are so deeply saddened by the fire. 
We had just returned to our hotel around 6 p.m., when the Concierge notified us the Church was on Fire. We watched the coverage of the fire from our room and felt sad as we watched the spire collapse. We were thankful we were able to take in the Beauty of this Parisienne icon earlier in the day.


I hope you enjoyed my creation and my mini tour of Gay Paris!

Hope to see you tomorrow with more creations from the Summer Stamp Release

Die Cut Obsession


Good Morning

I wanted to share this sweet and simple Christening card with you today
The photograph really doesn't do it justice, but although it took less than five minutes to create,
it is super pretty!!!!

I embossed the card base with a pretty embossing folder I had kicking around
the house, then I cut one of the crosses from the Cross Die Set

I added a little pink gem to the middle of the cross because it's a sweet little girl that is going to be Christened soon!!!

Have a great day!

Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Bunny Love


Good Morning!!!
Today's Challenge is Bunny Love

I LOVE the new Bunny Die 
I was so excited to get it in my designer box and I have to say it's the first card I wanted to create!

My Girlfriends and I , have a monthly challenge in which one person sends the same supplies to everyone and then we all create a card. It's so fun to see how everyone has such different creations, even with the same supplies. Anyway, this adorable background paper was a piece I had left over from the challenge. I paired it with the Checkered Framesto make this super sweet card.
Happy Easter is on the designer paper, so I left it sentiment free

Hope you likey!
