Sweet Stamp Shop Goodness

December 30.  How did that happen?!  It feels like somewhere between the end of August and now, time just took off!  Tomorrow night is New Year’s Eve and we’re starting to think we’re going to just stay home and enjoy some quiet as a family!  That probably has a little something to do with the fact that we were out of the state most of last week and happened to have a little respiratory ugh traveling with us the majority of that time.  We got back Saturday evening, had church at our house Sunday morning and tonight we have a potluck at our house with an overnight guest.  The boys will go back to school at the end of the week, weather permitting!  Whew!

Before we left, I actually made a couple cards!  I knew today was my day to post on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog and wanted to have something to share along with the photography tips!  Be sure and stop by the Sweet Blog to catch up on the Picture Perfect photography series I’m authoring!

I made a New Year’s card first with the versatile City Scape set!

After stamping the line up of buildings and the sentiment, I used SU’s Brushed Silver cardstock for the colored buildings, fussy cut them and then popped them up with foam dots.  I added three clear gemstones for a little sparkle.  So fun!

I then went on to play with that adorable Panda Face set again…

The cupcake image and sentiment are from the Easily Distracted set (another fun one!).  I figured there couldn’t be anything better than a cute panda bear with a cupcake!  Cupcakes are always good in my mind and, come to think of it, it’s been a while since I’ve had one!  Better change that soon!

For now, I’m off to prepare for the evening’s events!  Two batches of baked spaghetti, one chocolate peanut torte and homemade garlic bread need to be created and there’s plenty of laundry from our trip still grinning with amusement at me, so best be putting my blinders on now and getting things done!

Have a marvelous Monday!
