I'm back, happy and playing along with Paper Smooches Sparks!

hi everyone!!

what a summer!

so much has happened since the last time I blogged.
to fill you in would be a whole post all on its own....
so for now I will give you the short and sweet version:
I moved across the province to be closer to family.
my whole life has changed.
new town.
new job.
new apartment.
need to make new friends.

BUT...I am happy.
this was truly a good thing.

and now that I am mostly settled in,  I have the chance to be creative again.....

so here I am....
I created two birthday cards with my new Paper Smooches dies
(um, yup....I may have done a wee bit of shopping in anticipation of getting back to my creative I needed an excuse to shop, right?!)
this week on the Paper Smooches Sparks blog the challenge of the week is ANYTHING GOES!!
So here are my two cards:

i was inspired by this sketch for this first card:

and I used the negative space to create my sentiment with this die set:

 this next card I made for my grandpa....he LOVES fishing....

this is the die I used, which happens to be the PERFECT size for making cards:

and on both my cards I used some little hearts which came from this die set:

Paper Smooches makes my favorite dies.....and some of the cutest stamps
