It's A Loopy Thing

Happy New Years Eve!!! Can you believe that tomorrow starts a new year? Our plans for tonight are low key, my DH is going to take our two older kids to the movies then pick up dinner and come home to snuggle in for the night, make sundaes and watch the ball drop.
I haven't had much stamping mojo lately, I think I'm just coming down from all of the holiday busyness and need to take some time to catch up. One of my resolutions, for this coming year is to make sure I get more sleep at night, that means going to bed at a reasonable time every night. Ever since having my two year old my sleeping patterns have been messed up and I know I don't get enough rest especially since I have mornings like this morning were I got up at 4:45am with our two year old and didn't go to bed until well after midnight. How about you, do you have any plans for tonight or resolutions for the new year?


For these two cards today I used the sketch from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge from this last Saturday and fun new Stampin' Up stuff! The stamp set and designer paper is from a level 4 hostess set (It's a Loopy Thing) from the new Spring-Summer Idea Book and Catalog and as a demonstrator I was able to order this bundle (stamp set, designer paper and rub-ons) before the catalog comes out on January 19th. I'm excited to get my hands on the new catalog and see all of the great new stamp sets and products! The cards are 4 1/4" square and I used my SU square punches for the images and then my Nestabilities for the mats after I colored the images with my Copics.


Supplies: It's a Loopy Thing - stamps and paper, Upsy Daisy, Copics: B00, B02, R27, R29, T0, T3, E35, E57, Nesties, Square punches, Ribbon, Buttons, Linen thread, Piercer w/mat, Pop dots. Colors: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey, Whisper White.


Have a Happy New Year!

Both of your cards turned out great! I love what you did with the sketch and the combination of papers.

Good luck with the sleep thing. It can be tough with a 2 year old.
