Mosaic Sneek Peak

Happy Tuesday!

All of us Canadian Demonstrators has Monday off so Tuesday is the new Monday around here *lol*  It's been a while since I posted ... but that's not because I haven't been crafting ... I've simply been mass-producing what I HAVE crafted!  Over the last week or so I finished off 2o of my Vellum Swallowtail Butterfly cards for a fundraiser, I made 60 of the baby Thank You cards for Mamma Sara and wee Brock and now I'm working on 25 of today's card.  I FINALLY got to spend an hour with my new toys from the catalogue that is due to be released May 31st!  It took me a while to get my mojo in order but I managed it in the end.  One of my new favorite sets is called Mosaic Madness.  Have you noticed mosaic patterns EVERYwhere lately??  I have!  ... and I've also noticed the new colors that are all over the soft furnishings - they are soft colors and SO pretty ... so ... naturally I paired the two (the pattern and the colors) and came up with this:
Love it!  I can't get enough of this pattern!  Lucky for me Stampin' Up! is all over it and has provided all kinds of toys that coordinate beautifully!  For this card I used the new Mosaic Madness stamp set, punch and embossing folder.  I also used the (5) new In Color colors ... Baked Brown Sugar (yummy!), Coastal Cabana (I just bought Alicia a pair of SHOES in this color!!), Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush ... seriously ... these colors are EVERYWHERE in! the stores!!  The sentiment is from Lacy & Lovely (thank goodness THIS one isn't retiring!!) stamped in Staz-on Black ink.  This is a very quick and easy card ... good thing, since I just cracked off 25 of them!

No time for crafting today ... I have to do my 100 squats (yes, my latest 30 day challenge ... I started last Monday with 50 ... every day you do 5 more ... by the end I will be doing 250!!!), walk the dog and then I'm off to get my hair cut and colored ... then it's swimming lessons and dinner.  Hopefully tomorrow I will get a chance to play a little more.  Until then ... have a stampy Tuesday :)



  1. Love the card! I think this is going to be one of my favs from the new catty too plus I am pumped about the new in colours! :) ah sqauts... I am also doing the 30 day challenge! I'm on day 17, so that's 150 sqauts tonight!! Goody *lol* athough my rear is lookin great! *LOL*

    1. No way!! A fellow squatter! Good for you! Today is day 15 for me so I *only* had 140 to do. Thank goodness tomorrow is a "rest" day!! Sadly my rear is still the width of a small truck ... But I'm working on it! I'm off to play with my new stamp set now :)))
      Have a stampy day :)

  2. love this card. Case'd it for my catalog launch. It is a great use of all the in colors. I relate so much to your posts, the squirrel references fit me well! Posted my sample to my blog and linked back to you.
