I stamped today!

Yay! I had so much fun stamping with my friend Victoria today! I met Victoria at the A Muse shop awhile back and we hit it off immediately. She's a complete sweetheart and has such a positive outlook on life that's very refreshing.

To give our stamp time some direction we decided to work on some of the A Muse Addicts' Weekly challenges. This first one is for Jennie's weekly challenge, to make a card that celebrates something. I'm celebrating life, and what better way to celebrate life than with a glass of wine and some stinky cheese, huh?? :D Of course, add a good friend or significant other and it's perfect!!

Stamps: Wine and Cheese, Life is Good, Mini Oval
Inks: Palette Hybrid Burnt Umber, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Copics, Clear Spica Glitter pen
Papers: A Muse French Roast, Hawthorne, Tinplate PLP, White
Accessories: Marvy Giga Scallop Rectangle, Home and More ribbon (Michaels ?), dimensionals

The stamp of the week challenge this week is to use the Sushi Clear Set by A Muse, or the Robot Kid. I did one of each.

Stamps: Sushi Clear Set
Inks: Palette Hybrid Noir, Garden Green, Koh-i-noor and Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, Clear Spica Glitter Pen

Very cute cards! I love the colors you used for the wine and cheese card. I love the robot kid card the best! I love that he's hovering over Mars. Too cute!

I love all three cards but think my favorite is the middle one. Maybe it is because I love the color purple and pairing it with greeen goes well. The coloring is great on all of them!
