Have A Super Day!


Happy Monday, sweet friends!!


Sorry for being MIA lately – I don’t know what’s happening with my life, but I seem to constantly be playing catch-up.  I’m behind in my blog reader by over 2,000 posts, and that stresses me out like nobody’s business.  How do you keep your head above water? I’d love any and all suggestions, because right now, I’m just not cutting it.  Any ideas?!


Karolyn - Super


Thought I’d pop in quickly to share one of the samples that I created for the Paper Smooches July New Release!  This one features the new set called Super.  It’s loaded with some trendy and fun super hero images and sentiments that really apply to all occasions!  I created the colorful buildings using an EK Success Plaid Border Punch that I had in my stash.  Once I trimmed them out, they totally reminded me of big tall city buildings – right?!  The flying super hero and the sentiment are from the Super set, and the street is from the Metropolis set.


Oh, and did I mention to you that Paper Smooches is now one of the newest Member Companies over at Splitcoast Stampers?  It’s such a fun place to hang out and is loaded with great inspiration and fun stamp talk.  You should totally click on through to check it out!  You can find the Paper Smooches Splitcoast Forum HERE.  Be sure to stop by and say hello!!


That’s it for me today, friends.  I need to get a bit of crafting done before my youngest grandson comes to stay for a few days.  Can’t wait to get some Gamma cuddles in soon!!  Have a great day, and thanks so much for stopping by today!

I hear you, Karolyn! I spent the last 6 months being way behind in my blog reader, and forget about comments! I think we all go through this, but it's hard when you're slightly OCD and can't possibly just click "mark all as read". I just buzz through the posts when I can and hope that everyone forgives me for very sporadic comments. :)
As for your card, I'm thinking we'd all be happier if buildings were as colorful as yours! I love how you grounded them with the stamped road.
I hope things slow down for you soon!
