Love You Lots

I have to say that I'm not sure when my life will ever get back to "normal"!  Or perhaps the craziness that is currently my life is my new "normal".  My daughter has gone back to school full-time (although she is taking online courses) and I am now a full-time Nana.  I'm so proud of her for going back to school.  It's so important for her to complete her education so she can provide a good life for her daughter.  That being said, I forgot how much time it takes to look after a newborn!  I mean, really, all they do is eat, sleep and poo, right?  Well, our little love bug is awake more often than not these days, which means Nana does not have a lot of time to herself :) 
 
I do make time to participate in my monthly swap, though!  For July, I decided to use as much new product from the 2016-2017 Idea Book & Catalog as I could.  I really love the Exclusive Host set Love You Lots located on Page 199.  It is so cute and whimsical, which is not usually my style, but I guess I've gotten a little "softer" since the birth of my sweet granddaughter.  I used a Mojo Monday Sketch, but wouldn't you know it, I cannot lay my hands on my printout!  If I find it, which I hope I do, I will update you with the sketch number.  Without further adieu:

Foxy Friends

I have been SO behind on posting.  Today I am sharing the card I made for my monthly swap in June!  I know, I know, it's August!  I'm telling you, this Nana thing takes up ALL my time.  And you know what?  I wouldn't have it any other way.  I am so enjoying my daughter's little girl.  Time is going very fast. 
 
Anyway, on to the card!  I used the super fun Foxy Friends stamp set and the new Dapper Denim 2016-2018 In Color.  It's really hard to pick a favorite.  I really, really love Sweet Sugarplum (because purple is my favorite color), but in all honesty, I love ALL of the new In Colors!  And this stamp set.  Oh my goodness ... so many possibilities!  And how can you go wrong when there is a matching punch?  No fussy cutting for these cute little critters!  Hope you enjoy today's card!

Double Z Fold in Sweet Sugarplum

I am absolutely in love with the new In Color Sweet Sugarplum.  Why wouldn't I be, purple is my favorite color!  I have seen many of this fun fold card that most are calling the Double Z Fold.  I had to give it a go for the swap I participated in in May.  I think this may be my favorite card!  My mom saw it and immediately asked me for it so she could send it to her best friend.  It's always gratifying when someone else loves your work! 
 

 
 
The scallop circle punch is retired but can easily be replaced with one of the scallop circles from the new Layering Circles Framelits (141705).  This is a great bargain at $35.00 since you receive 16 different sizes of circles and scallop circles!
