Chocolate & Playtime

I was finally able to do some stamping tonight! Hurray! I worked on a swap card that probably should've been sent already, but Lucy's escapades in my stamproom had sent my creativity into hiding (and my embossing powder into the carpet!). I had to rethink what I knew I wanted to do with this set, but I'm pretty happy with the result:

I used just Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip for the colors (no matter what the picture may depict). I used the Bella Rose paper for the polka dotted piece & sponged like a madwoman with my Chocolate Chip. I love all the ideas I see layering punches, so I layered the large oval punch over the 1 3/8" circle and the scallop circle punch. I just love the Bella Blossoms set!

Now for the playtime part of the post. We spent a little over three hours today at a park in Benicia because I needed to break up our time together a bit after battling a stubborn three-year old all day yesterday. The kids played and played and played! They had so much fun & were busy for the whole time...Lucy, of course, "wasn't sleepy" for her nap after all that playing. Yeah, right!

Here she is, passed out on the couch while studying the back of the new movie that her daddy had brought home for her tonight. She slept like this for nearly an hour! Hilarious!

She is so cute when she's asleep, huh? Ha! She's cute all of the time...she just argues less in her sleep! :O)

I really like this card! I've decided I'm all about monochromatic themes lately b/c it forces me to stay simple, and I'm hoping it will allow me get more actual stamping in.
