Update Tuesday - April 7, 2020


It's time for Update Tuesday!  I appreciate you stopping by my blog to see what Stampin' UP!® has emailed us for inspiration this week!  I as so excited when I saw these projects.  I love the anticipation on Tuesday mornings when I open my emails to find my Succeed Weekly from 
Stampin' UP!®.  It is always fun to start the day with a new project.

Here is the photo that they shared with us this morning.

What do you think?which project is your favorite?  Here is what Stampin' UP!
had to say about these cuties!
"We have three cards to share today, and each one features a unique tip that you can add to your papercrafting repertoire. 
If you’d like a card with simple lines and a subtle touch of color, try the markering technique featured on the Happy Easter card. Simply use Stampin’ Write Markers to color directly on the rubber. This gives you perfect control over the depth of color in your stamped image; it also lets you easily incorporate more than one color for a clean, sophisticated look. 
Go bold with Melon Mambo and Pool Party, as we did with our Sweet Friend card. Pro tip: Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper isn’t just for birthdays! We love how it makes the Melon Mambo Cardstock pop. 
The adorable You Brighten My Day card features the Distinktive Full of Happiness Stamp Set. The varying rubber densities give your image depth and complexity, making it super fun to stamp with."

I have one of the three stamp sets that were used above and it has the little lamb in it.  So for obvious reasons, that is the card I chose to make today.  And it is adorable!

I don't want to toot my own horn but, toot toot!  LOL.  I think it turned out quite lovely.  

I absolutely love this lamb.  He is such a charming little fellow.

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!
