Love what you do...do what you love...


That phrase "Love what you do...do what you love" has been in my head for several days.  I'm not really sure why, but it makes me think I am very blessed.  I love my job and I love my crafty hobby and I get to do both pretty often.  What do you get to do that you love?  

One thing I really, really love is layering stamps.  My oh my, I LOVE layering stamps.  My card today features two new stamp sets from The Craft's Meow.  These will be getting lots of ink time from me (in fact this week I'm sure you'll see several more)!  The card has already been popped in the mail to a good friend's daughter who graduates next weekend.  Love how the ColourQ combo came together for this.  Yet again another color combo that I would have never considered on my own, but the end result is great!

Take care!  Hope you have a fabulous Sunday!

PS I may have that phrase backwards..not sure...but I don't think it really matters :)!

When it comes to layering stamps to perfection, I think of you! You've completely rocked those TCM stamps, Lynn!

Please excuse me for a moment while I go and squeal, I wouldn't want to do that in your ear.

Ok, I'm back here to say what an amazing card this is. You are the queen at layering stamps and making them into one cohesive design. I cannot get over how well you've made those sets work together!
