NAC30 and RS47

DSCF2442

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Yesterday was the start of SU’s Sale-a-bration promotion…always a fun time in the stamping world! I used one of the free sets, Bloomin’ Marvelous, to make a quick card!  I used the Nacho Average Challenge colors for this week:

Nac30

as well as the RetroSketches sketch:

to make this:

The card base is Very Vanilla; paper is from the mini….Print Poetry; all the images and sentiments are from Bloomin’ Marvelous; and the button is also part of the SAB freebie promotion!  Easy peasy!

Cassidy is nearing the age of potty training.  She knows when she is about to “go” because she usually heads for a corner somewhere.  When I found her in the stairway and I confronted her about going on the potty (and getting a special little treat), this is the look I got:

Obviously, she wasn’t having any parts of it!  Well, we’ll keep working on it!!!

Beautiful! I love the flowers and the hummingbird - such a great way to use all of the colors, LeAnne. Perfect card for a cold winter's day - gives us all a reminder of what spring is like. ;)

Hope the potty training goes well!

The perfect combination of colors, sketch and stamps!! It IS a happy day!!

Marisa said...

Love the way you used the sketch and the colours. Great card.

As per the potty training, I used the Potty Training in a Day book with both my kids and they were both done in a day!! Honestly! Best book ever and the system works like a charm.

Those colours are beautiful and so is your card LeAnne. That hummingbird is divine. I had a child that hid in the corner too. That look I know, back off sista! LOL

Gorgeous colors and I always love when your stamping takes center stage! So pretty!

A very pretty card. I'm a flower person and I like cards that are simple but appear to have some detail to them-you did it! TFS-

Linda said...

Oh my goodness that is a "look" So sweet. You can tell those wheels are turning. LOL
Beautiful card! Love the humming bird. Very Pretty colors.

Absolutely darling card. Love the new products, and I'm having so much fun playing with mine.
Potty training 101. I did it with M&M's for all my kids and daycare.
2 if you Pooh, 3 if you pee, and one for giving it a try. Kept the jar of M&Ms on shelf in bathroom for years!!

Oh My Gosh! Cassidy's expression is priceless!!! LOL I've seen that look many times too :) I love the little thumb- to-finger action she has going on too :)
I love how your card turned out, and that's a fun sketch to work with too!

Jen said...

This is starting to be one of my favorite color combos! Love the arrangement of flowers around the pretty DSP.

Sweet sweet card LeAnne ~ Cassidy and Austin are both in the SAME frame of mind ~ oh I get 'the look' too LOL ~ enjoy your day my friend *hugs*

Darlene Gabriel said...

Oh my...that look says it all. But look at those eyes;) Good luck with the training.
I love this card LeAnne. Beautiful colours and paper and these images are really tempting me.

Beautiful card! Bless her heart, hopefully Cassidy will not go back into your archives when she gets older.lol. My daughter used to go hiding too. If I found her behind the recliner with almost that same look, I knew just what was going on, even when she denied it. :) Thanks for sharing your beautiful card. Hope you don't mind be case'd.

Kara said...

gorgeous colors!! i LOVE hummingbirds!

Bonnie said...

Isn't this the greatest little set? I love the colors you've used and the layout! And you've perfectly placed the hummingbird! I dread having to go through the potty training with Jack and getting rid of that pacifier (which should be long gone by now).

Sharon said...

LeAnne, what a gorgeous card! I love the pattern paper you selected. It really mimics the flowers you stamped. And the hummingbird adds a nice contrast!
thank you for playing along with us @ NAC.
