Hi Stampers!

Hope you all have had a wonderful, relaxing & stampy filled weekend! I think the perfect way to spend a Sunday Morning is to grab a cup of coffee, tea or whatever your wake up beverage might be (wow, I am a poet - who knew - LOL) and feast your eyes on some beautiful designs from the Design Team!

Now on to today's blast of inspiration from our talented Design Team! Here we go....

Olivia Marmara
YAY! I am always excited when Olivia gets to join us on Sundays too :) This is sooo pretty! I love the rich colors of the papers and Olivia colored her image perfectly to match! One thing that I love about the Simple Stories papers is they have some built in page elements that you can use to decorate with that match the papers perfectly. Like in this case the little acorn tag and the fishtail behind the image panel. Olivia did an awesome job using these elements in her card! I LOVE that flower too - just beautiful! Awesome job Olivia!!

Athina Emory
Simple Stories - 6x6 Paper Pack Handmade Holiday

Athina used one of my favorite snowlady stamps! She did an amazing job coloring this to match those gorgeous papers! I love the regal, rich tones of the greens and dark reds paired with the neutral browns. Such a cute, country feel! That snow glitter is so pretty! I love the doily and button accents too! Perfect for this style card! Absolutely adore this one!! ♥

Lydia Walker
My Mind's Eye Stamps - Be Amazing

Now this is such a beautiful scrapbook page! I think it is even more beautiful because it features a picture of our very own Design Team Member.... LYDIA!! This is such a gorgeous lay out and I love all the flowers and accents that Lydia added! How cool is that name tag?!?! I love how Lydia used the stamps to create interest in the background too and the colors are so pretty!! Lydia creates the most stunning pages! I swear that one of these days I will send her some of my photos to scrap - LOL! Do you think she would notice if I sent her 20 + years of pictures - hee hee!

Also...After you are done leaving your comment...visit Lydia's Blog ... she is giving away an amazing candy prize too!!

Shanna Shands
Copic Markers

This is such an adorable card! I love the layout and the colors that Shanna chose! Those two large hearts are really cool looking! I love the Bonnie Tilda images - their little tushies are so cute - LOL!
I love how Shanna used the image so that it looks like the little cupid is flying rather than standing up too. Awesome job!
Dangina Martinez

HOLY SPARKLES!! This is beautiful! I am loving that glitter paper :) C.C Designs has some of the cutest images and Dangina colors them up so perfect that you just can't help but love them :) Check out that gorgeous hair! I wish Dangina lived closer to me so she could teach me how to color - LOL! Check out the sparkles in her pig tails and barrette too...♥  Sooooo cute!! Speaking of cute...Dangina just became a proud Grandma to the most precious little baby girl! Congratulations again Dangina!! Check out some pictures on Dangina's blog!

Marcy Dangcil
I love this image! No matter how old you get there are some days that you just feel like doing this - LOL! The colors are so pretty and I love all the flowers and pearl bling that Marcy added! Marcy also does amazing at coloring her images! This looks amazing!

What another week of gorgeous projects from the Design Team! At least now I won't have to take my socks off for bed because they blew them off my feet already - LOL! Can you tell that it is my bedtime and that I am tired because I am starting to get silly :)
Thanks for starting your Sunday out with us! I hope the team inspired you to get some stamping done :) Be sure and leave a comment so you are in this week's drawing!

Happy Stampin!
