Sensational Sunday & Monday Inspirations, Catch Up + Candy!

Hi Stampers!

I apologize for being the world's most horrible blogger this week. It has been a little crazy here the last week and there is just not enough hours in the day sometimes! I think we all have those weeks at one point or another! This coming week is also going to be a busy one because my Grandma is having her breast cancer surgery Tuesday and I have to take her up to the hospital that morning. We have to be there at 5am because she is slated to be the first surgery of the day and they will need to do their prep and get her ready.  Here is hoping this go smoothly and well!!

This Sensational Sunday Inspirations Post (even though it is super late and posting early Monday Morning!) will have a few bonus cards...Ceal's from Thursday, and Jacqueline's from Saturday. I am also going to include our amazing project for our Monday Inspirations from Olivia in here too because I am not sure if I will have the chance to post later or not today! And it is now Monday anyway :)

AND...super exciting news!! Ivonne Hernandez will be joining our Design Team as a Regular Designer!! YAY!!! We are so excited to have her back on the team after her Guest Design spot!! She will also be showing her Inspiration projects on our Sunday posts as well!!

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

Copic Markers

I totally love this image it! It is one of my favorites and Athina always does such an amazing job coloring the images that she uses. I adore the little scene with the soft clouds and the grass! The grass looks so amazing! The colors are perfect with the Summer Fresh papers too! I love the sweet country feel of this card! Too cute!!

WOWZERS!! Dangina is the Queen of 3D images! This looks so awesome! She created this for her son's birthday and I think it turned out super cool! This  little character looks like he is a little on the ornery side - LOL! I love how Dangina did his outfit and the colors and details are so amazing - Totally Totally LOVE it!!

Mo Manning Stamps - Skateboard Schoolboy

This is sooooo cute! It is so hard to find images and card styles that fit the older teen boys and this one is perfect! Ivonne did such a great job with her designer paper choices and I LOVE the banner with the age! Super cute idea! Ivonne's coloring is so beautiful! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! So excited to have you back on the team!!!

Magnolia 'Drip Drop Tilda'
Paper Smooches 'A Magical Spring'
Die-namics 'Decorative Doily'
Distress Ink 'Black Soot'
Distress Ink 'Spun Sugar'
Spectrum Noir
CC Ultra Smooth Card

How adorable is this card?!?! Lydia did such a cute job coloring her image to match her papers and the sweet roses that she used! This is such a fun layout and the heart cut out of the center of the doily is awesome!! Such a beautiful job!

What a super cutie patootie! Shanna always does such a gorgeous job coloring her images! I love the simple layout that looks so dressed up and classy with the beautiful accents that she chose! This turned out so super cute!!

My Favorite Things - Pure Innocence Collection - 4 Leaf Clover
Martha Stewart-Leaf punch

I think this is such a sweet card! I love this image and Marcy did such a great job paper piecing her little pants and then coloring her shirt to match! I love the color combo of Kraft and Green and that doily is so pretty! Such an adorable card!!

This is a fun card that would be perfect for the Men on your birthday list! Ceal always does such a great job coming up with Clean and Simple designs that are still interesting to look at and her accents are perfect for the design! Great job!

This is such a super cute, Summery card! I love the fresh, bright colors and that image is sooo cute and Jacqueline's coloring is awesome!! I love Jacqueline's accents with the lace and flower layers! Such a pretty design! 

How adorable! This makes me wish it were Summer! We are in a Winter Weather Advsiory again today! We had freezing rain for about 2 hours yesterday before it changed to snow and it has been snowing since! We are supposed to end up with about 8 inches or so. GAH! I am so ready for Summer! Olivia's did such a great job coloring this cutie up to match her papers! I love those flourish corners too! Olivoa also did a great job with her lay out - I really like the sunburst style circle behind the main panel, so pretty and adds a lot of interest! Such a cute card!

I think ALL of the ladies did such a great job! The projects get cuter and cuter every week! I apologoze again for this being late and for missing a few posts the last few days! I am hoping after this upcoming week things will start settling down a little bit!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to leave a comment so you will be in this week's blog candy drawing!
