Getting Inky

My stamping world is a little turned upside down at the moment. As you know, I live for nap time, it's my time to stamp. Well, what happens when nap time is no more? Ummmm, I don't get a lot done. For almost 7 years ( well at least the last two I've been religiously stamping almost everyday) I have used this two hour, almost completely uninterrupted time to be creative. Nicholas has almost stopped napping completely this last week! WHAT?! How can this be? He only just turned 2, my other two didn't give up naps until they were almost 4! I'm a little upset about this, but will find something that works for us. If you have any suggestions, bring 'em on! Here are the two quick cards I did yesterday. I got my Unity March KOTM, Simple Life, a bit inky! This silhouette floral image is one of my favorites from the kit (the whole kit is amazing!). I used the Wed. Unity addicts challenge for this first one. We were to use the colors-turquoise, orange, pink, and brown. I almost pulled out some retired Bali Breeze dsp, but decided on some Pink Flamingo (SU) and Offbeat (Basic Grey). The second one was even quicker. Happy Thursday! Hugs, Lisa

  2. Oh no, he can't give up naps yet! I hope for your sake it's only a phase. Adam had spurts of no nap-taking, but they only lasted a couple days. He's feeling better, but still has a nasty cold which he has passed on to me, of course. Thanks for asking!

    The flower stamped on the dp is fabulous, and I love the kraft/tangerine combo on the other one, so beautiful!

  7. Beautiful cards!!!!!! My daughter just gave it up too... BUT we still do quiet time (at least an hour for my sanity). She can play quietly in her room or watch a movie in her room . It has worked ok for us so far!
