Hello? Anybody still here? It's been forever since I've stopped in or done anything social media related. Shame on me! But I won't pretend it hasn't been a relief - blogging, facebooking, instagraming, etc. I barely have time for creating these days and I certainly don't want to spend those few spare moments online, kwim?

But I am here today to share the challenge Liz and I prepared for this week on the Pink by Design blog - Geometric. It's been a big trend for a while now but really the basic shapes never go out of style :) Whether you like circles, triangles, hexagons or squares, link up for a chance at $10 to spend in the PBD store.

I had fun playing with tangrams for this card and used the Lucky half pint stamp set.

And this circle one using the Spectacular set. I went a little inky and embossed the glasses in a masked circle then shaded with the Sweet Sixteen Colorbox Pigment Ink Queue. The glasses die cut was embellished with some Smooch accent ink. I might even be warming up to the color purple :)

 And finally a birthday mini book with the Love With You Is half pint stamp set. I layered lots of scrap paper squares to get a fun mix of prints on the cover piece and then repeated stamped the sentiments from this set on the larger cover paper for a subtle design. Inside are patterned paper sheets, tabbed pages and journaling paper for adding notes. 

You can find the post to link up your take on the Geometric trend here.

Paper Issues is celebrating owner and paper slinger extraordinaire Cassie's birthday all this week! Check us out on Facebook - she is giving away over 25 prizes! Woot!! Also stop by the PI blog for the new theme sponsored by Elle's Studio.

Clearsnap just announced their mid season releases in the last weeks - new colors of Smooch Accent Ink as well as the new pigment ink colors in Cat's Eye form. Lots of good stuff! Check them all out here.

My baby bunny is now 7 months old. He is working so hard on getting mobile but every time he tries to crawl he goes backwards. It's pretty cute but he gets so frustrated! Starting to pull himself up and working on the 2 front teeth as well. Add in the separation anxiety phase and we have a baby who does not want to nap or sleep at night. That leaves one tired mama!

The big kids are getting excited for summer and I am too! See you again in a few weeks maybe :)

Funny story about your baby bunny. So precious to watch as they learn how to work their bodies. Love the eyeglasses...I predict they will be increasing in popularity!

I'm lost I think - Looking for your post on the Clearsnap NSD blog hop but I'm not seeing it? I noticed comments are from today, but your last post is showing from 4/26?
