Welcome back to Day 2 of Sneak Peek Week!

As you know, we have 
3 fabulous sets debuting this week that we are 
really excited about!!
All 4 x 6 and available on 
April 18th!

The Girl Fridays created some really beautiful cards with our next set
that was designed to celebrate lots of special days for mom...and really anybody!
Presenting...
Mums the Word

How pretty is this simple blue beauty from Girl Friday Dana?
I love the layered stamped panel and the sentiments embossed in white.



And look at this layer-licious beauty!
The postage stamp squares with the stamped and fussy cut flowers are soooo pretty!  I love that she fussy cut some stamped vines from our Casual Elegance set.
Dont' they look scrumptious together??



Girl Friday Kelly has created a beautiful black panel by stacking up the
sentiments and flowers.
What a lovely look and the doily peeking out from behind adds such a soft elegance.

Look at the gorgeous pattern she created by simply stamping all the different sized flowers in soft colors! YUM!  Again, by stacking the sentiments she was able to make a lovely focal point statement.


Soft and simple, this subtle beauty from Girl Friday Laurie
would make anybody smile :)


I love the trendy triangle look and the clever way she used them as panels.
This card could easily be used as a masculine card!


A soft cascade of flowers to delight mom. 
Sweet and serene.


Girl Friday Piali created a really fun look here by stamping the flowers,
then punching them with a circle punch for an altered look.
Love the little button centers!

Here she stamped the flowers into a garden of delight!
Love the way she stacked the sentiments :)



Stitching adds such a wonderful touch to this beautiful card from Girl Friday Karen.
I love her misty water color background with the flowers stamped over.
Beautiful!


Ok, so here is a little secret for you.
There are 2 sentiments used here on this fabulous card.
Girl Friday Lynn was the inspiration for one of them that I think our UK friends will appreciate!
Don't you just love how she stamped on the panel then elevated it?
Delicious!

There are so many lovely pattern papers available.
This is a beautiful example of how you can play with your pretty papers,
and pair them with a wonderful stamped sentiment!



Girl Friday Virginia has stamped a cascade of posies.
What a wonderful pairing with her sweet patterned paper :)


Bold and Beautiful!
I love how Girl Friday Michelle fussy cut the flowers and added some sparkle to the centers.
So easy to do and such a big look!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I craft day and/or night--whenever I have an idea.

    ReplyDelete
  23. What great floral goodness. It depends on the day. Since I work full time M-F, I do crafting after I get home from work, but on the weekends, you will find me in my crafty space usually from 9-1 or 2. If I had a choice, I'd not work (duh) but do my crafting in the mornings, since I'm naturally a morning person. That is when my mind, imagination and mojo are in high gear (helped along by a few cups of coffee).

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh how beautiful! I love these cards and can't wait to see the set! My mojo starts to work while I am having my coffee and throughout the morning as I am doing chores. By lunch time I can hardly wait to get into my crafty place and start working! So I spend as many afternoons as possible in my craft room playing....errr working :D away!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I craft during the day -- specifically at "naptime". I look forward to those couple hours. :)
    Gorgeous cards from the DT!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I DO believe you have the best and most talented design team - wow! All these cards are amazing! Love how many different ways those beautiful flowers can be used!

    I already "like" you on Facebook and my favorite time to play with stamps is late at night, after everyone else in the house has gone to bed - no interruptions! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like crafting in the evening after supper, it seems to be a more relaxed time to be creative.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I usually am the most 'crafty' productive in the evening when distraction are the lowest. I can keep it going pretty late too, I forfeit sleep. LOL All of the card sample from the DT are fantastic. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Gorgeous cards and so much inspiration! I usually craft in the evenings as I seem to have my mojo then.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I craft a lot at night, but have been known to get up really early to work on projects. I guess I am a crafter whenever the inspiration takes hold of me !

    ReplyDelete
  31. I craft whenever the "spirit" gets me going. Sometimes, it's a very short time; however, often after reading my favorite blogs I go into high gear thanks to all the great ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Such pretty cards today!!! I tend to craft late morning/early afternoon....

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sometimes I like to craft in the morning when I'm energetic and fresh, but often I leave it till late at night when other tasks are done for the day. I'm a night owl by nature, so it's nothing for me to stay up till all hours when I get into a groove, to get a card done.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I craft whenever I can (I've been sick a lot lately and not motivated to stamp much) - I seem to have the most energy and mojo during the morning and afternoon when the natural sunlight is bright, though sometimes I sneak in a quickie card when my husband is walking our pup at night too. Lovely cards from your talented team Michele! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  35. For the most part, I'm a night time crafter. But occasionally I can be found in my craft cave mid-day, finishing up something I started the night before! Love all the wonderful inspiration from the DT! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm already a FB follower! Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would craft all day if I could, but my children are awake, so I am a late night crafter because that is when they are asleep. Loving this new set, great sentiments and fonts!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I tend to craft during the day while my boys are at school. My daughter sits next to me and does her own crafting. Love the flowers!

    ReplyDelete
  39. My fav. time to craft is during the day but 99.9% of the time I start only when the kids are asleep. wonderful set today.

    ReplyDelete
  40. love the fact you have 'Mum' in this set! I am an afternoon crafter although I have been known to craft in the wee small hours when I can't sleep!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  42. Fabulous mother's day cards and cards for Mom on other occasions. I think I am a late afternoon/evening crafter. I would like to craft in the morning, but I just feel the need to get all my chores done first!

    ReplyDelete
  43. love these flowers!!! I drat during nap time and their bedtimes hehehe!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Fabulous card! The DT really did a wonderful job. I craft whenever I have a moment, mostly at night, but on weekends during the day (after cleaning). Thanks for the chance.

    Kathleen

  47. I just received my first CAS-ual Fridays stamps (Beanstalks, Elegance & Truth) and they are GORGEOUS! Thanks heavens we have a UK stockist (Make the Day Special) and I nabbed them as soon as they went on sale over the weekend! My best time to craft is mid evening; my husband works 1800 - 0200, so I have 'play time' in my craft shed'. It's been known for him to get home and have to come and eject me from the shed... LOL

    ReplyDelete
  48. This set looks just so fresh and makes me think of the season to come :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I absolutely love all of your stamps, and the creations by your DT are fabulous!! My best crafty time is usually in the evening or anytime I can squeeze some in over the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Mine varies so much, but often times it's first thing in the morning because I sometimes have brilliant (ha ha) ideas during the night.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love, love, love that you have the "Mum" sentiment. girls determine when I craft. Most of the time it's in the evening after they've gone to bed.

    ReplyDelete
  52. fabulous cards, all of them! Love the bright colors and the wonderful sentiments! TFS!

    ReplyDelete
  53. My mojo 'wakes up' after dinner time, so I am a night-time crafter!

    I really love all the pretty cards from the Girl Friday's! So many beautiful flowers and sentiments just in time for Mother's Day...thanks so much for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I definitely liked CAS-ual Fridays on Facebook!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Beautiful cards and inspiration! My favorite time to craft is the evening.

    ReplyDelete
  56. So many pretty cards to look at, what a feast to the eyes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. by necessity i am a nighttime crafter.

    ReplyDelete
  58. These cards are absolutely beautiful. I am in the market for a mother's day stamp and this one will be perfect. It was like you were reading my mind!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Love these beautiful stamps for Mother's Day and just floral goodness! I tend to craft in the early afternoon because I work mornings and have classes at night. :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. These are gorgeous! I create late at night after my Sophie goes to bed.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I am usually a morning crafter but sometimes I get a creative burst in the evening. Love the cards today.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am definitely a night owl. I don't usually craft until late afternoon into the late evening(or after midnight sometimes). :D Love all the cards today, too.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am already a HUGE FB fan! :D

    ReplyDelete
  64. I craft all day on the weekend and occasionally in the evenings if I am not too tired from my day job.

    ReplyDelete
  65. One can never have enough floral stamps so this is a great sneak peek ~ love the DT and their magic. Ideally, I should craft during the day but other things tend to take precedence so that makes me a night-time creator…past my bedtime. Thanks for the chance to win a GC!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I am also a daytime crafter--I need ample daylight to best see what I'm making!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I am a late-nighter, quite often after midnight, I am an RN and work nights, and usually maintain my sleep schedule even when not working.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I get an hour and half between the time I get home from work (around 4pm) till I go ride my exercycle at 5.30pm) then again in the evenings. Just love how much I can get done in that first 1 1/2 hours!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I don't know if it's my "favorite" time, but it's usually my only time. I keep two of my grandkids during the day and also look after my 81 year old dad who lives with us... so I usually don't have a chance to craft until late at night. I'm a night owl, so I guess it works out!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Fabulous cards! Thanks for sharing :)
    I usually craft during evenings or weekends.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Gorgeous cards!!! Oh so many things to be inspired by! I am an "anytime" crafter. I sit down any time I can and it's the best time! I have even stamped until 1 am but my body isn't real happy with me when I do that. Seems like my mojo flows best in the afternoon for some reason.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Another gorgeous set of stamps - so pleased to see that you have MUM and well as MOM! I'm fortunate that I can craft pretty much anytime of the day, but I tend to prefer the mornings! Occasionally, I've even been known to get up in the middle of the night with an idea and make a card!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I do my best work in the afternoon and evening. I would rather work late into the night than early in the day.
    My yorkie is on a different time schedule so I don't often get to work late at night. (Guess you can tell you rules the roost)
    I love the flower stamps.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Just went and "liked" you on FB. Glad I found you and your wonderful stamps.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I am a Facebook fan already. And I a real life fan too!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I am at my craftiest first thing in the morning. Sunday is my only day off from work and I actually set my alarm to be up before my family so I can craft in peace. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  77. gorgeous flowers!
    i am a late afternoon/early evening crafter. and weekends.

    ReplyDelete
  78. My favorite time is on the weekend mornings, between 8 and 10. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Another great set--love all the gorgeous samples! I'm retired and can craft any time but usually feel.my.most creative at night!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Beautiful images and fabulous samples by the DT!!! I am most definitely a late night crafter!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Such great samples. My favorite stamping time? Mostly in the morning, which then continues into the afternoon... oh, and let's keep going into the evening. Hey, I just LOVE to stamp anytime, especially when I can dedicate a whole day to it (which is rare!).

I love hearing from you!!
