Sunday Stamping: Out of the Doldrums

I've been in a dry spell for the past week or so. I'm sure it was a combination of upheaval in my upstairs and stamp room and some things going on in the family, but today was my day! And, I think I unblocked myself. I've made 6 cards today...you'll see the others this week coming up! It's good to just go with it when you have the right ideas in your head, so I did!! Meredith has either been stamping and coloring with me or with her daddy at the pool. Thank goodness he knew I needed the "time" to create!

Also, I finally inked up my first Kraftin' Kimmie stamp...I've had them for over 2 months, but this is the first time I used them. And, can I just say, that the Angry Ballerina cracks me up! I'd be upset if I had to dress up in a pig costume, too!

The first card is for two challenges:
The second card is also from a stamp set that hasn't seen ink, but it's been almost a year since I bought this one. This particular image reminded me so much of my daughter and making brownies that I had to buy it!! The image is from Crafty Secrets.

The second card is for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge #71 found HERE. It was fun, and it of course made me hungry!!
Thanks for stopping by today!! I really appreciate your visit!
