Round and Round We Go!

Happy Monday everyone!!

Our deck steps are finished!!!! Yay!!! It has only been four years but I finally have steps off the gazebo! So, so excited. I got them power washed yesterday and as soon as they dry off, I can stain them. It is nice to be able to walk down into the side yard without worrying about falling down. Just in time to move!

Izzy had a great time with her grandparents this weekend. I think she made her grandma hoarse having her read all those books. Izzy loved it though. She snuggled into grandma's lap and listened for what seemed like hours. Too fun. I know she was sad to see them go, but we should be seeing them soon so hopefully she won't have to wait too long!

Well it is day two of our sneak peeks at Little Paper Shop, all leading up to tomorrow's big release day! Today we have a most adorable little stamp that would be perfect for invitations, decorating a girl's room or for birthday cards. I would like to introduce you to {Katie Carousel}! And since today is Sketch Monday, I decided to incorporate this week's sketch challenge into my card.


Isn't she adorable riding on the carousel! I just love the little horses too, so sweet. I always wanted my own private carousel and now I have one, even if it is in stamp form. LOL! Anywhoo, I started my card by first stamping {Katie Carousel} by Little Paper Shop on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. Following this week's sketch, I layered on purple and green card stock along with paper from Basic Grey. I stamped the sentiment from {Angelic Jena} on white card stock and placed it on top of a ribbon tag I punched out of purple using my nesties. I finished the card off by adding three buttons to the corner and tying on my tag with some white ribbon.

Would you like to win this set? There are TWO ways to WIN {Katie Carousel}! LEAVE A COMMENT on the LPS Blog and one random winner will be announced tomorrow. Another random winner will be chosen to win who participates in this week's challenge, so be sure to leave a comment on the LPS Blog telling us you've played along! This week's keyword is LPSC29 :)
