My card features the Tick Tock stamp set. This set is so much fun and covers the gamut from friendship and thank you to love and parties!! Yup, it does all that. Plus, the images are perfect for colouring, either with solid stamp images like I did here, or with your choice of colouring medium! The frame for the sentiment was made with the centre of the Duo Die 1 and Ovals 1 dies.


When I saw this wristwatch, I knew I had to create some Swatches. Growing up, I had several of these. They were just so cool. ;) For those who love to colour, you could do it the traditional way and if you don't, well, the great news is that you don't have to! I used Memento Luxe inks to fill in the bands. Check it out here:



Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are one of the lucky winners!
