{Special Post} STAMPlorations at Less Is More + Introducing the Bloomtangled Cover Plate Dies!

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! I'm popping by to share a couple of quick cards I made featuring two of our brand-spankin' new and awesome Bloomtangled cover plate dies for the current challenge over at Less Is More, where STAMPlorations is the sponsor for the month of March! For the next couple of weeks, it's a color challenge: MONOCHROME!


When I say quick...I really mean quick! With a 2-month-old and a 2-year-old around, I hardly have time to craft. (It has been months since I made anything; in fact, I didn't get to make and send out (late) Christmas cards at all last year!) 

With the Bloomtangled cover plate dies, however, I managed to make not one but two cards in between feeding the Kat her supper and holding little Winter in my arms. Well, I had to put Winter down in her bassinet and pick her up whenever she started to fuss ;o) And it helped that it's a clean and simple challenge so I didn't need to overthink my cards!

So here are the cards up close. 

I thought the sentiments on both were apropos. I don't know about you, but having two little ones and being responsible for them scares me. Every. Single. Day. But every day, I try to not let my fears stop me from being the best mother to my beautiful girls. And it is only through the Lord's mercy and amazing grace that I'm able to continue looking after them.

Anyhow, my cards are pretty simple, but wait until you see the ones that the STAMPlorations girls made featuring these cover plate dies! Yep, stay tuned on Wednesday!

Many thanks to Sarah and the LIM design team for having me and STAMPlorations this month, and especially for creating awesome cards using our products! Please head on over to the challenge blog and play :o)
