Good Day to you lil Sweets! Ahhh, how I love Thursdays - It's my favorite night on TV - it's practically Friday - and it just kinda feels GOOD, right?!

Well - to make today even BETTER ... we've got a special lady on the blog sharing her amazingly creative cards with us -

Let's dive right in!

Meet Laura Williams!


 Here is a little about Laura in her own words. 

Hi! My name is Laura Williams, and  I'm excited to spend some time here at Sweet Stamp Shop!  I love polka-dots, graphic patterns, and anything black and white (especially with a pop of bright color!)  I started stamping as a teenager, and I've had inky fingers ever since. I'm a mom of two boys, and wife to an incredibly patient and fun-loving husband (who wins big points for putting up with my paper-crafting messes!)  You can find my blog at www.lauralooloo.blogspot.com.

Laura just has a special knack for making the most unique cards using a combination of stamp sets (often times, I see her cards and I hit my forehead thinking, WHY didn't I think of that!?!? - Genius!!)


 I love the texture she got with this stamp - Just amazing... it looks like the stamp is in reverse... but, all she did was stamp the burlap background with black in on a brown sheet of paper - cut it out and adhere it... created a really awesome look, didn't it!?!



 Ok - this card blew my mind - truly! Here's why... It's simple, but so well put together! What I really LOVE about this card is ANYONE can take a glance at this and recreate it .... and have an AMAZING card! It's beautiful AND doable! I love that! Laura, she's just so darn good! (you can tell I have a design crush on Laura!)



 Loving the color combination - red and black... so classic. I especially like the gems... but, I'm a bit of a glitter girl so anything sparkly is right up my alley!




How fun is this card? She used just the arrow in the 'View Finder' set to create the coolest background.Wowie! How many little 'extra' stamps that you have would make great backgrounds... wheels are turning!

Lastly - this card is just so C-U-T-E



 Yep - she grabbed the 'Gnomies' set and made the cutest holiday card (or it doesn't HAVE to be holiday... but, I think it works!) I didn't even think of the banner stamp as a 'North Pole' sort of stamp ---- See, Laura is genius!



We can't say enough about Laura (and she's like the sweetest little gal too!) --- Please take a moment and say hello to Laura on her blog HERE.

We'll see you back here tomorrow with another guest designer - and she's just as SWEET as Laura, promise!

Happy Thursday!
N.

-- And, for those of you addicted to Vampire Diaries (like my husband and I) --- Happy Vampire Diaries night!! Hooray!! --- I also really like Person of Interest and Scandal... and Grey's too! lol ... you see that my DVR works over time on Thursdays!
