Three Sneaks & A Tiny Giveaway

The day after my last blog post, my boxes arrived. Yes, both of them. Joyland and Granny's Cupboard. Double happiness. Truly.

Then. .

Neha got sick. Really sick. Can't-keep-anything-inside-her-sick. We were at the ER, twice in three days. Not fun. I consider myself very very lucky, because Mr.Husband was around. It seems easier that one parent can keep Nidhi company while another stays with Neha. On the 2nd visit to the ER, they wanted to keep her overnight for observation. So she stayed, and Mr Husband had to leave for Barcelona, but she, slowly got better from that point onwards. Thank you, God.

Now let's move on to prettier stuff :) Three sneaks.

I used Sunflower Yellow Mist, Fern Green Mist, Silver Plated Mist, and Coffee Stain Stamp for what you can see here. The silver plated mist rocks my world, btw.

Happy - stamped Storytime alphabets. You can also see a teeny peek of the yummy Open Scallop Border and the fabulous Large Monarch Butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.

Here, I used some Hydrangea Blue and Lemon Mist, and also put my new Zig Zag Chain punch to good use. I am loving all the new EK Success Punches SC has in store. Love. They're stackable, they're slim and hardy at the same time. Love. Did I say love? :)


Now the giveaway. I have an extra set of the Coffee Stain Stamp here. Do you like it? Yes? Just leave me a comment (on my blog, not on facebook) with an answer to this question.

If you could have one thing from the Studio Calico shop, what would that be? One item your heart desires.

Mr.Husband has gone for his marathon training with his friends, I'm gonna make breakfast for our dinner now. The girls love breakfast for dinner. Bread, chicken ham and scrambled eggs are perfect for anytime of the day I say.

That is such a cool stamp- I love it! And I love the sneaks- can't wait to see more!

papirdiva said...

I've already got the coffee stain stamp, but the SC-shop has so many things I want! At the moment, it's got to be the full Anthology collection. Can't wait for reveal so that I can order it without payin for shipping! ;)

Brenda Weaver said...

Just one thing??? You know it's impossible for me to just pick one thing, right? But I'd love to have the coffee stain stamp. I've been eying some of the SC stamps for a while. I may have to sneak a few into my order on sneak night.
The sneaks look fabulous. I love how you share what you used on each one. I wouldn't have noticed a lot of those items otherwise.
I'm glad your little girl is all better. Having a sick kids is no fun at all!

cannycrafter said...

Oh That is a stamp I have been wanting for a while! I am waiting for the month stamps I have finally ordered that have been on my wish list until I could afford them! Would love to see some day of the week stamps to match!
Love those sneaks! Now I need to go check more punches! Glad your girl is feeling better!

Lynn Ghahary said...

Awesome sneaks girl and what a fun giveaway! That is one stamp that I do not own from SC. One thing I'd love from the shop? Definitely another punch or two or three or ... you get the idea! LOL! And can I just add that we had breakfast for dinner last night as well. We do it every Wednesday since my boys (well, and me too) are huge breakfast lovers. Last night it was pancakes and bacon. YUM!

Amy Coose said...

Amazing, amazing sneaks, Sasha! I am so glad sweet Neha is feeling better. It's so hard when your babies are sick. I already have the gorgeous stamp, so you don't have to enter me into the giveaway, I just wanted to say HI!!

naomi_m said...

Oh I love that stamp, now... just one thing... I think it would be the arch scallop border punch.

♥ Audrey ♥ said...

Now that I've seen the zigzag punch in use, I want that one!!!

rhonda nickol said...

I would love to own the retired GO SEE DO stamp I am on the lookput for it! I would really like the tree stamp! I am fairly new to Studio Calico!

jeanie nieva said...

Jennifer B. said...

Ooooh, I don't have that stamp yet, but have been eyeing it for some time. I'd love to get the bracket border punch or the Cosmo Cricket Core paper. Thanks!

Anna Sigga said...

Love the sneaks and you are one fab punching enabler girl!!!! ;o)

Frances said...

Lovin' those sneaks lady! And I love this stamp...neat. I would say that I want the large Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

Ursula said...

So glad you finally got your stuff. I've been checking every so often for your sneaks and something from Joyland. But sorry your sweetie was sooo sick. that's terrible.

I do like that coffee ring stamp, very cool.

If I could have one thing, right now I think it would be the large twinkle star punch. I've been coveting that little girl.

Lean said...

I hope your sweet girl is alright now.Love your sneaks.
bye bye,Lean.

penny said...

Probably the XL Seal of Approval punch, which is sold out! But I've also had my eye on the coffee stain stamp for months and just didn't add it to my cart. Would love it, though!

ZoezMom said...

I love the double embossed dotted lace border punch. Last month when I put it in my cart during reveal, it slipped away from me and I'm hoping to pop it in the cart this month!

Kim said...

I want their Anthology & Homefront Collections...I love their stamps.
They just make me happy!

Keshka said...

SO glad your daughter is doing wel! Love the coffee stain stamp, I don't have it. I would love the crown edger punch--I've been wanting it for ages, but can't bring myself to pay the $25!

lisa dickinson said...

oooh those sneaks are lovely. and silver plate mist??? going on my wish list now. you enabler, you! ;P

lillianchild said...

I flow with the "punches" - I just can't have enough of them in my creative cache! And this coffee stain stamp - oh my - makes me think outside the box! Would LOVE to have it for my very own. So very glad that your little one is on the mend - it's so darn scary when little ones are so ill. And kudos to you for having one fabulous hubby!

milkcan said...

I'm always so happy when a new post from you shows up in my Google Reader! Great sneaks and I *need* to buy more Maya Mist and some AC binders this month! Mwah!

Danielle said...

What ONE thing would I want from the SC shop?! That's impossible to choose only one thing, but since there's about a ton of the punches and mists that I want, I'll just say that one of my fav's is the large monarch butterfly punch. Love it. and a lot more, but that's my one thing...

Melonie said...

Totally loving your sneaks. you are amazing:) After seeing your work I'm thinking I need some border punches. Would you believe the only punch I own is a circle punch? Crazy.
SOOOOO glad Neha is home and on the mend.

Elena said...

For me it would be the Noah Alphabet stamp.

Kristen said...

Um...one thing? oh gosh...how about the latest kit? :)
