Here is a fun birthday card I made for one of my BFF's...
Love this stamp. I embossed it and then used Tim Holtz's milled lavender distress ink. I used to the gooey goo edge punch from Martha Stewart. Some perfect pearls on the picture. I stamped the Popsicles and used liquid glass on them. A few dollarama dew drops and ribbon from Micheal's. Cut the hat out added a pompom and some stickles of course...I stamped Happy joyful birthday all around in dark blue. My BFF's middle name is Joy so it is always important to get that word in her cards somewhere...drives her crazy...lol...what are friends for I say....thanks for looking...

I love these stamps....I have been thinking about my first card using them for awhile. These are from Hero arts and are wooden block stamps. I used stamps from the Chinese Dolls clear set for the background. I used chalks for the background, Twinkling H2O's for the boy and girl. The shimmer of the twinkling H2O's sadly does not show up in the picture. A new EK Success punch for the ladybugs, Martha Stewart punch for the butterflies and border. I embossed the stampin up Happy Joyful Birthday. I made the paper lanterns by using zigzag scissors and then used perfect pearls. Some stickles for glitter of course and some origami paper I had...thanks for stopping by.

This is the last of the 4 images I stamped. I like this one a lot. I find it to be very vibrant, sweet, and just waiting to go to a nice Mom....If no one buys this one I will be letting my son give it to his Father's Mother. Thanks for your patience and for stopping by while I got this stamp out of my system well for a little while any ways..
I sold a few at work not intentionally so I thought why not post them at my desk and see if I can make a few scrappy dollars...."don't know what you don't know " a man on the street once told me and well, he is right!....its been a busy weekend these cards were done over the course of the weekend. We have sunshine, annoying wind, and so much dust blowing around outside you need a shower after a two minute walk...sheesh! any how thanks for coming to see my cards and lets hope I sell some if not well I guess I'm set for a few years with Mother's Day cards.
