Happy Monday


GOOD DAY MY FRIENDS!!!!!



I don't know about you, but me personally... glad to see Monday! I did have a good weekend and yesterday spent about 12 hours in my stamp room. Russ took the kids out yesterday afternoon and I really had the chance to catch up on some work. I stamped so many cards yesterday and it felt GOOD!!!! I have a craft show coming up in early May and really need to stamp away. I thought I would share a few cards that I have made. I am also working on some cards for a customer. Yeah!!



The first card is a little mish mosh. You know, a little of this and a bit of that. I used chocolate chip cardstock and the Magnolia paper from Wild Aspargus (i think) Regardless of the name... it is just PRETTY!!! I used my Jumbo Rough Wheel on the Whisper white Cardstock. I stamped the flourish over it from Autumn Leaves in the colorbox chalk ink. I stamped Birthdays are the Best in Choc Chip Craft ink and then embossed over it in Clear EP. Next, I used a little trick i had seen on Heather Summers blog with the oval punch. You NEED this punch. So many terrific things you can do with it. I put a brad in the middle to add accent and a little ribbon from Basic Grey. Yummy card.


Okay, I still love this set. It is just so GIRLY! I will admit this card took me the longest as I did a little paper piecing with it. I stamped her on designer paper and cut her pants out and then stamped her again on Whisper White cardstock and put her pants on. LOL! I also popped up the purse and shopping bags to add dimension. I used some of my favorite colors on this layout. Cool Caribbean, Real Red, and Not Quite Navy. The "Celebrate You!" sentiment came from that good ole' Greetings Galore Set.


Okay, one last card...


This one was pretty easy to put together. I used quite a few stamp sets however!
Eat Cake, Stamp of Authenticity, It's Your Birthday and lastly, Handle with Care. I used True Thyme cardstock with the Playhouse designer paper! This is more of a boy birthday card and I have very few of these!!!
Well, I hope your Monday is great! Get some time to stamp and make it a GREAT day!!
