Happy Birthday!

Well, I thought I would work on some birthday cards – we all need them right?  Something, I don’t often do but should really do more of is using stamps to create the background images.  So, I really should start doing this since I am a Designer Series Paper (DSP) hoarder.  Yep, that’s me, I admit it.  I’m a craft supply hoarder.


I was just stamping away – die cutting away, using the Balloon Adventure set.  I got carried away and even made a few blunders.  Which actually they turned out pretty good too.  So just because they didn’t turn out they way you planed – don’t throw them away.  You would have never guessed these two cards were blunders would you?

Hello Birthday Boy!

My oldest grandson’s birthday is coming up.  With 4 1/2 granddaughters (my 5th is due at the end of February), my two grandson’s get the short end of the stick with my creativeness.  I’ve said before – I wasn’t a real fan of the Balloon Celebration set when I first saw it in the catalog.  Now, I can’t put it down.  I’ve paired this card with a limited edition Sale-A-Bration set Hello.  Hello is only available until February 15th!

Hello Balloon Celebration!

I sat down and make a stack of cards using the Balloon Celebration and limited edition Hello Sale-A-Bration set.  These are the cards I was struggling with in my Lost Mojo post.  You can see my smudges, uneven stamping, finger printers, smears, you name it – you can see it.  Thankfully my Granddaughters and dear friend won’t mind at all. Love that I have them in my life just for the fact they love me and my imperfect cards.
