A Fancy Folk Art Birthday Card

Here is a card I made for my lovely sister. This stamp set, "Fancy Folk Art" from Papertrey Ink, always makes me think of her. I wish I could be with her on her birthday and have a few refreshing beverages to celebrate, but I have to wait until this summer to see her. We will make up for lost time then.

A Quick Thank You

Here is a quick thank you card I made using last week's Retro Sketch. My son needed some thank you cards and I quickly made 3 of these. I used the Taylored Expressions March Key Ingredients Kit in combination with the sketch for a quick card. I love using the kits with sketches for quick and coordinated cards. The two combined makes it very easy to make something I am happy with and enjoy giving to others.

Washi Been Up To?

Last month our stamp group had a challenge to use Washi Tape on our cards. Here is my card inspired by Cards by Alice. You can see her beautiful Easter creation by clicking here. I was in the mood for spring so I used some bright colors for my flower. I have picked up Washi Tape more for my Erin Condren Planner than for making cards but find I use it for so many other things. I put in on my phone charger and earbuds so no one else can claim them:)

Here is a card using some washi and a cute little stamp from Unity Stamp Co. Megan used this on for her brother's birthday card.

Its Sherbert Day

When I saw this stamp from Unity Stamp Company, I HAD to get it. I paired this awesome little stamp with  this week's sketch from Retrosketches. It's a tradition here to play 50 Cent's "In Da' Club" which opens with "Go Shawty, It's your birthday.."  for my kids birthday to wake them up. Megan and Jake's birthdays are just a few weeks apart and I used the new stamp for both their cards. I just changed up the color scheme. I know they will also want this stamp for their friend's birthday cards as well. It's such a fun little set!

" Go Shawty, it's your birthday. We're going to party like it's your birthday.."
