Birthday Blossoms

Here's a sweet, simple card using Birthday Blossoms. I love using a coordinating stamp on the envelope and sometimes even the inside of the card, as shown here:

One of my favorite new products is the Wink of Stella Glitter brush. It's so easy, and it packs just the right amount of punch on any card! Here's a close-up of the flowers on a lighter pink version:

More Tap Tap Taps!!

I sure love this set... here was the other card I made with it:

I'm in a phase where I don't want any "bumps" on my cards (as the post office worker calls them)... such as ribbon knots and rhinestones. I don't always like adding that extra 22 cents, so this card was an attempt to include ribbon and still keep the post office happy. ;)

Happy Stamping!

Tap Tap Tap

I've always been drawn to this stamp set, primarily because I'm drawn to all things old fashioned, I suppose! I took some time to make some simple notecards to send to friends and this was my favorite:

Take a few minutes to say "hello" to one of your good friends today!

Happy Stamping!

Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

Today is my parents' 47th wedding anniversary! I mailed this card to them to commemorate the occasion:

You can see that I used some new stamps, including the gorgeous new "Number of Years" bundle from the new Occasions catalog! I can easily predict that I'll be using this set a lot.

I look forward to the time when I can celebrate 47 years with my own husband! ...but for now, we'll be happy celebrating our 24th.

Happy stamping!
