Hi stampers! Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes yesterday! Your comments always brighten my day but they were extra sweet yesterday! I also had a ton of good wishes on Facebook...I really need to get better at reading the little thing on the side that says when birthdays are...I realized I rarely look at it.
Anyway I had a wonderful birthday! We had a healthy dinner at home since I'm saving up for my party Saturday night (lol) and then got some McDonald's ice cream! A cone has only 150 calories, did you know that? It's a favorite treat and I knew I wouldn't have to twist my hubby's arm very hard to take me;-)
And I got a Kindle Fire!!!! It was funny because I guess my hubs had the idea since Christmas but he kept bugging me for ideas. He was hoping I'd tell him little things as to "set the bar" low and then he could blow me away with the Kindle BUT....about a week ago when he was bugging me for ideas I happened to think of the idea myself, lol! He was "mad" that I kind of ruined his idea....well....he should have quit bugging me for ideas, HA!!!! Anyway, I LOVE to read so I'm very excited but nervous since I'll probably buy a ton of books now, hahahaha! Gotta remember to save money for stamps!!!!
But as I mentioned yesterday, I realized I was sorely lacking in birthday cards....at least ones made with recent stamp sets. So, I set to work and came up with this card which uses the sketch challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary this week:
Stamps: You're my type
Paper: Very vanilla, daffodil delight, soft suede, poppy parade textured, attic boutique DSP, first edition DSP
Ink: Soft suede, basic gray, poppy parade
Accessories: Triple heart punch, decorative label punch, basic pearls, poppy parade ribbon
I did flip the side I put the ribbon on but otherwise it's pretty true to the sketch. I based my colors off of the antique boutique DSP as I wanted it to be bright but still be kind of vintage. I love the combo of daffodil and poppy! And of course the first edition DSP was MADE for this stamp set!I probably should have saved this for mailable Monday but I wanted to share it before that! It does have one small pearl but those little ones go through the mail pretty good:-) Now, I need to make a bunch more birthday cards.....
