Isn't this little guy just the cutest! I love him! Everything about him makes me smile so I felt he's perfect to deliver a message of thanks!

I decided to use my new PaperTrey Ink dies and make a cut-out in my card and actually put my stamped image on the inside of the card! I kept it pretty monochromatic, mostly because I am obsessed with pink and I got a new pink Copic marker today. If anyone has suggestions of the perfect Copic shade, I'll gladly take them. So far, they have all been very bright...
I just thought this picture was cool!
Seriously, can this cat get any cuter? I used Glossy Accents on the balloon!

I did some crazy stitching and used a pinked circle to make it a little more WILD too!

I've decided I love this sentiment from the Hero Arts Friends stamp set because it's so versatile! It can be used for a birthday but also still works for any other special occasion!

Feeling very inspired by Lucy's challenge and my paper delivery today, I knew I really wanted to participate in my 1st challenge! I used Sketch #4. Hurray! I feel like a major milestone has been achieved!
Here's what I came up with!

Hurray!I love owls. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE owls! In fact, my daughter's 1st birthday party is OWL themed. So, I had to buy this stamp for her upcoming invitations...
Actually, that's what got me going on this whole card thing. In the past, I've always been a big paper crafter, huge scrapbooker in college. I remember lots and lots of nights sitting on the floor of my sorority house bedroom scrapping away. Fast forward almost 10 years (yikes!) and here I am, crafting at my kitchen table while my 2 little ones sleep! I don't have much time and I always get interrupted so it took me a few days to get this one together!
Now that it's all put together, I'm actually pretty happy with how this turned out. I wanted this card to be multi-purpose as I am planning to donate some cards for son's school auction.
