The Pink Envelope

Boy Birthday's!

Hey folks!
I tell ya, these cards probably couldn't get any busier if they got up and started doing housework. Sometimes it's it's great to focus on one or 2 techniques/products, but sometimes it's even better to just start pulling stuff out and go crazy. If it works, fabulous, if not that's fabulous too! It's still a great time and that's the point. Yes? Brings images to mind of The Mad Scientist in his lab, mixing up concoctions, laughing maniacally. Eh, yeah, kinda...

You Lift Me Up

Hey Folks!
Today I want to share a card I made using the stamp set by In A Creative Bubble for Studio Calico. I received this set in the "Cirque" February Card Kit.

This kit has so much to offer and I love every bit of it, but this stamp set makes me especially happy! Hot air balloon, funky lil clouds, and the font are fabulous! The only thing I used out of the kit for this, was the stamp set. It has a 6x6 pad full of fabulous papers and some really cute embellishments. Love!
