Happy Friday to all! I just realized, I haven't posted a new card since last Friday!!! Guess I'm just giving wayyyyy too much attention to these grandkids of mine that have come to live with me! hahahaha!! But really, they have cut back on my stamping and blogging time. But of course, it's so worth it. I just hope you'll have patience with me and still come back a visit.
This week at Stamp Something, the challenge is to Celebrate Somethings. That is always a good theme as it gives us soooo many options. Since I have no one graduating, getting married (until this fall), having a baby or anything else... I again chose to go with a birthday celebration. I can always use more birthday cards and bet that's true for almost everyone
This week's sponsor is Motivet. I haven't known about this company all that long, but have totally fallen in love with their images! They are all so wonderful! And, lucky for all of us, they have a brand new release that I think is absolutely great! Please go check them out. I bet you won't be disappointed!
This card was so fun to work up. The Motivet image was a blast to color. And I got new papers (and a couple other things!) from a store I just found in Kansas City named "Archivers". They are not new and I've known about them for quite some time but had never actually made it to the store. Stamping friends would drool when telling me what a great place it is to visit. Well... I finally made it there and man... my friends were right!!! What a fun place! All the latest papers (and some of the old faves), great selection of stamps, embellies, storage, you name it. They are now my favorite brick and mortar store. I'll be going back whenever I can.
