Happy Birthday, Jacob!

Today is such a bittersweet day!  My "baby" is 12 years old today!  Sadly, he's spending it in bed sick...  But he's 12!

To mark to occasion...I "whipped" up a card that symbolizes that great guy that he is.  At the same time, I participated in a color challenge to make a card using Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz and Perfect Plum.  Not 100% almost a teenager colors......but I was up for the challenge.  I got some inspiration from a fellow stamper, Bronwyn Eastley, all the way in Australia!!  Thank you, Bronwyn!  What do you think??


Stamps:  Extreme Guitar, Extreme Elements, Happy Birthday to you! (retired)
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Grey, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum
Ink:  Basic Black, Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz

The Occasions Mini is HERE!!

There is something about this mini catalogue that gets me, everytime it comes out!!  Maybe it has something to do with the bright spring-like colors, that remind us that winter will end.  Maybe it's the lovely Valentines Day and Easter stamp sets, or the beautiful Designer Series Paper.  My wishlist is long!!  Once my order arrives, I will get some projects posted from the Mini.  In the meantime, click on the link and have a peek for yourself.  Make sure to have paper and pen ready to make your list!!!

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
