You're a Blast!


I needed a quick boy Birthday card this morning! One of my sweet kids that I teach at church is *finally* turning 4! All of his class mates have been 5 for a couple of month now and he has been patiently waiting! I will be taking his gift and card to church today to get it to him before his big day! Whenever I need a quick card, I love using a sketch. Well, what do you know, Jen's sketch worked perfectly for today's card! You can check it out here: http://www.iheart2stamp.com/ . I used some retired paper and for the life of me I can't remember what it is called. ugh! Sorry 'bout that! I also used my ever essential *pun fun* stamp set. It has been one of my *go to* sets for kids cards lately. I used my prismacolor markers to color the image and added a few diamond stickles to the stars and rocket! I used a minimal amount of ribbon because I didn't want it to look to feminine! I also added a star brad to the center of the punched star image. I also used the sentiment from "Wow flowers". I have never used that set until today. Isn't that sad?
Also, my DH bought me some great items for my stamp area. As soon as I have everything organized, I will share some photos. I am super excited to get everything all arranged! I hope that it will help spark some inspiration! LOL!
I also tried another *fabulous* recipe yesterday. We had a family dinner last night with my extended family and I wanted to bring a little something for each family. I had already given away the last of my jam, so I needed something a little quicker to make, but equally fun! My sister and I got together and whipped it up and it turned out beautifully! I will be making up some more today to give to a few ladies in the neighborhood, so when I do, I will share it all with you! Keep posted! Thanks for fluttering by!
