Polka Dot Birthday


I love my little masculine birthday card and the Cherry Cobbler added a perfect accent to the Very Vanilla with the Birthday Basics designer series paper and the Label Love clear mount stamp set (on Sale Right Now!)

You have got to admit that the Artisan Label punch (on Sale Right Now!) has a very masculine look to it too!  C'mon admit it… it's a must have!  LOL.  Although, using basic gray ink simply seems to add a more bold flavor to the stamp, don't you think?


Yes, this card was pre-made before sending my supplies home about a month ago and now that I'm home reconnecting with family is the very best thing in the world.  So much so that it's just a little bit overwhelming.

Yet the emotions are sweet with a morsel sense of peace and quiet.  Not sure if it makes sense to you and it's a tiny bit difficult to explain, but trying to re-adjust to a 13-hour time difference is not easy.

In the meantime, there is a box of Stampin' Up! goodies waiting for me in my craft room… my mind often wonders and I find myself daydreaming of the cute gifts I'm making my co-workers for Christmas… LOL.

However, I'm beyond stoked with all the special sales going on with Stampin' Up!  Check them out right now because it's the time to get them in time for either making Christmas Tags or card kits as gifts… yayyyyy!
