Today is my birthday and I think hubby loves it more than I do, and I love my birthday. Birthdays and Holidays are always early with this man, he can't stand to wait when he has something to give as a gift. Bless his heart! ha ha ha!
So, it wasn't quite midnight and he said, "I know it's not quite your birthday yet..." and I'm thinking okay, here he goes, early gift. LOL "... but I want to give you this before you kill me." WHAT? He turns and looks at my "non-SU" stamps I have on my wall. I'm thinking, OMG, what did he do? Well, he made me a card and didn't know how to clean the stamps! Is that adorable or what? They were pretty inky, but we got them clean.
Oh wait, there's a little bit of SU here. He used Memento Black Ink and a piece of my NEW In-Color cardstock - Sweet Sugarplum. The outside is blank (we'll work on that) this is inside six different kitties from various stamps collected Pre-SU and one doggie paw print for our dog that thinks he's a cat.
Here are my contributions for today. I believe I saw these on Billie Moan's blog. There are so many great ones out there using the Swirly Scribbles and I love them all.
Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Night of Navy - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White - 5" x 3 3/4"
Sweet Sugarplum - for Swirly Scribble Flowers
Emerald Envy - for Swirly Scribble Leaves
Sweet Sugarplum Ink
Swirly Bird Stamp Set - for dots under flowers.
Wink of Stella (only used on one, but I will be adding it to the other one)
3/8" Ruched Ribbon - Sweet Sugarplum
See how beautiful the Wink of Stella looks on the card above? I think this is my favorite way to bling up everything!
I left the sentiment off so I could make it whatever I want when I need a card. This would work for just about anything.
Thank you for looking in today. I've got the day off from the office so we're going out and doing all kinds of fun things, including going out to dinner with hubby, my oldest son and his girlfriend, then this weekend dinner with my youngest son - that is if I ever get to bed, it's nearly one a.m.!
