A little birdie told me

That I should make a birthday card.  Today, my inspiration comes from Seize the Birthday #12 challenge.  

Here is the sketch they provided:

Here is my card:

The papers are from the Everyday Flair collection by My Minds Eye.

I used the Heartsong stamps from Skipping Stones Designs.

And trimmed it with a bit of lace.

I hope you enjoy!

Feeling Groovy!

I'm feeling groovy using some of my new craft supplies along with some of my very old supplies.

This week I played along with the Mojo Monday Sketch #287.

Here's the card I made:

I used steampunk embossing folder by Darice and embossed a piece of silver packaging.  Recycling is Groovy, right?  I also recently purchased the Silver Studded Gelly Gems Roll-ups (studded mesh) and was excited to use it on a project.  The stamp is from Autumn Leaves.  The background paper was a gift and I don't know what collection it's from.

 Feeling Groovy, Gears, and studs, seem to "mesh" together nicely.
Oh, ha ha.  I make such funny jokes.

Okay... during the making of this card, I accidentally ate some crafting products.  
I used Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress pad to add some dimension to the gears.  The paper is non-porous, so I don't think the ink dried all the way and it got on my fingers.
Then, I used white glue to attach the studded mesh, I used my fingers to spread it on the back.
Can you see where this is going?  I had a messy build up on my fingers and for some reason, my stupid brain made me stick my finger in my mouth to bite off the build-up.  
It tasted horrible.  I thought I was going to die from the bad taste alone.

It's 24 hours later and I'm still alive, so these products are safe to eat, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Welcome Gnome!

Hello and welcome to another handmade card.   I recently got some new 6x6 papers by My Mind's Eye called "Gnome Sweet Gnome" and I couldn't wait to use them.  

Here's my card:

The image is a stamp from The Sweet Shop Gnomies.  
These stamps coordinate well with the papers.

The ovals were cut with Spellbinders oval dies.

I hope you enjoy my little Gnomie card!
