Hello and welcome...hope you all are having a good day...stopping in today with a fun card using Simon Says Stamp picture book dies the Koala and some bamboo shoots to go with this punny sentiment from my stash ...I decided to create 2 Koalas and change the colors a bit for some interest...also stamping the sentiment on velum to not distract much from the scene

But card makers don't forget to mail out birthday cards do they? think I better keep this one for myself....

Hello and WELCOME

Hi there thanks for stopping by today ...I and back and ready to get into the swing of things after taking a bit of a blog break...I've been posting more on social media and not so much here...but I'm back....brushed up on some of my photography skills got some new equipment and now I'm ready to play ...
today I have 2 cards that I created using a pile of goodies I just received in the mail from Simon Says Stamp.....

I wanted to use everything I got all at once but tried to restrain myself to just a few of the new products...
I finally ordered some of the adorable picture book dies, new stencils and some glitter paste...
I am smitten with all my new goodies but girls...GLITTER paste is amazing...

I started by creating a background using distress oxide inks in Mermaid Lagoon and Picked Raspberry ..then I used a falling heart stencil and the glitter paste...after everything dried I die cut this cute picture book elephant in different colors of card stock using my Gemini and proceeded to glue together the pieces...I then die cut the fabulous Thanks die from Honey Bee ... I decided instead of making just baby cards I would turn them into THANKS for the baby gift cards   

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon...
have a great Easter Week-end
