Doodle This Birthday Wishes

I created this card based on the "Amazing" card on page 93 of the 2009 Spring-Summer Stampin' Up Catalogue. I actually kind of like how this one turned out. I sponged Baja Breeze on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I then stamped on two "Doodle This" flowers with Pumpkin Pie and the flourish with Old Olive. The sentiment is from "Sincere Salutations" and stamped in Chocolate Chip. This is matted on Chocolate Chip and then adhered to a Baja Breeze card. The brads in the centre of the flowers are from the Dollarama.

Fall-Winter 2008 Stampin' Up Catalogue - Lifts!

My projects lately are alternating between cards and scrapbook pages. I have finally started Hunter's school scrapbook and finished both his JK and SK pages. I like how they turned out and will share them once I figure out how to black out the kids in his class photo.

Yesterday I went through (again!) the Fall-Winter 2008 Stampin' Up Catalogue for more ideas. I set out on a mission to create all of the cards I liked in the catalogue. I was able to finish two of the cards. The first is a lift of a thank you card on page 16 and the second is a lift of birthday card on page 4. I really had to force myself to use the supplies/tools that I have. My wish list is so incredibly long it's ridiculous. And I'm sure it will get bigger once the new catalogue comes out.

Pet Sympathy Card

My friend Marilyn lost her dog Hershey at the end of December. I have been meaning to pick-up a pet sympathy card for her, but then decided to just make one myself. I don't have any sympathy sets, so I decided to us Pocket Silhouettes. I found a sentiment online and printed it on the inside. I hope it makes her smile.
