Hey there!

I know its been a while. 
Life is full and very busy so my time and desire to be creative has been missing. But every once in a while I have a moment(or a need) to create. 
With a room full of supplies I find it hard to spend my hard earned money on a card so I typically squeeze in some time to get cards made for upcoming birthdays. Its a win-win. My wallet likes it and I get some time in the studio. :)

For my card, I started with some inspiration from THIS project posted on the Pink Paislee blog.

And I ended up here.

The papers and white alphas are Heidi Swapp, and the "happy" is a cut from the Silhouette store.

Thanks for stopping by! 
I hope to be posting again soon!

Waffle Flower meets Paper Issues--Painting by the Numbers

Paper Issues has a new issue posted and this round we have paired up with Waffle Flower Crafts
I received a set of the Calendar Numbers Stamp Set and I loved them so much that I got to work on a card just as soon as I could get the envelope opened!

I love the two sets of numbers, one solid and one outline. The two sets together give you a ton of options and with the verbiage pieces, it makes it perfect for pocket pages, planners, gift wrap, and cards. I layered them up, using neon inks to create a faux 3D look for my daughter's birthday card.

Don't you just love how that looks?!? I love that technique. :)
Stop by the Paper Issues blog to see what the other Paper Issues girls did with the stamps and check out the blog again on Friday the 20th to see what the Waffle Flower ladies did with the Paper Issues Swag Bag!
