Birthday Wishes

I know my titles are not that creative, I will work on that! But I made this card for a friends little boy who turns two. We are going to the birthday party tomorrow. My kids should love that, and my friends have friends who have b/g twins as well and they are about 6 months older so that is always fun. Let's hope it doesn't rain too bad like they say.

I started with SU River Rock and used CB embossing folder Swiss Dots. Has anyone seen the new folders coming out in June? I forget where but I saw them online. I hope that some of my local stores get them in! The patterned papers are from the DCWV stack pack called Nana's Kids and they are glitter papers which I love! I layered them with Close to Cocoa and Certainly Celery. The layered papers on the left are raised using pop dots as is the scalloped sentiment. I used the SU set "So Many Scallops". I've been finding I love this cute little set and it's so perfect because it works well with the SU scallop punch (which I think is the point!) but I do love that scalloped punch. The chipboard number I had in my stash and I think it was from a pack I got at Walmart a long time ago.

I have some cool things coming my way. I placed an order with Unity Stamps which I'm psyched about. I heard alot of good things about them. I will soon have some samples with the great new sets by Clear and Simple Stamps, coming June 1. And you will want to check out Mothers & Daughters Creations as they have added some fantastic new clear stamps by Imaginisce and they now carry the super cool papers by Core'dinations. Just as soon as I get the stamps in I will be sure to have samples posted.

Soon I will also post some blog candy!! I have to say I have some SU sets that I haven't used much if at all. What do you guys think, is it rude to offer blog candy on slightly used sets? (but in great condition!) I thought that might be better than trying to sell them, it would be nice to give them to someone who would like to have them. What do you think, you can be honest!

That's it for now!

Till later....
