Hoppy Memories

Two posts in one day!!  Don't get used to it, it may never happen again.

In my quest for making boys cards and not really having very many boy stamps, I turned to the Hoppy Memories Simply Scrappin Kit.  It's not just for doing scrapbook pages, you can use all those elements for cards as well.  Everything used in this card is from the kit apart from the greeting which is stamped.  The other great thing is, the kits make things quick! I whipped this up in less than 30 minutes last night.

Stamps:  On Your Birthday

This is a card I made for Charlie's 4th birthday, earlier this year.  It is a case from a very talented Canadian demonstrator named Andrea Walford, and I didn't use a single stamp.

Clean and Simple Challenge

Hi everyone,

I realised last night when I was checking my stash that I am very low on cards for young boys. Lila has a birthday party today and I usually have a selection of cards for her to choose from but she was horrified to find I only had 2 for her to eenie, meenie, miney, mo.  So I thought I better do some more and I headed over to the clean and simple sketch challenge to start me off - from there it was easy - that's why I love sketches - all the hard work is done. 

This is the sketch

And this is my card.  I used the very cute Wild About You set and chose some BRIGHT colours.
