Animal Stories Birthday Card!

It was my nephews 2nd birthday on Saturday so I made him a card with some of the new items from the new Stampin Up catalog. I used the very cute Animal Stories stamp set with the coordinating DSP Tall Tales. I just love how the new "In Colors" go with the patterned paper. I also used the new Modern Label punch. Last but not least I stamped the "Happy Birthday" in the new Teeny Tiny Wishes set. I just love this set. It has so many different greetings. I just love the new colors. I used Crushed Curry cardstock and ink, Dusty Durango Ink and cardstock for and Soft Suede. I love how it turned out. And my nephew loved the little whale...

The Scrap Review

There is a new blog that I think will be on my must reads everyday. It is called The Scrap Review. You can find it here
There are a group of crafters that will review scrap products. I don't know about you but I like to know if something is worth spending my hard earned money on. In this economy that is something great. They are having a week of giveaways so I would step on over and see what they are about. It will really be worth your while.

Have a great monday

Picture Frame

I have been looking for a cute picture frame to put a picture of my son in and have not been able to find one. So I decided to make one myself. I bought a picture frame for two dollars at Joanns. Everything else I got at Target from the dollar bin. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Please excuse my microwave in the background. I have to find a place to take pics that has better light.
