There seems to be a lot of March babies out there, my daughter included! Here are some cards and 1 tag that I have made for the family and friends that we know celebrating their birthdays in March. As you will see a lot of Truck birthday cards, these were made for my son's friends.
Finally you are able to see the fresh card designs for my March Stamp Camp Card! I think the warmer weather inspired the colors in this card trio. I hope you can join me on Sunday, March 23 for some Stamping Fun! Please RSVP by Wednesday, March 19. - Click here to email me

Every New Year brings lots of birthdays to celebrate, mine included. I think that I have 7 family and friends celebrating their birthdays this month. :) One of my New Year's resolutions was to make cards and send them out. Below are a couple of birthday themed cards that I have created. Some of my first card creations for 2014.
You will see that the colour schemes are the same (Very Vanilla card stock, Bermuda Bay card stock, Crisp Cantaloupe card stock). There are also some differences, the top card has not been textured embossed and the bottom card has. The top card has an extra set of card stock strips and the bottom card does not. I guess you could say that the bottom has the "Step it Up" technique, using the same layout but stepping it up a notch (for example embossing).
I hope all of you enjoyed your Holiday Season and rang in the New Year in a memorable way! Wishing you all the best for 2014. I was a little late getting a start on my Christmas cards so at the last minute I ended up making some Happy New Year cards. The above card is what I made. I always have fun with the embossing technique. Whether it is using an embossing folder with the Big Shot or heat embossing with Embossing Powder, the results always make me smile.
What is your New Year's Resolution? I would love to hear about it. Please feel free to post in on my stamping blog. I have a couple this year! One of them is to send more cards out. :) I always start good and then end up forgetting or not sending them. Especially masculine type cards. So my Stamping New Years resolution is to send more cards to people to help brighten their day. Which means posting more of my creations on my stamping blog which then in turn hopefully inspires you.

My next Christmas Card Stamp Camp is on Sunday, November 17, 2013. Below are 2 of the 3 cards we will be making. I hope you are able
to join me for some Christmas card stamping fun. At this Stamp Camp we are going to make
8 Christmas cards (4 each of 2 different designs shown below) as well as 4 Occasion cards
for a total of 12 cards. For the month of November the Occasion card will be a card of your choice. I know a couple of people celebrating birthdays in November so I thought it might be fitting to also make birthday cards along with the Christmas cards. If you have another occasion that you would like to make a card for, please feel free to do so. I will have the card layout and all of the supplies ready for you to make but you can choose what occasion you want it to be. :) I will try and post the 3rd card designer (Occasion Card) over the next couple of days.
