Happy Sunday

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend. I had my 2 grand-daughters for a sleepover, and we had a blast. We stamped, coloured, designed clothes for the paper doll I bought them, read stories, made up some other stories and just had the best time ever. I love spending time with them.

Here is a card that I designed a few months ago and I thought I would share it with you. I had decided to use some of the G Studio $1.50 stamps which I have so many of . I needed to make a bunch of Birthday cards in a hurry and wanted to design a card that just took a few minutes to put together, and, this is what I came up with . I was so happy with it, and in less than an hour I made ten of these cards to send out.

I used one of my favourite background polka dot stamps from PaperTrey Ink stamps and my favourite scallop punch from EK Success to enhance the card. And, of course I used some Glamour Dust glitter to finish the card. Let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I would love to hear from you.

Wow, Nicky - you make a $1.50 stamp look like a million bucks! Beautiful card, and I love the fact that it's quick & easy - just what we need sometimes. Thanks for sharing.
