Fun Birthday Cards; Stampin’ Up! And, My Next Project!

Here are a few more quick cards that I created for the auction basket.  Amy let us know that her fundraising event brought in over $1200!!  I am happy that I could help in just my tiny way.  Just another reason I love my stamping addiction.  I mean job/hobby/passion.  🙂

Again, I used some retired stamps and paper and even a bit of ribbon I had in my scrap basket!  I know that you can not purchase these stamp sets anymore maybe, just maybe the color combinations or card layouts will help inspire you to create something fun today!  

 Below you will find the next thing on my to-do list!

Today I am hoping to start working on the wreath kit that is in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I was trying to NOT get it but, I could not resist.  I am having Easter at our home this year and it will look great on my kitchen door.  Since we are having the family over I NEEDED to buy it!  Well, if my husband asks that is what I am going to tell him plus, there is no way that I could go buy one cheaper than this!
