Happy Birthday Mary and Grace!

Mary's birthday is on May 30 and Grace's is on May 29, so we always have their parties together.  When I was expecting Mary, Grace had asked me if I could please have the baby on her birthday so she could have a "birthday buddy."  I told her no, that wasn't going to happen because the baby wasn't due until July.  Mary must have heard her sister's request because she came seven weeks early!  So birthday buddies it's been ever since. 

I made this card using the cute pops2eat, patterns4pops, and miniabc2stamp sets from Stephanie Bernard's Stamps of Life.  For the popcicles, I stamped off the pop background (inked the stamp, stamped on a scratch paper, then stamped the image so the ink was lighter) and then used the same ink full strength for the dots.

You're a treat!

I made this card for my dear ex mother in law and friend, Carolyn.  She IS a treat!  I'm going to put a Dairy Queen gift card inside. :)  I know she'll like that.

I used Echo Park "Springtime" paper, and Stamps of Life "Pops2eat" stamp set.  I added the little smiley because I love smiles on objects, like apples, toasters, etc. I think it's so cute.

Steampunk Art Journal

Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante line is right up my alley.  I love the Victorian look. I made this album for a friend of mine and I liked how it turned out.  I enjoy adding details.
