Happy Anniversary & a bonus card

>> Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to ink up my Fleur de Lis stamp again, so I made a CAS anniversary card over the weekend.  I chose a simple black and white color combo and stamped the ornament in each of the four corners using my Stamp-a-majig and white ink. Then I stamped the Fleur de Lis end to end in black ink and used an Oval Spellbinders die to cut it out.  This was after fussy cutting the tips, to make it fit.  

Lastly I adhered the Tiny Happy Anniversary that was stamped and cut out using my circle punches.  Simple and elegant.

I mentioned my friend's 10 year old daughter in my post last week.  Well, the family came back from vacation and she brought us back a souvenir.  Her dad told us she picked it out all by herself, and used her own money to buy it.  Isn't that sweet?   

Here is our new mermaid that is currently living on my craft table:

And in case you didn't pick up on it yourself,  Lindsey proudly told me, "She's totally made of REAL shells!...except her head." ;) ;) ;)

So I used  Shelia and Janett's recent cards for inspiration for my thank you card for her and the family.

These are the stamps I used:

So happy to be able to share with you on the blog today... Hoping your day is filled with smiles :) :) :)
