I was home alone today, so I was able to spend some quality time in my craft room. I had a couple of cards I wanted to work on. The first one is a birthday card for my grandson. I had an idea of what I wanted, but I didn't have the patterned paper I needed. I pulled out a stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger called Lots of Letters. This set is available at Gina K. Designs. Besides a set of lower case letters, this set contains a set of numbers and various circles and squares. I decided on a single square with a stitched edge. I was able to create this wonderful background using GKD Sweet Corn, Blue Denim, Powder Blue & Red Hot inks. The bicycle stamp and sentiment are from the GKD Enjoy the Sunshine stamp set. I used the Verve Pennant Trim die to make the pennant, and as luck would have it, the mailman delivered my Lots of Letters 2 stamp set today, so I was able to add Donovan's name. The Lots of Letters 2 set is a wonderful companion set to the Lots of Letters set. It contains a set of capital letters and various other flowers, pennants, circles, leaves and lines.

We have a nephew getting married in June, so I wanted to make a card for them. I pulled this set out by Becky Oehlers called I do! I have had it for a while and not yet gotten it inky, so it was way overdue. It contains this wonderful hexagon border stamp that I love, and bride, groom, the plus & equal signs. I used a die from Verve called Heart Quartet for the hearts, and Martha Stewart border punch called Beaded Ruffle. I accented the ruffle and the dress with some pearls from Recollections. All in all, I think it turned out to be a really cute card. Thanks so much for coming by to look!
