This card is for my monthly card swap. The theme is "All Purpose Cards for Teen Boys." I used Stampin' Up! Lots of Bots stamp set, and Stampin' Up! Riding Hood Red. For the designer paper I used DCWV All About Boys Stack.

.Whenever I make a card I like to take a picture of it. From time to time I like to look through them to get some inspiration when I have what I call "card maker's" block. Tonight I went through them and found this card that I made last year from my grandmother just becasue...although most of my cards I tend to make with kraft paper occasionally I stray away and use a different color like with this one. The stamps are from Stampin' Up! and same for the ink, Chocolate Chip. I also used a premade card.

What to do with my left over paper? I make 3x3 cards...this one is from a set that I made for my sister-in-law's birthday present. (the one who got me started with stamping) I broke out my new paper from Cosmo Cricket. I used a one inch circle punch and a square scallop punch. The heart stamp is from Stampin Up!, and Stampin' Up! Wild Wasabi ink, which is one of my favorite colors from them along with their Crumb Cake card stock.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! I hope that you are wearing green today. I recently made this card for a friend of mine. Once again I am using one of my favorite sketch ideas for this card. I also used my favorite embellishments at the moment, which are buttons. I seem to go through phases of embellishments, and considering the several jars of buttons I have on my table, they seem to be the "it" embellishment for me. Though recently I have been eyeing "thickers " when I check out my favorite websites and local craft stores. So who knows, maybe that will be my next phase of embellishments. Hope you all have a great day and that you don't get pinched!

If it wasn't for my sister-in-law I would of never got into stamping. On a whim I decided to go to a stamp camp that she was going to and needless to say I have been hooked ever since...that was 5 years ago. I signed up that night to join her friend's (my friend and Stampin' Up! demonstrator now) stamp club, and never thought that 5 years later I would be so addicted to this craft. At my stamp club we have such a good time. It's nice to be among a bunch of women who share the same passion as me.
