365 Cards: #happybirthday

If you've seen me in person recently, you know that I'm so excited to be an auntie again! It's probably the first or second thing out of my mouth. The last few weeks, I've been impatiently waiting for our new nephew and niece to be born. My sister-in-law is a trooper... full term with healthy twins! And during the last few weeks, I've also been making them some baby quilts that I will be sharing soon... but I needed some cards to go with them!

I wanted each baby to get a happy birthday card with their quilt and I really wanted something simple, yet pretty that was quick to make.

You might look at the stamp set and wonder... "how did she get that from those stamps?!" Well, it was quite easy... and here is a quick video to show you! :)

So in addition to new babies soon to be in our family, I am excited about this new baby... the What Will You Stamp? Challenge Blog! I love challenge blogs but I've always wondered why there isn't one that focuses on stamp sets?! I'm always looking for ideas for the stamp sets I own and I know that my customers do the same.... well, from that the idea and concept for this challenge blog was born! I have jumped in, assembled the best team of amazingly talented stampers I personally know for the design team and today is our first day! So please go check out the What Will You Stamp? Challenge Blog to see other ideas for using this stamp set and join in the fun by making something with these stamps!

To make this a little bit more fun, the Design Team members will each be giving away something fun on their posts.... so make sure you go check them out! And since I am on the Design Team, I will be giving away some Calypso Coral Baker's Twine right here as my giveaway to celebrate our new challenge blog and thank you for visiting! What do you need to do to enter you might ask? Just leave a comment below before 9 pm PST/Midnight EST on Saturday, March 7, 2015 to be entered!
