Happy Birthday

Happy Monday Morning everyone. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We were surprised on Saturday when my oldest daughter showed up at home. We didn't know that she was coming home from college for the weekend. Luckily I was still able to create a card for today's challenge at 2Sketches4You that is being sponsored by JustRite Stampers. For those of you who don't know, my daughter and I "share" her bedroom - my stamping studio when she is not home and her bedroom when she comes home. So while she is home, I need to pack away all of my toys and let her have some place to sleep.

Today's card was made for my mother-in-law for her birthday. When I saw this paper, I immediately thought of her because these are "her" colors. The design on the paper is also very "her".

I chose to design my own sentiment using the 2" wood stamper along with the 15 point font. This font size fits perfectly into the 2" wood stamper. I love to create my own sentiments and make my cards personal.

Also great about these JustRite Stamps is the ability to interchange different stamp sets. For example, I used the flower vase designer center from the Favorite Occasions set - which happens to be a round center. It fits perfectly into the square stamper. The possiblities are endless with these stamp sets.

My sentiment and mats are diecut using the Spellbinders Classic Square Nestabilities. Another perfect match for the 2" wood stamper.

This is a view of the back of my 2" wood stamper.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
