Smile! And Wish Big!

Hello!  I have enjoyed spending time crafting so much this Spring Break!  Sometimes I forget how relaxing it can be just sitting at my table and playing...for the fun of it...just because! :)  Amy is always telling me that I need to play along with challenges and so this week I have listened to her and done just that.

Today I am playing along with a new-to-me challenge that Amy introduced me to called Seize the Birthday!  It is a blog challenge dedicated to birthday cards and for this week we were to make a card based on the provided sketch that was feminine based.

Wish Big Bday

Cameras are so trendy lately.  And I love them.  I have been looking and looking for the perfect camera stamp that was solid (that was a KEY element) so that I didn't have to color or paper piece them.  Yes, lazy stamper!  Webster's Pages recently released this set and it was love at first sight.  The only downside is that they are red rubber.  Yep.  I caved.  I really don't care for rubber anymore!  I love to see through my stamps so this set was a little more challenging for me BUT...I LOVE the images!

One of my good friends is a photographer.  A very good one too.  She has a birthday coming up so I made this card with her in mind.  She'll probably see this post though and I'll have to make a different one.  Just gives me another excuse to pull out these fun stamps! :)  That line of cameras is actually one border stamp, or I should say it WAS a border stamp.  I cut them apart.  Yep.  Sure did!  But, they were easy to line back up again to stamp them as a border like I did here, so now they are even more versatile.   That string of twine is one of the new ones from The Twinery called Purple Shimmer Twine.  I can't quit using it!

Well, if you are wondering where to get those cameras at, you can see them here and here.  

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you have a GREAT weekend!! I'm planning to stay in Saturday.  We are expecting snow.  I am all about getting moisture, but I sure wish it would come as rain and not snow since it is officially Spring! :)

Take care!

This is so fun and trendy!!! I love that you stamped and lifted one camera up. It draws your eye there and the other thing is that it's the darkest part on your card!!! LOVE that!!! .....I don't need this set.....I don't need this set.....I don't need this set :)
