Daydream Believer

Hey everyone! Happy Thursday! This morning I woke up with an idea for Jen's SFYTT challenge, so I went directly into my stamp room and made this quick little card. What a great way to start a morning! My nephew turned 13 this week and his party is on Saturday. I've been trying to think of a card I could make that wouldn't be too childish or two girly. I think I found the perfect mix today. I pulled out some of the Daydream paper by Studio 8, and took my color inspiration from there. I stamped the Happy and the Birthday from Happy Thoughts towards the bottom of the Nestabilities rectangle with Basic Gray ink. Next I stamped the large stripey star from Seeing Stars on the grey patterned paper in Basic Gray and punched out with the large star punch from SU! I was only going to do the one star, but I smudged ink on the corner when I was gluing down the grey star, so I quickly stamped the smallest stripey star on the gold patterned paper and punched out with the small SU! star punch. The narrow strip is cut from another section of the patterned paper and glued across the whole card. In the corner I added three screw eyelets I found in my stash the other day. Pretty simple, but I think he'll like it!

Okey dokey, time to skedaddle. I have lots to do this morning, and then my friend Cindy and I are going to have a virtual stamp day this afternoon. We put out headsets on, chat on the phone, and stamp together across the miles! We haven't done it in ages, so I'm really looking forward to it.
