Birthday Bloom

Hi friends!  Can you believe it's already March!  The boys turn 2 on Sunday, and while the years have flown, the days and nights have drug on endlessly.  LOL  Anyhow, we tired the boys out at the park this weekend, so I was able to get a little weekend stamping in and actually have a Mojo Monday card ready on Monday morning for the first time in several weeks.  Woohoo!  The month is off to a great start!


It's the first Monday of the month, and that means it is contest time over at Mojo Monday.  Play along with our sketch this week for your chance to win some Verve of your very own!  My card started with a left over die cut and colored flower from my Viva la Verve! card last week.  The flower and sentiment are from the Amazing Wishes and the flower is cut with one of the dies in the Joyful Blooms Die Set.  I added some greenery using the Elegant Leaves Die Set and the coordinating stamp from Bloom & Grow, then added a little detail with a white colored pencil on the leaves.  The papers are from the Lucky Charm collection and I rounded all the corners, added some Swiss Dot embossing, then went a little crazy with some linen thread.  Just a hint of bling at the end with some glossy glaze, glitter and a random sparkly embellishment.

With a new month, there's a new sale over at Verve!  All stamps & dies are 20% off, plus we've got a whole new list of stamps we're retiring at 50% off to make room for new lovelies.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope this fine March day finds you happy, healthy and ready to create!
