A secret trick to "not stick" stamps
Forever Blossoms - Card Tutorials

To Color or Not to Color, That is the Question...

To Color or Not to Color, That is the QuestionAnd the answer is---either is fine. It so happens the evening I was creating this cute card I was pretty tired and so lot's of coloring didn't appeal at that monent...so I designed this cutie without tons of coloring..however, if I were doing it this afternoon---I'd probably pull out all my Blends and go to town coloring. 

From all of us

The fun thing about the line drawings is that you can create really great cards without having to do tons of coloring--just depending on how you feel at that moment.

This stamp set "From All of Us" is really great for sending a group message to someone...however, you can use it even it if is just from you--the Happy Happy Birthday, and Thanks verses are just fine coming from one person...and who won't get a chuckle from these little critters all huddled up together. So have fun either from the group or from just you!
