Birthday Card Times Two!


Yeah!  I had a little creative time of my own yesterday!  I decided to do something I rarely seem to have time for these days and that's to play with some new goodies.  The lss I work in had a big sale on the weekend and I ended up with some new stuff though it's not like I need it in any way, shape or form!  I figured that since I got it, I'd try using some of it right away!

I pulled out the new goodies I got from the new Bo Bunny Ad Lib line.  I had the 6X6 pad of paper, the 12X12 sheet of stickers, the smaller sheet of birthday type stickers and the gems.  As it turned out, I didn't use the stickers, but had fun with the paper and gems!  I just love the fun and funky colours and prints in the line. 


I was poking around online in the morning and found the new Mojo Monday sketch and decided this would be a fun place to start.  I often end up loving these, but don't often get to try them out when they're current.  I ended up with 2 cards (slightly different) from the same sketch after taking my own advice that I give in classes that it's just as easy to make 2 when you've got everything out!  I also find I make more other kinds of cards and don't have birthday ones when I need them, so this is perfect!

Well, here's hoping this is the beginning of more creativity of my own as well though I do need to get to work on some more class stuff as well!  At least my kits are all ready for my class for tomorrow night and I don't need to think about that.  Now, I just wish the class wasn't the same night as the Canucks game!

Have a fabulous Tuesday!  It's a wet one around here for sure, but that's to be expected of spring break for sure...
Cheers,

I agree - it is easy to whip up two when everything's already out anyways =) These are super cute and perfect use of the Mojo sketch!
