Happy World Card Making Day!!

Happy World Card Making Day to you!

Plenty of inspiration today, plenty of need for cards, too. Babies being born to friends, friends feeling unwell, friends to thank all around me. I don't need be told twice anyway, when it comes to making a card. Today, I made a total of four (and yes, I kept the baby and husband fed, too)

Got to use many a new stamp, also a new punch or two. I am particularly pleased by the Recollections paper punch I obtained at Michael's - very smooth. Also noteworthy is the hot air balloon stamp by the Shabby Green Door - excellent quality.

My beloved Copics also got a workout. See for yourself:

This card will be entered in the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - it is directly inspired by their sketch!

Also a personal favorite is this card:

Found the ship at Michael's and immediately knew that my new Unity stamps would be perfect for it. The rest, as they say, is history. Love the way it came out.

Little babies ALWAYS get a card from me. The most recent baby arrived on a stormy evening of September 30 and here's his card.

I just HAD to make this card once I saw the cute Imaginisce stamps in the $1 bin at Michael's. The vision of it has been haunting me for over a week. There, I made it...

Have a splendid day!
