today's challenge on 365 Cards (yes, that site seems to be a favorite of mine, wouldn't you say?) is to make a birthday card for a boy - not a man. i borrowed a couple of animal stamps from my friend rieca while she's away on vacation with her family, and this was the perfect time to get them out and play!
i got these fantasticly cute animal print papers months ago and sadly they went straight to my stash instead of getting used. the giraffe stamp i borrowed is so cute! i cut out the birthday greeting to look as if he's saying it. a cute touch, if you'll allow me to toot my own horn for a minute! (grin)
and now it's time to go and do some serious work. i signed up on ETSY a while back and have yet to setup my store. i want to give it a go and see how my cards and other stamped products sell. gotta bring home some bacon while i'm not working!
