Birthday Wishes!!

Good Tuesday Morning!!

I'm so happy that you dropped by today! I have a fun little sample for your crafting pleasure. I've used two Hero Arts sets that I recently received from ABC Toys & Crafts. Isn't it too cute? I am seriously infatuated with owls lately, and this particular owl happens to be one of my new favorites. I love the delicate flowers on his wings. And how yummy is that branch that he's standing on? I feel like these images go ever so perfectly with this Cosmo Cricket Early Bird DP that I've been hoarding for about two months now. The owl and branch images are from a Hero Arts clear stamp set called Asian Elements, and the sentiment comes from a Hero Arts clear stamp set called Birthday Messages. Both sets are on sale right now for $12.75!! In fact, everything at ABC Toys & Crafts is 15% off until July 18th - with flat rate shipping of $6.95 for orders under $70, and FREE SHIPPING for orders over $70. How awesome is that?! Oh, and did I mention that this is the first time that I used my Janome Sew Mini sewing machine on a card?!! What a blast that was - I will definitely be using that baby on a regular basis for sure!!

STAMPS: Asian Elements (Hero Arts), Birthday Messages (Hero Arts)
INK: Rich Cocoa, Pear Tart, and Lady Bug (Memento); Summer Sunrise (PTI)

I can not believe that you where under the weather when you created this, I can't imagine what you do when you are feeling great. As always beautiful.
