Happy Birthday!



Hi kiddos!  
I hope you've been having a wonderful week so far, if not, no worries it's almost over!  :)
Since joining the Peachy Keen Stamps DT I've been having so much fun playing with my Copics and Spectrum Noir pens!  I had forgotten how much I enjoy coloring and just how relaxing it is!  :)  

So today I wanted to share a card the I made for one of my brother's birthday using my favorite stamps and dies from My Creative Time and Peachy Keen!


Isn't this chef adorable!!!  Of course the sentiment is perfect with it!  The "type" font is awesome for any project!


Now I'm sure you've been seeing the new burlap paper from DCWV.  Well, I've been on a mission to use what I have, and too reduce my supplies before buying something, that I think I just have to have :)  (hopefully this will last )  So I took some burlap ( I have a ton of it), ran it through my Xyron and adhered it to thin card stock (like Recollections from Michael's). Then I ran it through my Big Shot with the 
XL Label die.  Voila...burlap paper!
