Wha...?? February??

I cannot believe it's February already!  Wow!  Time sure flying this year already....

I miss hard back books...LOL!  I thought I'd throw that out there.  But I do, I miss holding a BOOK in my hands, flipping the pages, FEELING the pages...now, dont get me wrong, I think the Kindle, and Nook and all are awesome ideas and come in handy.  I see all of the good points about them..(save a tree and all that too!)  BUT...I think im going to go out and buy me a hardback book!  :D...

I did a quick birthday card:





This uses the new StampTV kit Birthday Essentials .  Not sure if I like it with the big polka dotted bow now that I look at it..LOL!  Might have to take that off!! Super easy thought.  I embossed a metal sheet, also embossed gold for the presents and the 'Let's Party' round piece.  Colored with Spectrum Noirs in a whimsical way, as I call it that is!

Well, that's all for right now!  Hope you have a wonderfully creative week!

I went with a monochromatic look on this card,  I showed this one at the STV Release Party too.  The flowers in the background are stampsd with versamark ink and, edges are sponged with white ink, and the flower in lower left front is colored with a distress marker, picket fence.  I love this in the kraft cardstock myself...which is about my all time favorite cardstock, lol!
