Elzybell Spark

I love to use pink and green together and it worked out nicely with the Elzybells flowers. I haven't used my mega tag punch much so it was fun to use that again too.
Heather has a "share your spark" challenge using circle elements so I decided to give it a try. I especially like the little chicken pox circles. Kind of clever if I say so myself ;).

A Couple of Elzybells

Horrors! I realized I have never used the Elzybells car stamp on a card. What was I thinking?!! It's so cute and versatile. Now I think it may be one of my favorites. I hope you like these two cards. Have a great weekend.

Happy Anniversary A Muse!

They're having a party!

A Muse is celebrating it's
7th Anniversary!
Congratulations to Linda and the A Muse crew.

In honor of A Muse's seventh anniversary here are seven reasons why I love A Muse:

1. The images are so darn cute!
2. Twinkle stickers!
3. A Muse has the best sentiments (my new favorite is
Life is good).
4. Beautiful ribbon that matches the notecard colors.
5. Cool and unusual notecard colors and designs.
6. The stamps are so versatile and they can be combined
in many different ways.
7. A Muse always has exciting new things to spark our

Here are seven "tiny" stamps that I just love:
Tiny heart, Tiny holly, Tiny gift, Tiny pumpkin, Tiny bird, Tiny daisy and Tiny apple. I just love all the "Tinys."

And BTW, did you notice there are seven "guests" at the party on my card?
