Happy Birthday Jake!

I made this card for a very special young man, Jake, who had his 8th birthday this week. He is one unfrogettable kid : ) !! And this is one Unfrogettable stamp set : ) !!! I sorted through my stamps yesterday and pulled out a few retiring sets that I may be willing to part with, but this is definitely not one of them. This is one of my favorites and it will stay in my stamp collection for a long, long time...maybe forever and ever, lol!! Here's the inside of Jake's card ~

My daughter Megan's been spending a little time in the stamp room. She's a big fan of the Unfrogettable set too...here's a creation she whipped up yesterday morning (it has my watermark, but it's her card). I swear, it's effortless for her! I love her cards, always bright, colorful and full of bling : ) !!! This one will be going to one of her friends...so she got to make it girly...pretty cute, huh? This stamp set is so versatile, it can leap from a boy card to a girl card by just hopping on over to a new color scheme, changing the embelishments...wha-laa, a toad-aly new look (oh...excuse the puns...it's late and I can't help myself, lol!!!).

I'm gonna keep this post short since it's 12:45 (pm) and time for some ZZZZZs ... THANKS so much for stopping by...nite : ) !!!

Wow....2 amazing cards.

I really like Megan's.....it's busy, blingy and the colors blend beautifully!!

You can really make the inside of cards work so well. I'm still working on mastering that technique.

Incredible stuff from you AND Megan .. as always!

Nancy, your creations are always to well balanced in the area of color and elements! I would have never thought of putting a circle button with two square buttons like you did, but it adds just the right amount of interest in that corner. Those colors are so fun, and love how you decorated the inside of the card too!

I would have never thought of putting eyelashes on the frog to make him a girl (or transvestite?) ... way to go Megan!!!! Hope you're feeling better?! Been prayin' for you, girl !!!

Nancy, these cards are so cute and fun. Makes me wish I had the set. Isn't it amazing how kids just create without all the worry that we adults have? Good job Megan!
