Hey Guys

Sorry for the delay in posting my project for SCRAPPY MOM Stamps.  Blogger decided to be a "BOOGER" and would not let me post a darn thing for two days... but in the true spirit of "I WILL NOT BE BEAT !!! lol.
I found a new way to post. :0) Took some time to figure out but never the less... I AM BACK POSTING !!

I would like send a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone one who stopped by and left such sweet comments on FRIDAYS post.  I am having a blast be the guest designer this month for SCRAPPY MOMS and hope that I will inspire you to do something creative today.

As I told you on Friday.. The HAPPILY EVER AFTER stamp set is the lastest release from Scrappy Moms Stamps and is prefect for the "little princess" in your life... I have 3 not so little princesses in my life so finding sentiments can be challenging...but these stamps make the challenge so much easier.

I wanted to totally go "OUTSIDE THE BOX" and make a card that could be used for either a boy or a girl...

So here is what I came up with for you today...


I think it is so stinkin cute..if I do say so myself.. I think this card would be great for a boy or a girl with just a few embellishment and color changes.

The sentiment is PERFECTO....

Thats one of the things that I love most about Scrappy Moms Stamps they are created with such love and the sentiment work wonderfully with those everyday moments in each of our "MOMMY LIVES"... :0) If you havent had a chance to check out all the amazing stamps that Melanie and Tammy have created I urge you to go take a peek over at SCRAPPY MOMS Stamps.. Like I said before the hardest part is which ones you will choose..

Well that is it for today as I mentioned the other day I am giving a prize away for every Scrappy Mom post in the month of May so for today's prize I will be giving away ...

If you have never used these you are totally missing out... These little wobbles make any project come to life.

So how do I winner... Well leave a comment in this post and a way for me to contact you when you WIN... If you would like to become a follower just click the link to the right and join in on the journey...You just never know what might happen..
