Happy Birthday!


  Hi, this is June Houck with a little card inspiration using the February card kit.  My doorbell rang the other day and my mailman was there standing in a snow drift at my front door in frigid weather with my February Artful Delight card kit.  He said, "I brought your mail to you because I didn't want to bend this package."  Now I know he probably had no idea what was in the bubble envelope, but I am so grateful to him!  Our previous carrier would fold mail in half and shove it in the box making it difficult to pull out too.  This new guy always has a smile on his face and is always so pleasant.

  I opened this newest kit with my usual awe and wonder and this particular sheet of paper made me giddy with delight!  Yep, I have serious paper issues when the sight of a 6x6 piece of paper can elate me.  I love the arrows, ombre, and the little stars were already die cut into the paper!

  I created this card 100% from the papers, stamps, and die cuts in this February kit.  The ink pad and foam tape (for dimension) are both from December 2013 kit (sold out).  The larger white stars are die cuts.  They are really pretty IRL too with a pearlized embossed stripe and outline.  I used two Paper Smooches "Talk Bubble" stamps for the sentiment and bubble.  And I used Suzanne's fun card sketch:
  Now I know you want some kits for yourself, so check out the Artful Delight store.  There are a few kits from MarchMaySeptember, and November that are discounted, but the other months are sold out.  I have purchased three different kits all at once; that way I take advantage of the discounted kit cost and I save on shipping.  The May kit is a particular favorite of mine; the large "thank you" stamp set alone is worth the entire kit in my opinion, but I also love the bright happy papers.  If you enjoy the chalkboard trend but don't want the expense of purchasing entire collections, then you may be interested in the November kit.  You can also use your supplies and play along with either (or both) of the February challenges (check out the right-hand side bar) for a chance to win next month's kit.

  Happy Sunday!  June

What a fabulous card! Looks like we share similar issues when it comes to swooning over patterned papers - and this one with the stars already cut? Seriously awesome! And speaking of awesome: your mailman! What a guy to brave the weather to hand deliver your special package. Impressed! Happy Sunday!
