Boy Birthday card and I am now a designer for ...


I am so excited to tell you I was approached by The Paper Shelter to become a design team member!! I am thrilled as they have the most adorable stamps ever! I have completed my first "assignment" with them and I love it, hope you will too (but of course I can't show it until Wednesday when their challenge begins). Their stamps suit my style as they are cutesy which is just my favourite kind of cards to make! If you haven't seen their digi stamps before click on their name above which will take you to their fantastic store!

Ok, on to today's card I've made this for my son's friend who turns 8. I have coloured a Fresh Brewed digi stamp with copics. I love these papers from Kaisercraft too, very Autumn-like (even though it's almost summer here in Oz lol).

FWAB used:
Trent's fence
