Fun X's 2

Another pre-post today. I wanted to be sure to share some samples with 2 new stamp sets being released today over at CHF. There are 2 new sets from the Tom Fun Collection, Birthday Surprise and My Pets II.

Here is one of my samples using the Birthday Surprise set.
I had so much fun with these images! I was on a square card kick when I made these cards. October Afternoon finally released their long awaited paper so I couldn't resist using this pattern from "Fly a Kite". The little letter stickers are also October Afternoon. I sandwiched the letters between the 2 Spellbinder circles, letting the edges overhang.
tip of the day: to keep the letters from sticking where you don't want, dust the backs of the stickers with baby powder!
My second sample uses the My Pets II set. All the animals in this second set are cute! Hubby has a thing for frogs so using this cute froggie was a given.
I cut the clouds by hand from some scraps of white wool felt. The paper is Cosmo Cricket. Sadly, the sentiment is one I all too often can use. I drop the ball way more than I like on dates and things. Argh...being lame stinks! Cute cards and groveling can really help a girl like me, lol.
That's it for me. Blessings,

Hi Tracy, love the background paper and stitching on the first card, and the frog card is so cute with the stitching on the grass, and the felt clouds, how creative, hope your still doing well. Blessings to you, Rea
