Ahoy, Birthday Boy!

Ahoy! Wouldn't it be awesome if we all used this greeting more often? My inner pirate wants to bring it back. Anyway, remember how I told you that I stamped all weekend and didn't end up having much to show for it? Well here is one of the cards I made that I like but don't love. I made it for Luke, the little guy that I nanny for. He and Sophie are turning 4 in September which I CAN NOT believe! I"ve been taking care of them since they collectively weighed about 10 pounds, so it's been amazing to see how they've grown over the last 4 years!

Stamps: PTI Tiny Treats Birthday, PTI Bitty Baby Blessings Paper: PTI Lemon Zest, PTI Spring Moss Ink: SU So Saffron, SU Bashful Blue, SU Pear Pizzazz Accessories: PTI buttons, PTI Mat Stack #5 Die, PTI Lemon Zest Ribbon, Dollar store twine, SU Scallop border punch
It's a pretty straight forward card...Nothing too fancy. I love the PTI Tiny Treats Birthday set because EVERY image in the set is sooooo stinkin cute. And they lend themselves well to being colored in. Which leads me to my other new obsession- Copic markers! Leave it to me to find the most expensive crafting tool and absolutely NEEEEED every.single.color. Well maybe not every color since they are approximately $5.00 a pop and there are hundreds of colors...but you get my drift. They are like potato chips- you can't have just one.

Hey Jaime! Love this entry, super cute! And copics is totally an addiction. A good site to order them from is oozak.com, cheapest I have seen and quick/free shipping.

Hey Nicole! Yes, you and Kendra told me about oozak at SAF and I've already placed and received my order! How sad is that? AND I already have my next order planned out for when I have more funds! I wonder if there is a 12 step program for Copic addiction???
