Special Day

Today is kind of a special day here at FP3.  It's the 2 year blogaversary!!!  Two years ago today I posted the very first words to this blog.  Now, over 330 posts later, and over 150 followers (through combined methods), here we are!  Come back next week - I'll have a blog candy to celebrate!

I've found myself intrigued lately, by the cards I've been seeing with the stamped image on kraft colored paper.  I decided I really wanted to give that style a try, and this card was the result.


I used the adorable Whiff of Joy Birthday Girl digi, which I colored with my eclectic mix of colored pencils (Prismacolors, Crayolas, super cheap no-name brands).  I wanted a bit of patterned paper in the mix, so I used a 2" punch to cut a circle in the top layer, and then cut the sentiment (one of my own) out with a 1.5" punch.

  2. Oh this is gorgeous! I've been thinking of trying that technique too... Just need to stop being chicken. I keep telling myself that if it all goes wrong, it doesn't matter, I can try again, but so far... still chicken! lol.
