How Many Fingers are You?



Isn't this a funny stamp? I purchased it for half price this summer and finally had a chance yesterday to ink it up and create a few silly birthday cards. My inspiration for the layout came from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. Her sketch was just the spark I need to get started again.

Don't you think this whimsical designer paper is appropriate for the childish image? I did some random stitching around the edges and attached the cutout circle and flower with dimensionals.

My friend Michele's mom celebrates her 80th birthday this week so I'm sending this to her. I think it will make her smile, don't you? :) I sure hope she doesn't think I'm being a wiseacre! LoL

It is such a pleasure to be creating again. Thank you all for your words of encouragement. Your comments inspire me!

Happy Day! ~ Pam :)
