So by now it is no secret that shades of brown are my favourite colours. I like them for my clothes, for decor, and for cards. I think these shades make great baby boy cards, too. In fact, had I had a baby, I would have decorated the room in these shades of brown. Think classic Pooh.
So here I have used Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Barely Banana as my palette. I am thinking of making this as my swap card for Stampin' Girls convention in Ottawa this weekend, but I'm not sure if OTHER people will like it...so I am asking for your HONEST opinion...do you like it? It is OK if you don't, I won't stop visiting your blogs or anything.

Another co-worker asked me to make a card for the woman who breeds the dogs he is getting his puppies from. He said she is being super amazing, giving the puppies all kinds of extras to bring home, so inside I stamped "You are Ter-RUFF-ic!" He picks up his puppies on Saturday, so hopefully she likes the card. Stamps: Puppy Love(CTMH)
CardStock: Taken with teal, real red, white
Ink: Taken with teal, real red, chocolate chip
Acc: Red grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

I decided to pull out stamp sets I haven't used in a long time. Here I used Enjoy Every Moment. I added a sentiment from It's Your Birthday on the second card.
I random stamped the background on both cards in turquoise, pumpkin and green galore.
My co-worker gave this really retro looking paper, reminds me of the Christmas wrapping paper from when I was a kid. She is a Christmas FANATIC, so I made her this recipe card using the paper she gave me. This is the outside....
and this is the inside. The recipe is for Lemon Squares.

I never seem to have enough birthday cards on hand, and I just adore my clown set, so I took it out again! What a difference colour makes, huh? Compared to the baby clown cards I did earlier.
I LOVE Bold Brights for kids cards!

I really like this set. When it first came out 2 summers ago, it was not very popular, but I LOVED it! It is one of the few retired sets I have kept. When done in pastels, it makes great baby birthday cards. When done in bold brights, it's great for kids.
I used It's Your Birthday to create the backgrounds on these cards. I used 4 of the stamps and random stamped all over.
