Happy Birthday Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!


Note: this is my SECOND post for today. Please scroll down for my post for this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.

November 9th is the second birthday of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and we are kicking off the celebration with a blog hop to showcase the debut of the Sunbeams!

I gave you a sneak peek of Caitlyn (with the birthday cake) in my October 25th post. My card today showcases Owen. You can just feel his delight as he rips open his birthday presents. I can totally relate! (The sentiment is from Birthday Buddies.)

My card also follows this week's sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop. I don't make long cards very often, but always find it fun when I do! I made sure this would fit into a standard envelope, so it's 4 x 9. Why don't you come along and play with us this week? You can use any stamps you want!





Be sure to hop around and visit the rest of the Design Team to see more Sunbeam goodness!

I'm also very proud and happy to announce that effective today, I am officially a Sr Design Team member for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Woo hoo!!!

Thanks so much for hopping by. I hope you have a sunbeamy day!

Woops, I was trying to delete the duplicate comment Teresa made, but now it seems like I was trying to censor her. Not true! I'm just a blogging dork!

Good Monday Morning Lisa! Sorry I didn't get in on this blog hop yesterday--I had internet problems all day and was too frustrating so I gave up.
