Some Birthday Projects and *HAPPY NEWS*

First up today is a card I made on Monday. I really love this stamp set-it's perfect for paper piecing. I used cardstock and patterned paper from SEI. I made this card for the JUGS Sketch Challenge #65.


This next project is a gift bag topper. What a beautiful way to dress up a simple kraft bag from the dollar store! I used two {ippity} stamp sets to make this: Now & Always and Just Wanted to Say. You can get them both HERE. All of the papers used on this projects are also from SEI. The gorgeous ribbon is from American Crafts. I made this project for the Unity Addicts Challenge #32. Yes, I am a Unity addict...and an {ippity} addict, a Lawn Fawn addict, and a Hero Arts addict! ;) This bag is going to hold some special scrappy goodies for my mom, who turns 75 this Saturday. I think she will like the bag as much as she likes the gifts inside!

And *HAPPY NEWS*-two of my cards have been chosen in challenges this week! My Doily Thank You made the Top 5 over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge, and my Heartfelt Thanks card was spotlighted at 365 Cards. A huge thank you to everyone who has left me such sweet comments all week long-I LOVE reading them, and I have been leaving lots of comments on blogs all week, too. It's just a nice thing to do, and I appreciate your sweet words. They always make me smile!
