Cookin' Up Some Birthday Wishes

My blog has now been transferred to my new custom domain.  So my blog address is now  I will also have a new look to my blog in a few weeks.  I'm so excited!  :)

This card I made is for my brother who LOVES to cook and experiment in the kitchen.  I was trying to figure out how to make the cuts more manly and the designer paper I found is perfect!  I found this little gem of a paper pack at Joanns.  It's called Cloud9 Design Specialty 12x12 paper pack.  It has the most beautiful and perfect blues, turquoise, browns and greys.  I absolutely love it.  I'm thinking about getting another one to have on hand.  It's perfect for boy projects, especially big boy (uh, I mean men) projects.  :)

I don't know if you can really see it in the pictures but I used the Distress Stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder on the white cardstock.  This folder is perfect for men as well.

On the inside of my card I put the 2nd spoon on the measuring cup cut.

There is a new challenge going on over at the Paper Playtime.  I am actually sponsoring this challenge.  To be eligible for the gift (below) head on over to the Paper Playtime blog and submit your project.

A new Simply Crafts challenge this Wednesday and a brand new challenge coming on Friday that I'm doing w/ someone who creates something unique.  It's going to be so much fun.  Make sure you stop by.  I should have videos on those two days as well.

I'm so glad that you're back and have finished school. I've really missed seeing you regularly and will be back often to check in and see all the great things you're creating.
