I made this card for my co-worker Erica. Her birthday was on Friday. She loves to shop, especially for shoes and purses. So I thought the perfect stamp would be one of the Miss Bags Anya stamps. I did a swap and loved how it turned out. Was looking fiddling with a layout and decided to look around for one. I found the perfect one at the Deconstructed Sketch blog. I'm so happy that I get to finally play in one. Although it's not one for a prize I am still going to link it up. If you haven't yet discovered Jen Shults' blog then head on over there and check it out. She's got a sketch challenge each week and if you're ever stuck on a layout and need something fun to use you can always count on her.

Well Mahalo for stopping by. I know I've been talking about posting a birthday candy and although September was my birthday month I just might do something for October instead. Anyhoos, please keep coming back you never know when I'll decide to do it. Who am I kidding, neither will I! hahaha!
