Cookie Monster card

My BFF’s kids call me “cookie” (easier to say than Krissie, I suppose) and they both have a birthday next week, so I made the youngest a cookie monster card 🙂  It was super quick, and I stamped a birthday greeting inside.

Gettin’ Punchy

Punch art is definitely something I haven’t tackled too much aside from the usual punching out of stamped images, even more fun when the stamp and bunch completely coordinate, so this month’s  technique camp was dedicated to punch art.  These camps are helping ME learn new techniques, or at least force me to practice them, too!

Today’s masterpiece is a mother’s day card (that I’ll give the option of making into any holiday if the stamper so desires.):
