I was so excited to see an alphabet set!!!  I see lots of personalized cards and gifts in my future!!  :))  This card just came to me one night and I had a ton of fun making it!!  I cut out the balloons and then heat embossed the letters with white embossing powder, I heat embossed wit white for the "birthday" also.  The dp is from the Blizzard Pattern Paper Pack, I wanted a card that could be used either for a female or male, in thinking about it now, I should have tied a knot, not a bow!  ;))

I've been wanting a mitten set and Becky's is perfect, I just love it!!!  It is a lot of fun to create with!!  I don't have a Cameo yet so I fussy cut the mittens but I don't mind doing it.  I wanted to create the look that they were hanging, the button was sitting on my desk and set the tone for the color scheme!


Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
