I needed more cards for kids, so I decided to pull out one of my favorite sets, Fox & Friends, and use it with this week's sketch from The Paper Players. I added in a few things from my recent order and I think the old and new really worked great together on this card. The Stripes embossing folder is great for just about any type of card and look at that super fun sentiment! Isn't that the coolest font? I love it!
I also added in a special element, the number. What's so special about a number you ask? Well, that number symbolizes what I love about Stampin' Up! and being a demonstrator. As some of you know, I was on the Creative Crew design team on Splitcoast Stampers during much of the summer. I had the honor of working with some great ladies, but one of them became so much more. Kathy from Stamping Still is now one of my great friends and I enjoy our emails so much. She's all the way over in Australia, but that doesn't matter thanks to technology. She has created some adorable cards that have the addition of numbers on them and I had once commented that I loved that special touch. Unfortunately, I didn't have the dies needed to do that on my cards. Well, one day I open my mailbox and guess what was in there? A whole bag of numbers that she had cut for me and one of her beautiful cards! I cried of course. :) That's why I love being a demonstrator. It's not just about selling stamping supplies, it's all about the bonds of friendship.
Now before I leave you, I'll share a picture from last night. Someone totally took over my spot on the couch. :) He's such a silly boy!
