Personalized Cards + Sweet Stamp Shop

Happy Monday to all of you! Thank you for the warm welcome on my new blog, I am happy with it and am finding blogger a little easier from the set up standpoint, especially for a novice like me. Before I share a couple of fun cards today, I wanted to mention a super fun new stamp line coming in August. It's called Sweet Stamp Shop, maybe you've seen it...if not, I'll tell you that Nicole Rixon is the designer behind the incredibly adorable stamps. I think you will like 'em too! And if you "like" them on Facebook you could win all the stamps (8 sets!) that she is releasing in August plus a guest designer spot, awesome!!

Anyhow, today I have some fun cards to share with a concept that is fun to incorporate for a special occasion. Our family welcomed a new little niece to the family at the beginning of the month, and her name is Aubrey. My brother and SIL did not know if the baby would be a boy or a girl until she arrived so I waited to make a card for her. I thought it would be great to incorporate her name in the card, so I used PTI's Fresh Alphabet set to do so, easy and fun...the set works especially well when the name does not have any repeat letters.

I made another card for my brother when he graduated with his teaching credential this past spring, this time I used the computer to make the personalized greeting before stamping the apple and congratulations. I made the rest of the card super simple since it was for my brother! I love how it turned out though!

Thanks for visiting with me today, have a great start to the week!!
