My Pink Stamper April Blog Hop

It's all about Birthday's this week!  I had so much fun checking out the My Pink Stamper Design Team Projects tonight!  What a talented group of ladies!  The theme is Birthday in honor of Robyn's daughter Katelyn and her 13 Birthday...Happy Birthday Katelyn!  I decided to really step out of my comfort zone for the challenge tonight and actually challenge myself.  Anyone who follows me, knows we do a lot of pink here at My 3 E Scrapbooking.  I have 3 girls, so naturally we make a lot of Girl Projects.  Tonight, I decided to challenge myself and make a boy birthday card...GASP!!  What do you think?

I think he turned out pretty cute!  I was grabbing whatever was on my desk tonight!  Now, the first time I saw the (SQUISH) stamp on Buggy Punnies, I was sad.  I couldn't imagine squishing any of my cute cricut creatures.  Then I saw one of Robyn and Karlee's videos, and that is the word they use for HUGS...HOW CUTE!!

This turned out great! I love all the texture you used on it---I have a little boy, so that's what I add to a lot of my layouts for him, since the sparkle/ribbon/girlie stuff doesn't work quite as well!! Good job!!! :)

You are so creative. This is one of the cutest cards I have seen in a long time. I love the face. I like the placement of the twine. I never thought of using twine in a card. thank you for such great ideas.
