It's a Forgotten Stamp Birthday Hop!!


Today we are celebrating my friend, and fellow MFT teammate, Barbara Anders' birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with a blog HOP!! The hop started at our ring leader's, Tammy Hershberger, blog. If you didn't start there, better head back to the start!! There are a TON of talented ladies along the way, so if you are here now, you should have come from Julie Koerber's blog.

Since it is Friday, it is ALSO Forgotten Stamp Friday time, so I kinda threw them together! Not familiar with this challenge...well, you should be!! Every week, I challenge myself, and all of you, to make a card using your poor, lonely, dusty, unused, forgotten stamps. I feel guilty with the sheer VOLUME of stamps that I own in comparison to what I ACTUALLY use, so this challenge is one that helps me to ease my guilt a little. There are NO rules, just that you
b) use a stamp that is either unused or owned and un-inked for 6 months
c) come back and add yourself to the linky thingy so I can see what you've done
d) be sure if you upload to SCS, that you use the keyword FSF22...that way I can find you!!

For my card tonight, I used the SUPER CUTE Pure Innocence- My Balloon. I stamped her on a piece of X-Press It Blending Card. I then colored her with my Copics, and layered her with Orange Fizz, Baja Breeze, and Hot Fudge. I used the MME Stella and Rose Hattie collection. Both my ribbons are from MFT, and my brads are from Michael's. I used the AWESOME Stacked Open Scallop Die-namics, as well. My sentiment is from the Clearly Sentimental About Birthdays set.

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great time on the hop!!! Next stop on the birthday train: Frances' Blog! YAAAY!!
