February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Oh my gosh I can't believe that it is BLOG HOP time again!  February's stamp of the month is D1407 Piece of Cake.  I am thrilled with this new stamp set!  Don't you just love it?  For this month's blog hop, you will see artwork from more than 70 consultants.  WOW! 

Today, you have arrived here from Katy Donaldson's Blog. So I'm glad to have you for a minute or two!

I am using the new Topstitch paper pack with Heavenly Blue Textured paper--such a darling paper pack and I'm showing off the Textured Paper because it is our Help Haiti special (buy one, get another free and $2 of purchase goes to helping Haiti) Below is  my artwork--can you tell that NOW I'm in love with the Topstitch papers?:

Mojo Monday #121

OK, this is my first Mojo Monday that I actually posted to the Mojo site.  It is Mojo Monday 121.  Here is the sketch:

My friend Karen (the one who got me into stamping) has a birthday coming up this month and so I decided that this year I would make the cards for my loved ones instead of swaps!  Seems I never get to make cards for those I really want to make them for.  Anyway, here is my card from this Mojo sketch:

The inside says "It's Your Birthday!"
