Off the Wall Craftiness #19 and Happy Birthday Uncle Royce

I made two cards with my new Bo Bunny™ Dot paper that I kept seeing on everyone's cards and then I just had to have it!

The first one I made when my co-mom Linda asked me to make a card for her brother in law (my new uncle) Royce. So I had to make it "happy birthday"-esque while keeping it manly.

Now the fact that I went out and bought two more sets of Hero Arts™ is totally Jenny over at Wee Memories's fault (do you like how I am casting all purchasing blame on other people?). She is a Hero Arts™ hostess and I keep seeing adorable stamps left and right! I did need a new happy birthday stamp and so I picked up the Hero Arts™ CL 139 set . I LOVE it. The paper piecing is also inspired by Jenny's many cards.

I love the way this card turned out.

Paper: Bo Bunny™
Sentiment and balloons: Hero Arts™ CL 139
Pop Dots
Glossy Accents™

The second card I made was for my new Grandmother's birthday. I liked the formatting of the first card so much that I copied it for the second. I picked the colors based on Challenge 19 for Off the Wall Craftiness: light pink, lemon sherbet, lime green. You can see the inspiration photo below.

I bought another new stamp set for this one: Hero Arts™ CL280 which has elephants on it. You didn't know that I LOVE elephants, but you will see it very soon as now I have 4 to play with... three of which made it onto this card! :)

I really think my Grandmother will like it!

Have a great Thursday! I've got to get going on some projects and I've been so thrilled with the response that I've gotten about my video and the giveaway! Thank you all for your comments and encouragement! It is so appreciated! And welcome to all the new followers!
