So are you excited for the January stamps yet? I sure am! I hope you have headed over to Hanna Stamps and placed your order!! I am playing catch up with my card posting -- today's set is called "Hay Hanna" which has farm animals and the cutest country Hanna in her adorable cropped shorts (think Jessica Simpson in Beverly Hillbillies). This card was inspired by the sketch on the Card Positioning Systems Blog (Hi Tami *waves*). I loved CPS97!

How Old??? Birthday card

The idea for this card was in my head as soon as I saw this cows eyes. He reminds me of the movie Bedtime Stories, not because his eyes are too big for him, but just the way they seemed to BUG OUT at me. Anyway, I thought they would look perfect with googlie eyes to make a funny card. The layout for this one came from Splitcoast -- Sketch Challenge 211.

Bedazzling Hanna

This last card was inspired by this awesome paper. I was browsing in my local scrap store looking for something different to go with this farm set, and I saw this denim paper with flourishes and thought it was pretty and feminine and would be perfect for Hanna. As I was creating the card and adding flowers and gems I decided it looked like jeans that had met with the bedazzler, hence the name. Pink paper flowers were colored with copic ciao markers to match the color more perfectly.
