Just a Number and Washi Tape

Hello friends : ) Before I begin my lengthy post I would like to welcome my newest follower and neighbor! Barbara Campbell owner of "My Creative Room" blog ... ok.... she lives almost 400 miles away but at least she we are in the same state!! LOL Please blurf over and enjoy some good Wisconsin creativity!! : )

I mentioned last week that I have borrowed the Close To My Heart, "Just A Number" (D1514) stamp set from my friend, Theresa, and I wanted to make some birthday cards with it.  I love this stamp set.  It is funny without being hurtful and I can think of so many people who I could send these sassy cards to that I made some duplicates!

 I also wanted to dip into my growing stash of Washi Tape.  I keep buying it and not using it but find I still want more LOL so I challenged myself to either start using it or stop buying it! I am pleased with how these cards turned out and feel I have proven to myself that I simply DO need more Washi Tape! heehee

 I love creating card series of similar colors or themes to use as gifts.  I might just have to do another round of these cards for a gift for a friend of mine

Aren't these funny? I hope you have enjoyed them as much as I have.  Thank you again, T for letting me borrow your stamp set. : )

These funny cards have helped me get back on track in my goal to create 100 but I still have 22 cards left to make with only 23 days left to make them! woohoo this has been a fun challenge and I can not tell you how much I love and appreciate each and every comment that has been left! I really mean that! I wish I could give my BLOG CANDY gift to every commenter and follower!!

If you are new to my blog and don't know about it please see THIS POST for all the details and how you can have a chance to win my CANDY simply by commenting on this post.

Have a great day friends!

I do not have the details on any of my Washi Tape - so sorry : (
Large Butterfly was cut and embossed using a Cuttlebug duo
Smaller butterfly from the last card was cut using a Sizzlit die
Ribbon, sequins, gem stones and Twine from my stash
Flourish stamp in the last card is from an old TAC stamp set
