Lily and Milo!

My last post told you about these adorable new stamps that I discovered. I was only able to show you the little girl, Lily. Today's card includes her sweet friend Milo. What a cute couple they are! The name of this Stampavie stamp is called For You and I was able to purchase mine from The Stamping Cottage. The sentiment stamp on this card is from the Stampin' Up set Lots of Thoughts and then I used my Stampin' Up's oval punches with it. The colors scheme for this particular card is from a challenge that was posted on the blog, A Spoon Full of Sugar. The challenge was to use blue, pink, and green. In this case, I used Stampin' Up's Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, and Old Olive.

I learned something new (at least to me) from my friend Robin. She made a card using 1/2 inch circles to make a scallop-like border on one of her creations, so I tried it out. I like the look that it created on the bottom of my card. Thanks a bunch Robin! I didn't have the right shade of pink buttons so I punched out two Pretty in Pink cardstock circles and added them to some clear buttons that I had in my stash.

I'll be back tomorrow with this week's Blogger's Challenge. So glad that you could stop by today...Toodles! :D
