Goody-Goody Gumdrops It's Your Birthday

I made this card back in Sept. 2009 for a friends 50th Birthday. She thought it was pretty funny.
I don't remember which sets the "50th" or "it's your birthday!" came from but the "goody-goody gumdrops" words and the gumdrop stamp itself came from a set called Goody-Goody Gumdrops. It was offered as a Hostess level 3 stamp set in the Spring-Summer 2009
Stampin' Up Catalog.
I'm also pretty sure all the colors I used are retired now along with the brads. But the Dazzling Diamonds glitter is still current. :)

Fun with Cherries

I made this card for my daughter's best friend on her 16th Birthday a few years ago. She really likes cherries. On the card I did some white heat embossing for the Happy Birthday and then some red glitter on the cherries. The  paper colors are Real Red, Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, and Whisper White. I also made a Star Album for her birthday present. 
I found the cherry ribbon at a local craft store. The stamped cherries are from the Just Jawing stamp set that is retired SU.

Cherry Flipflop Album

Front Cover
I made this flipflop album back in Sept. 2009. I had been stamping for almost a year at the point and had gone to a class on how to make these. I loved it so much that when the Halloween paper came out and it had cherry's and skulls on it, I couldn't resist. I love cherry's and skulls. I was so proud of myself cause this was only the second album I had ever made. I don't remember that name of the paper anymore but I know the colors are Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Whisper White. I also used a build a brad at the time to make a skull brad on top the red flower. Most of this is Retired Stampin Up product now but I'm still hording a little bit of this DS paper. :)

Rainbow Yarn Hairfalls

These are some hair falls I made from yarn and ribbon. I wore them when I went with some friends to the Pride Parade in Seattle a few years ago.
