Birthdays ROCK!

This is a jumbo paperclip that I altered to be a gift card holder. I love these new images from MFT! This set is called The Poppies, and it's this month's release from Stephanie Fizer. When I saw it, I immediately thought iTunes gift card!!

Well, I had this paperclip just sitting around, so I thought that I could alter it for a cutie little gift. The paper is some MME, and I also added some velvet scallop ribbon from Creative Cafe, that I glitzed up with some Stickles.

Below is the close-up of the image...

I colored it with Copics, and added some embellies from Stamping Bella and some Primas. I also added some silver cord and a BG button to the flowers.

Again, this set is available now on the website at the ink above!

Now for a personal update....

I've been slacking on my stamping responsibilities lately, and here's why - we're SO stinking busy AND I can't for the life of me find the one and only cord that enables my computer to connect to my camera! I treasure that thing, because I'm not able to use anything else - it's not just an ordinary USB cord, and my computer doesn't have slots for memory cards. SO, today I had to use Dave's computer to upload the pix by jimmying my memory card into one of the slots (and to get it out, I had to use tweezers!!), and then email them to myself! Ack!

In addition to that, I can't find my photo box!

So, I have to figure out another way that delivers some decent pix, but that doesn't require MONDO amounts of TIME!

In other news, I've passed my test to be hired for the agency, so that I can work as the school nurse at Wyatt's school! That's good news! LOL Dave's still working on our new bathroom, and we're having a blast playing with the horses and kids! I'm currently watching the kiddies play on the Slip and Slide. Good times.

Till later...



  1. this ROCKS! super cute card!

    congrats on passing your test and the new job!

  2. This is a great idea, Kirsten, and it came out super cute! I feel for you with the photo issue. Any kind of computer problems really throw a monkey wrench into the works. On the whole, reading back, it sounds like you're adjusting well and actually having a pretty good time. Glad to hear it! Life is such an adventure!

  3. I'm just a *little* behind on my commenting, but I wanted to tell you that I think this is a fab idea. I would have LOVED to get this when I was a kid!!! Great job!

  4. This is SOOOOO cute! I love the idea of the pin to hold a gift card! And your coloring is fabulous!
    Congrats on your job at the school! :)


So what do you think?
