MCT Favorite Stamp of the Month - and more!

Who doesn't love a sale, right!? Well check out My Creative Time's Favorite Stamp Sets of the Month for May. Both My Favorite Sayings and Just a Note are on sale for all of May! Be sure to check out the great projects the designers have shared while you're shopping too. ;) My project is one I did last summer using  My Favorite Sayings. It was a birthday card.....for ME! LOL I was needing a little boost and this cheered me right up, I have to admit. I hope you like it too!

My second project is a new one, and a fun style I had not tried before. I love how it turned out, but first let me say, this is not my original design. I borrowed it from Julie Hoerber's blog at Out To Impress. She calls it a "joy fold," which I had never heard of, but fell in love with. I think it's so pretty! So, without further ado, here's my version.


The flower embellishment is actually a functional piece ... the right side tucks under it to keep the card closed. Cute huh!
