Helix Get Well Card

March 20, 2016

My husband loves to play video games. He has even introduced our kiddos to a few of his favorites this year. As soon as my daughter saw the So Jelly stamp set by Lawn Fawn, she called the jellyfish Helix, a character from Dragon Quest Heroes game who also happens to be a healer in the game. So when my husband got sick with a cold, I knew I had to make him a get well card using my daughter’s idea.

Reach for the Starfish

March 20, 2016

As soon as I got the So Jelly stamp set in the mail, I knew I needed to pair the starfish with one of the sayings from the Lucky Stars stamp set. Here is the final result.

Peep Hugs

March 20, 2016

Easter is fast approaching. Who knew it was at the end of March this year?!? I ordered the Simon Says March 2015 card kit, because I just could not resist the stamp set and dies. It was about four more dollars for the card kit over just the stamps and dies, so I splurged and got some more fun goodies.
