One Week Blogaversary!

Good morning everyone, hope you all  had a wonderful week and are enjoying your weekend! I would just like to say thanks again for supporting my blog and leaving such sweet, inspiring comments. I love seeing all of your comments and viewing your blogs to see your creations! :)

In honor of my new blog being one week old, I decided to make a birthday card using some cute birthday-themed paper that I absolutely love. The card is for no one in particular, I was just in a crafty mood. :) Here are some pictures of the card:

The pictures kind of look fuzzy but I think that's because the paper is glittered, which you can kind of see in the pictures. All of the paper minus the white cardstock came from The Paper Studio's 4.5" by 6.5" Birthday Extravaganza Paper. Although I wish the paper was a little bit bigger since I LOVE all of the designs, it works well for smaller cards like this, which is 4" by 5" I believe. I then stamped the letters using mini alphabet stamps that I have. While they were only $1 at Michael's (along with the ink pad) they are extremely hard to align, which is why they appear sort of crooked. I tried! Unfortunately the only color ink pads I have are black, white and yellow, so black was the only option as the white and yellow wouldn't of been visible. I plan on getting many more colors and stamps very soon!

Thank you to all of my followers who have supported me this week and given me encouragement and inspiration! I am so glad my blog has been successful thus far. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Stay tuned for my personal "Random Paper Card Challenge." :)
