Although Brandon's birthday was back in May I thought it was appropriate to share this sweet 'Wild Birthday' card with you today :) The sentiment is from the Wild Birthday set and the adorable giraffe is from our Wild About You set. I also used the balloon stamp from Flying High Fhiona :) I stamped it out onto colored card stock and then embossed the entire balloon with clear embossing powder to give it a shiny balloon effect - FUN!
Have a super fab day!

I just love this image! Fairy Fhiona looks so cute with her wings on and I had so much fun adding the little crystals for the fairy dust floating out of the magical wand. And of course she has glittery wings - as you all know by now, I love anything that sparkles!
Since I'm in a 'fairy wishes' mood I thought it would be fun to give everyone free shipping until Friday! WOW! How cool is that! Coupon Code is shipmefree - just enter this code at checkout and your shipping will be totally on us!
Tomorrow I'll give you a sneaky peeky of the Teacher Fhiona sets and then since our DT call ends on Friday I'll keep the fun going with the launch of our new Halloween Fhiona stamp sets and cool Halloween goodies along with our new Teacher Fhiona stamp sets :) FUN!
Have a magical day!

When I was a child I was terrified of Halloween masks and all the houses that played the creepy music on Halloween night. My son Brandon (15 months) on the other hand thinks all these creepy masks and eerie displays are rather funny! We walked by a display in the mall that had a rather grotesque witch and goblin, I proceeded to walk faster thinking to myself, oh my I hope he doesn't see this, but he did see it and proceeded to point and laugh at all the display characters! It was actually quite adorable and all the people walking by thought he was the funniest little boy with his crazy chuckle. I think he would have taken them home if I let him :)
So with all the Halloween costumes and displays out in the stores I thought I would celebrate this wonderful Monday with a little sneaky peeky card. I call it 'not so scary' because that little ghost is just too adorable to be scary - just the way I like them! I'm sharing with you a really simple card with one of Fhiona's little friends - I couldn't let you see her in costume just yet! The candy stamp used for the background paper is one of Fhiona's favorite treats! YUM YUM!
Stay tuned for the launch date of all our Halloween stamps and goodies. Later this week I'll give you a little glimmer of the Teacher stamps as well :) FUN!
Enjoy your day!

I got thinking...my customers who LOVE it if I gave them a great sale too!!!! So I decided to have a CRAZY weekend sale just for you! Now I totally understand that it is summer and people go away on the weekend so that's why my sale doesn't just last 4 hours but all the way until Monday at midnight EST - WHOOOO HOOOOO!!!!
25% off your entire order - I know crazy!!! That is why your code to redeem this crazy offer is 'crazysale'! Just enter this code during your checkout process and voila you get this crazy discount!!!
This is my way of saying thanks!!!!

We have just released some single images from our moving sets and baby sets. Fhiona is our adorable little girl who just loves different adventures so she will always be sold with her fun little images as a set but we thought you might like some of the other images as individuals so you can mix and match to make your own set! COOL!
