Have a beautiful birthday...

Hey there!

I'm very excited to have been invited to guest for Your Next Stamp this month and I am up on their blog today with this sweet birthday card. They offer so many cute styles in their range of stamps that it made it hard to choose which ones to play with. The first set to completely win me over was this delightful Swan-derful set. It is full of mamas and papas and cute little baby swans in a variety of poses, perfect for building all kinds of beautiful nature scenes. I masked a bunch of them together to create an idyllic early morning swim, where they encounter a pair of curious fish during their search for a buggy breakfast. The sentiment is one of six that comes in the set and I really like how it plays off the idea of these freshly hatched babies enjoying their own birthday.

Alrighty, well thanks so much for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow with my second make for Your Next Stamp. :)
