Whimsy Pair

I recently purchased the cutest Making Memories "Scrapbook Project Pad" named Whimsy. The 8x8 papers came with all sorts of embellishments including ribbon, flowers, chipboard, buttons and diecuts. At over 1000 pieces it was a steal at Tuesday Morning for FIVE BUCKS.
And did I mention it's C U T E?
I pulled it out yesterday afternoon and decided to grab a couple of sketches to work with.I chose the My Favorite Things SCS sketch for my first card. And didn't notice until I started writing this post that I had mixed up the sketches. I intentionally used a Verve stamp on what I thought was the Verve sketch. But it was the MFT sketch instead. OOPS! The card is still cute and fun.
And will be a great card to send to a friend going through a particular trying time!

For the next card, I used the Mojo Monday sketch! The Mojo Monday sketches are always a treat. They are one of my favorites!
Using the same Whimsy papers I made a birthday card for this sketch!
I love how the cupcake (from the $1 Michael's stamp bin) and the Wish with candle (Unity) went together like they were made to! Paper piecing is always fun. Since I lack those marvelous markers (whose name starts with a C and ends with a P) *sigh*, it's a good alternative to coloring at my house! Remarkably, my camera actually cooperated and let me get a decent close-up!

That's all from me for now! I hope to stamp again today!
I'm having a blast!
