Seizing some Awesomeness...

Enjoying some crafty time, today, and playing with some new supplies.
Here's the design from Freshly Made Sketches this week. Lots of potential with this one!
I purchased this awesome set from My Favorite Things, along with the matching dies; SO cool! They will come in handy for sending "missing you" cards to my three geeky & cheeky boys this year (Amy Tsuruta, you NEED this set!).
Here's what I made:
And, another birthday card for Seize the Birthday, this time using the "toppings" option of B&W:
Candles4birthdays stamp set from The Stamps of Life.
I thought those polka-dot candles looked awesome in black & white. Like a vintage cartoon. Stamping the sentiment on vellum avoided hiding the flames.
Off to enjoy some time outside on this sunny day!
Happy crafting,
