A card:

Last month I received this darling card from my DDIL. Well it was from my son, too, but Kimberly made it. Isn’t it just the cutest!

She wanted me to be sure and mention that she got her inspiration from this adorable card by BeccaP on Splitcoaststampers. Kimberly has not been stamping long. I think she is just so talented. I plan to show off some more of her cards in the future. 🙂

The stamp set used here is called “Unfrogettable” from Stampin’ Up!.

One of my favorite blogs and stampers in the whole world is Sharon Johnson (notimetostamp). Every Friday Sharon has a “Stamp Simply” challenge on her blog. This week she has challenged us to use paper piercing. Well I have NEVER paper pierced before so decided to take some baby steps and give it a try.

Can you see it! lol The flower made from the scallop punch is something I saw over on Beate Johns’ blog. Beate posted a scrapbook page that her friend Cheryl Simmons had done. I thought it was so cute and clever.
