Happy Birthday Lindsie and No Peeking!

Well, today is the last day of November--WHAT??? I know. I can't believe it either. Today is also my middle girl's birthday. Lindsie turns 11 today! I can't believe that either. For being a tiny 4 lbs., 7 oz. (two months early), she's grown into a beautiful young girl. Happy Birthday, Lindsie!

Getting to be that age, Christmas is fun, but she's getting pretty curious about her gifts. I thought this card was super fitting for her age and I'm going to give it to her with a little somethin' somethin' in it for Christmas. A gift card of some sort? NO PEEKING!

Anyway, onto the card...I'm squeezing this card in for Jen's November Sketch For You to Try. Check out how to play and the EASY sketch right HERE on Jen's blog.

I used the new Peeking stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas for this, paired with some fun colors inspired by some of my favorite Christmas paper this year from My Mind's Eye. Of course, I had to add a little Kraft in there!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Stamp and color things that are inherently "brown" on Kraft cardstock. I love Papertrey's Kraft especially for this. I have an order due to arrive any second. For real.

Stamps: Peeking (The Cat's Pajamas)
Paper: Kraft, Pure Poppy, White (PTI), Sour Apple (MFT), 12 Days of Christmas (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Bracket Die-namics (MFT), Star Punch (Fiskars), Seeing Spots Embossing Folder, Sewing Machine/Thread, Copic Markers, Silver Brads, Jody Boosters
Finished Size: A2


  1. Happy Birthday to your sweet Lindsie! LOVE your card! I really need to try stamping PJ on kraft! It gives the colors a soft look! :D

  2. Happy Birthday, Lindsie. What a great mom to give her such a great card.

  3. Good Q-tip about stamping primarily brown images on kraft - the edges outside the image are much softer looking for PJ than when I stamp him on white, so I'm going to have to remember this next time! :)
