Before I talk about today's card I want to tell you about a new Bi-Monthly Blog Hop, called Stamp Review Crew, that I am really excited about! I will try to explain by using the old who, what, where, when, why format.
Who: Stamp Review Crew - a group of bloggers, all Stampin' Up!. Click Here for information and a complete list of the bloggers. It is a wonderful group of very talented stampers. I am honored to be on the list.
What: on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, a specific Stampin' Up! stamp set will be featured in a Blog Hop. Not all of the bloggers listed above will participate each time. So some months will have more stops than others.
Where: Right here Online!
When: The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month beginning December 2nd.
Why: To bring inspiration to you, our fellow stampers.
Our first hop will feature Festive Flurries stamp set. Should be fun!
Now for today's card. My husband had a birthday last week so I created a nostalgic card for him. I was totally inspired by this card of Brian King's. I love Brian's card because of the combination of the designer paper with the Lava Lamp. The paper really looks like the inside of a Lava Lamp! If you don't know much about the original Lava Lamps, you can read more here.
I added some texture and 3 bubblin' hearts for added interest. I didn't add a birthday sentiment. Instead I wrote a long note on the inside :)
