I had a great time getting cards ready for today. The stamps are by Sunny Day Doodles and are called Be Your Best Self. For some unknown reason, I don't have any of the previous Doodles in my collection. I'm glad to have this set and I'm sure more will find their way into my collection! My first card leaves the sentiment mainly black and white and shows that the stamps work well in a very clean and simple setting.
My card uses the current sketch from Mojo Monday.
One last card for today. The other item being previewed today is a full alphabet and full set of numbers - in the round. They are the Negative Dot Alphabet Die-namics and the Negative Dot Numbers Die-namics. We have a big birthday coming up in my house in less than a month - and the numbers worked perfectly!
The sentiment is from Birthday Sentiments and the background is the Woodgrain Background. The tag is the from the Pierced Traditional Tag STAX. I needed something to top it off under the twine - so I used one of the pierced circle from Blueprints 10 and folded it in half. The star in the circle is also from Blueprints 10. The twine is Natural Hemp Cord.
I have said that one of my goals during my time as a guest for My Favorite Things is to show off colors. Since this card is for a teenage boy, I looked through my color ring and decided to show off Safety Orange. I have to admit that I thought that was a funny name since I would have expected something with that name to be an almost neon orange. But this is a rich brown mustard color. I really like blues with oranges so added Blu Raspberry which is the darkest of the aqua colors available at My Favorite Things. Black seemed too dark so I finished it off with Steel Grey.

See you tomorrow!
