Shut the Front Door!!

I knew sooner or later I'd see a stamp set with this catchy phrase, and when I spotted it at Unity, I had to buy it! When I first started hearing this in tv ads, I thought it was a bit too suggestive, but it's caught on big-time and I guess there's really nothing wrong with it after all. The suggestion was probably just in my mind :) I'm going to put a sentiment inside that says "Someone told me you're having another birthday!"
I used a piece of cool caribbean cardstock, and embossed it with the SB so Trendy M-bossabilites. The door from Unity's Shut the Front Door Itty Bitty was paper pieced with scraps of matching card stock and paper, and I added some gold paint pen accents to the door trim and "hardware." The background is a piece of BG kraft dsp and I stamped it with the Unity Splatters and Stars - all boy Itty Bitty. I'm entering this into the Unity Friends with Flair challenge.

Catch ya later!

Hi Carol, I'm not a fan of that saying either, but maybe we have to go with the times. (don't have to like the times though). Anyway you did a great job on this card: the door, the embossing (I love that ef) and your background paper also.
Also, I'm behind on commenting, but I just noticed your merry Monday card and it is beautiful. I'm really loving the cherry Cobbler paper more and more each day. Your orange card is sweet as can bee and that MWT card is just perfect. Love the piercing and your brads. All winners my friend.

Have a great weekend.

I love the color combi in this card! I think this stamp is pretty cute though. I mean, how many door stamps can you find ? Hehe ;)

Pretty color combo, which makes this card just beautiful. I'm not always about what's in either.

CUTE and love those colors!!! I guess you could probably take that sentiment to mean several different things - but it's going to be great for a birthday!
