Yesterday I revealed the first card I created for Demo Day at PhotoScraps. Today’s reveal is my second card, again featuring the same stamp sets – Deck the Halls by Taylored Expressions and Christmas Sampler by Paper Smooches.

Here’s a look at the inside. I used a coordinating paper from the I Love Winter Collection by Echo Park Paper Co.

Oh Carp!

Yeah, we’ve all done it! Realized after the fact that we’ve forgotten an important birthday. One year I completely forgot my husband’s birthday. Definitely an “Oh Carp!” situation. Luckily for me, he lost track of the date as well and didn’t realize that it had been his birthday until the next day when he was surprised by the sudden appearance of cake and ice cream.
