My Thoughts Exactly DT Thurs

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great week! We are doing pretty good. The days just seem to fly by here. I need to try to blog more.

This week, I have my first DT Thurs post for My Thoughts Exactly. I had a great time working with these stamps. Right now I only have two sets, Holly Jolly Tags and Under the Sea. I had a lot of fun trying to combine these sets to make some birthday cards that can be used all year long.

My first card uses the ornament from Holly Jolly Tags as petals to a flower and the sentiment from Under the Sea. It's a little bit of a stretch. Perhaps next time, I'll use the back of the of the paper for just the shape. But it kind of comes out fun, don't you think? The paper is My Mind's Eye.
My second card is uses a tag from Holly Jolly Tags and the same sentiment from Under the Sea. I turned the tag upside-down to make the ornaments look like little trees. They would also be cute if you made them into lollipops. The paper is Echo Park and the twine is Cotton Candy Divine Twine.
Be sure to check out the My Thoughts Exactly Blog for all the other DT cards. Have a great day, friends!
