Sherrod Studio Blog Hop

Hey everyone!  It's time for a blog hop!  My friend Kim from Sherrod Studio Stamps is hosting a blog hop to celebrate the re-launch of her stamp line.  

Here's a little info about the reasons for the re-launch of the line:

Hi There!
This is Kim. I started my stamp line a year ago but decided to take some time off to due to personal and business decisions that I needed to make. As life would have it, things started happening. First we got burglarized and without insurance we couldn't replace important things that were taken, then a couple of days after that we had a financial setback. My hope in launching the new stamps and bringing back old favorites is to raise money to help our family get back on our feet again. We are grateful to everyone we know who have given us so much love and support as we work our way back to feeling safe and secure again.



I have made two cards for this blog hop.  For the first one, I used the "Gamer" set.  Isn't it perfect for any little boy?  I made this card for my nephew.  I will likely use it for his birthday (next March), but I didn't put a sentiment in case I need to use it for another occasion.

For the second card, I used the "Rock and Roll" set.  My favorite uncle (and godfather) plays the guitar and his 50th birthday is July 7th, so this was perfect timing!  I just love the flourishes around the guitars and music notes!

Lauren, Both cards are great. The fun gamer with the primary colors is so perfect and love the rock and roll card! The colors and dimension with the borders and cut outs really makes it pop.

OMG....that first card would be perfect for my son.....that is ALL he wants to do! Video games! Great card!

SO cute! I love both of them, you are really good at boy cards, they are fabulous!

Lauren, great job on both cards. The little boy and the primary boxed design are so perfect. The music card for the guitar player is very clever using the cut outs and frame layout.

Hugs, Martha

Love the colors in your gamer card. The rock 'n roll card looks awesome. Your uncle is going to love it! Rock on:)

I really like the "swooshies" around the guitar and the music notes! And the gamer card makes me giggle. It looks so much like the original nintendo I grew up playing :0)
