modern birthday wishes

a muse family icons birthday card

I am really thinking about bringing back the monthly kit.  I used to do a kit every month that included a stamp set, card stock, embellishments and all the ideas, directions, measurements and instructions that you needed to make two each or four card designs.  Keep an eye on the blog, I think there is a Family Icons kit coming in April.  Would a kit help you make the most of your stamping and crafting time?

What do you think of my first card using the Family Icons set?  Do you like it?  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

I was mixed about the Family Icons stamp set, but I loved the samples in the a muse studio catalog. I also loved the samples I saw at the a muse studio National Conference.  When the set was on the Spotlight SALE this month I thought now was as good a time as any to try my hand at Family Icon cards.

I really gotta go.  I am going to be late for church.  Leave a comment and tell me what you think!
