As Another Year Flies By...

Today was my day to make the post on the DRS Designs blog. You can find all of these stamps on the DRS site found here.

I love it when stamps are versatile! Today I'm showing 3 very different cards using the sentiment "As another year flies by..." (F489)

For a close up view of any of the cards, right click on the photo and open up another tab or window.

When I first saw this sentiment, I immediately thought of birthdays. These candles crack me up because they look like they're flying. *~* So I just had to use this sentiment with them!

Other stamps: Birthday Candle Burst (L451)
Paper: ballet blue, real red, white
Ink: black, Copic markers
Accessories: Top Note die cut, eyelet, ribbons, brads

This 2nd card was made as a sample for the CAS challenge I hostess on Mondays: Show Off Your Bling
It was a very popular card! I was so excited!

This card can really be used for anything.
* Bee Day
* A let's catch up letter to an old friend
* A joke to a friend of family member who keeps putting off retirement
Let your imagination take a cruise!

Other Stamps: Bitsy Bee (A1020), Polka Dot Flower (F336)
Paper: white, black
Ink: black, Copic markers
Accessories: Stickles, pop-up dots, eyelet, ribbon, rhinestone

Two of the bees are popped up. Why? The same reason I do lots of things... to hide mistakes! *~*

This card was sooooo much fun! (You'll have to wait awhile to see my other plans for the witch's accessories... LOL!) I thought this verse fit well because it looks like she is done for the night (Halloween) and she's gone to bed. Only the cats and bats are out.

Other Stamps: Witch's Accessories (K154)
Paper: white, black
Ink: black, Copic markers
Accessories: Martha Stewart cat, bat, and drippy goo punches, pop-up dots (for the bats), gingham ribbon
