TSG Challenge - I didn't forget!

Sigh, so I've been internet less for the last week at home at least.... so sorry for abandoning the blog kiddies! I haven't forgotten you! Although I do have a tendency to forget about birthdays... Hah. So when I got this set from TSG, I knew it was just perfect for me!

I just got this set recently and I love it already! I've been itching to ink it up for awhile and I'm not sure what took me so long... oh right, life. ;-) Anyways, they're super cute and I can't wait to use it for other cards as well!

To my favorite enabler (*cough*Ren-Yi*cough*), aren't these adorable? ;-) Cuter than robots even?

Ok, back to the card, this card is also for the TSG challenge this month -- to make a non-traditional shaped card.

It's been awhile since I've done anything but your typical sized cards so it was fun to try a different shape!

I pulled my nestabilities out and my circle cutter to make this fun little circle card. I also didn't want to have a seam in the front so I scored the "back" piece of my card and then glued it to the front.

What I like about this set is the ability to substitute either "Special Day" or "Birthday" in the space. :) Makes it fun to stamp in a different color or just write something yourself even. So for once, I decorated the inside. Pretty simply but still... it's the thought, right?


I glossed up that snail shell with some glossy accents since snails are traditionally slimey. At least the ones I used to poke at as a child were...

Stamps: Slow and Steady (TSG)
Paper: SEI (Dill Blossom), PTI(Dark Chocolate, Cream)
Ink: Noir Pallette
Other: Ribbon (SEI), Nestabilities, Circle Cutter, Glossy Accents, Copics
