*i like you berry much*

I found a little time over the weekend to use my new Odd Bird Planet stamps. I became "acquainted" with Johanna (owner of Just Johanna's Odd Bird Planet) over at 2peas when I was very new to stamping. She would leave the sweetest comments on my cards, and being such a newbie to stamping, I was tickled pink to think that someone noticed me and actually liked my work! Recently, I visited her online store and fell in love with her unique, whimsical stamps. Before I knew it, 2 owls, a hot air balloon, a submarine, 2 little houses, an absolutely adorable strawberry hat, a moon, and a few other stamps were in my shopping cart and on their way to my mailbox! Imagine that!

I knew A Muse's "i like you berry much" would be the perfect sentiment for this card, and I love how it fit right inside the balloon. I created a strawberry using the ever-so-darling strawberry hat, and used it again to turn "Al" (the owl) into a bit more feminine version. I used a scalloped oval punch to make clouds, and then I created my own background paper using the lacy oval A Muse stamp (one of my favorites!), the strawberry hat, and a copic marker to make little rows of polka dots.

The count down to A*Muse*A*Palooza is in its final week! There are lots of games and challenges yet to come, so be sure to head on over to the A*Muse*A*Palooza blog to join in the fun! You might even win some fabulous A Muse goodies!
