Here it is another month so you know what that means ...... Blog Hop!  time to visit our blogs, get some stamping inspiration and remember if you leave a comment along the way you will be included in the drawing to win one of the new stamp sets released this month.
Now you know how I pick a theme and run with it each
month......well.....I guess this month I was a little scatter brain because I couldn't make up my mind so mainly my theme is File Folder cards with a different idea thrown in here and there.  I colored my Bearded Iris purple with my Prisma color pencils.  This file folder card is vertical because there is a wonderful vertical Happy birthday saying in this stamp set.  My second card is another one of those floating pop ups.  My new favorite pop up card and it's so easy to create.  This time I did the white wash technique and yes, I colored it in with my Prisma color pencils.  I hope you enjoyed our blog hop this month and got some stamping inspiration along the way.  
Here's the Design Team:
