Now, onto my card for the birthday hop!  I just absolutely love the newest addition to Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps......Rhubarb!  He's just so cute!  And since we are celebrating a birthday here, I went with Rhubarb's Cupcake!



Happy Birthday, Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps and congrats to Korin Sutherland on the success of her awesome line of stamps!  Korin invited me to be on my first design team so I will be forever grateful to her for that boost of confidence she gave me and the chance to share my paper crafting addiction with so many fellow stamp-a-holics!
