Practicing Creativity

A very Gallic birthday greeting

This very Gallic, very French, From the Heart's French Mustache Birdbrain digital stamp just makes me smile. He's soooo French...with his beret, scarf and baguettes. I don't know why it is, but digital stamping doesn't seem to have caught on here in France. I don't know of even one French digital stamp online shop. Do you? If you do, drop me a line, I'd like to find one. The paper is from Sassy Design's Liberty digital paper pack.

This is a birthday card for an English speaking friend who I'm sure will appreciate the humor. I used Heather BTN font for the sentiment.

This is the blog premiere of my new Toga Polaroid die. The banner and arrow are also part of the die. I have the feeling I'll be using this one a lot.

  9. Haha, judging from the other commenters I'm not the only one who's been living under a digital stamp-hiding rock up until now! Love this card -- it's so funny and what we tourists deem to be typically French. They'd probably hate it, though, right?
