Moving forward!

Hello!  Hope that you are enjoying the weekend!   I have a couple of cards to share with you today!  I used the stamp set Moving Forward to make these and I must say that I really, really love this set!  It is very near and dear to my heart for a couple of reasons.  One being that I just love it.  It is simply adorable!!  Second because this is Stampin Ups! Ronald McDonald House set.  They support the Ronald McDonald House by sharing proceeds from the sale of this set with them.  The Ronald McDonald House is a wonderful organization.  It provides housing and support for families while their loved ones are in the hospital.  Not so long ago I found myself utilizing a similar sort of housing arrangement when someone that I care very much about spent time in a hospital.  We were both very far away from home and this similar organization was very helpful for me.  So, I encourage you to please, please buy this set!!  It will benefit lots and lots of people when they may need it the most!!   Ok, onto to the cards!

Chevron patterned background, banners and a cute sail boat all say boy, boy, boy!  This is a birthday card for a little guy!  I paper pieced the sail by stamping the image onto the DSP and cutting it out and adhering it to the original image.

I popped up the main image using dimensionals and tucked the polka dotted banners in under there!

Stamps: Moving Forward
Paper: Island Indigo, Very Vanilla and Polka Dotted DSP
Ink: Pacific Point
Punches and Dies: Chevron EF

This card uses the same layout, but the polka dots are in the background  rather than in the banners.  This one is a birthday card for a little lady!

Little bit of pink ribbon completes this card and lots of bling because even  little ladies like sparkle! LOL

These were both really fun cards to make!

Stamps: Moving Forward
Paper: Rose Red, Very Vanilla and Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Primrose Petals, Pretty in Pink and Garden Green
Punches and Dies: Polka Dotted EF

Here is an image of this wonderful stamp set:
