I am not going to say this is my favorite new stamp set in the catalog, but it definitely ranks up in the top 10. I love the complete versatility and simplicity of the "you rock" saying, it works for birthday, thank you, thinking of you, congrats, retirement and more. I love the idea of a rocking chair. It is whimsical and fun, plus you can color it in with Blendabilities. I have rediscovered the fun of coloring that I had as a kid with Blendabilities. I have more colors on order! Can't have just one ya know. 

The Alphabet Press TIEF I did a direct to paper with the Pear Pizazz ink pad just to punch up the background a bit. 

Who "rocks" enough to receive this card?

Happy Birthday using Age Awareness

For some reason when I pulled out this stamp set I saw "flap card". Not sure where that idea came from but that is what I saw. The flaps are 5 1/2" inches long, scored X. Attach the flaps to the DSP layer and attach to the base card. There is still plenty of room to write your greeting on the back side of the flaps.

Love the cute Kind Koal in this stamp set. And yes, I get to color it in using the Blendabilities!!! 

I did not cut the circles in half, but rather used them whole.
