It seems like every time I turn around there is another kids birthday party to attend and it is always "mom, don't you remember its so and so's birthday party TODAY"! I always keep a supply of toys r us gift cards on hand for such occasions.

Well, I was in need of a quick and easy boy's Birthday card and thought of the Retro Rocket from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.

I printed the digi stamp on some silver, navy, and white card stock to layer up a rocket shaped card. I ran the silver layer through a cb folder for some texture and used the stamp to cut the shapes out of the navy. Also, I cut the tips off the edges of the sides so that it would sit flat when it was open. Got it done just in time!

Lindsay has a new Funky Forest set available at her shop and both a freebie and a digi stamping tutorial on her blog THE FRUGAL CRAFTER today.

Check out the other design team's blogs for some fab inspiration!
