SSS June Card Kit

Have I ever mentioned how much I like Simon Says Stamp card kits?  I'm certain I have.  Yeah...I have, here, here, here and here

At this point you're probably hoping I shut up about them.  I don't blame you.  It's kinda like when someone tells the same story over and over again in an awkward social gathering type thing that pretty much is every social gathering I've ever attended.  You sit through the story just to be polite while rolling your eyes when you think no one is looking,  At least that's how I picture it. 

Uh, thing is, you're not the boss of me!  I'm going to tell that story again, because I want to and you'd want to too if you made cards like me with these stinking cute kits

Truth is, I had a hard time embracing the mustache concept that riddled this month's theme.  I'm not a fan of the mustache or anything that has to do with facial hair, no matter how kitchy it is.  I know it's not about that, but what is a mustache supposed to remind you of anyway?  To me, it's ugly facial hair.

So, today I set aside some time for just me and really went through each piece of paper and every stamp of the stamp set.  You know what, I ended up really loving the stamps and paper and with them I made a couple cards today.

The little chipboard heart wasn't included in the kit.  It was from my stash and I colored it with a Spectrum Noir marker.

This is the second card I made.  My favorite part is the glasses.  I coated them with a layer of glossy accents so they look like real lenses.  I just think it's super cute!  What a great card to give to someone just to let them know you're thinking of them.  Those are the best cards, in my opinion.

Notice there are no mustaches on my cards...insert winky face  ;)
