Enabling: Kenner Road

I thought I would share another card of mine with you.  This one makes me laugh because unintentionally I made a Christmas birthday card for someone whose birthday is November.
Perhaps it is the red and white color scheme or candy striped ribbon?  Regardless, I hope the person I sent it to felt a little more jolly (ha, ha) from receiving it in the mail. 

One of my missions in making this card was to use one of my many Kenner Road stamps.  I compulsively collect buy these stamps.  They are beautiful vintage style stamps that are included in the swoon-worthy Kenner Road kits (I have never swooned, but I imagine it is something akin to the loss of breath from the excitement and joy I feel just looking at these kits).  If you love paper crafting of any sort and have a hankering for vintage go check out Kenner Road.  This is vintage loveliness at its best and the lady--Kerry Lynn Yeary known as kl--who lovingly designs the kits (when you see the kits you will know she puts a lot of care into creating them which can only be described as love) is an awesome paper craft artist.  kl has a great blog: live. craft. learn.  

Be inspired and don't blame me too much if you can't stop yourself from subscribing.  I admit it: I am an enabler.
