Fishing for a birthday wish

The Happy Birthday Fish on my card are from a new Hampton Arts stamp set.  The stamp had 1 balloon, but what's a birthday without a lot of balloons, so I cut a few more and added some swirly string :)

I'm entering my card into 2 challenges this week:

The Card Concept - Color Challenge

Happy Birthday - Hearts & Butterflies

I made this card with the sketch and photo in mind from the Fusion Card Challenge, check it out HERE!

The butterflies are from Stampin' Up, sentiment is Whipper Snapper and the pink polka dots are from a Simon Says stamp kit.

Here is the inspiration sketch & photo from Fusion:

Thanks for stopping by, have a relaxing evening :)

Running watercolor horses

I think this will be the first time I'm submitting a card to the challenge over at Casology.  I follow this blog every week and I have been so intimidated by "clean & simple" cards that I just ooooo and ahhh at the wonderful creations for the challenge, but that's all I do.  Well this week the Casology word is Run, so I'm giving it a go, here's my card:

Hope my watercolor horse card is CAS enough for the challenge.  I love the 2 stamps I used here they are from a company in New Mexico that I saw at a stamp show in Golden, CO.

Thanks for peeking in here at my blog today :)

Polka Dots and an Umbrella

I just love this little umbrella girl from Whipper Snapper; she's just adorable.  I made her with a polka dot raincoat, boots and umbrella for 2 challenges this week - the singin' in the rain challenge at Less is More and the Splash challenge at Inkspirational.  Here's my card:

Thanks for stopping by today.

We are supposed to have rain this evening and I'll be singing :)

Here's The Scoop....

Lately I've seen a lot of ice cream cards, make's sense since it's Summer.  Ice cream is my favorite treat, chocolate chip mint for me.  On my recent trip to Tuesday Morning I purchased a Fiskar's stamp set called "The Sweet Life" and the ice cream cones on this card are from that set.  I fussy-cut the ice cream and put some Glossy Accents on it to make the ice cream shine:

As sad as this is we have no ice cream at home and after posting this card I sure am craving some.  I'll have to stop at the store and pick some up tomorrow :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today :)

Happy Birthday - RRRrrrrr!!

I took a trip to Tuesday Morning ( a great overstock store) and as always found some stamps on deal.  This little Lion is from a Hampton Arts stamp set with cute happy birthday images and sentiments.

I chose the colors on the card from challenge 14 at The Card Concept (layering technique) and the design of the card from the sketch challenge at Seize the Sketch (the challenge photos are later in the post). I added Glossy Accents to the balloon, here's my card:


and here are the inspiration photos:

I feel like visiting the Denver Zoo this coming week-end, think I will :)
