Birthday Cupcakes


I used "cupcake thief" by Mo Manning for my card today.  I've had this stamp for some time and love making birthday cards with it.  I am entering this card into the challenge at Seize the Birthday;  the topping option this week is Something Sweet.  I ask you, what could be sweeter than 3 cupcakes :)


Thanks for stopping by today.  A cupcake sounds good, may have to make some :)

Time to sparkle and shine


Freshly elegant is the challenge at The Card Concept this week.  I took inspiration for my card from the photograph given as inspiration.

Received the "graceful faerie" by Poppy Stamps in the mail yesterday (along with a few additional fairies) and placed her on this card with Stickles on her wings.  The flower die is from Memory Box and I cut this with MFT gold paper.

Here is the inspiration photo:


So happy you stopped by today; lovely Spring day today :)

Flowers for your Birthday


Took a trip to my local stamp store today and bought a number of items I just couldn't live another day without :)  The flowers on this card are from Spellbinders, sentiment from Papermania and he squiggle border from Taylored Expressions.  I colored the flowers with my Zig marker, just love these markers.

I am entering my card into 2 challenges this week:

Casology - Loud
Case This Sketch - see the sketch below


Thanks for stopping by today :)

Muse Challenge #217


I made this cute, little box card for this week's challenge at the Muse Card Club.  This is my first attempt at making a box card and I'm happy with the result.  I found a YouTube video by Sandi McIver showing how to make a rectangle pop up box using 8 1/2 X 11 paper, wrote down the instructions and Viola!! a card was born :)

Here's the adorable Muse card by Kim Heggins:


I know I will be making many more of these boxes, they are all that and a bag of chips :)

Thanks for stopping by today, it's a good day to be Happy!

Freshly Made Sketches #289


When I look at the pretty woman dancing outside it makes me happy; I love this set from Stampin' Up. I put Zig makers to paper, daubed green and blue ink for the grass and sky and added little flowers for my card that I'm submitting to Freshly Made Sketches for this week's challenge.

Here's the sketch:
So happy you stopped by today :)
