Happy Birthday to You

I'm happy to have Linda Wilkinson as my newest follower to my blog. Linda, if you have a blog and would like me to link it here, please email me as I couldn't find that information for you.

My card today features lots of stamping. I wanted to use this fun Plaid Builder stamp set from MFT. I used one of my favorite color combos with red, aquas and black.

I hope you have a great day. And as always, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such uplifting comments.

Have a Lovely Day

I'm playing along with the first challenge over at Stamp Nation for their Beach Vacation event. Lots of the design team members used flip flops and I thought this would be a great time to bust out my NBUS flip flop dies.

I used a fun stencil from Memory Box and my sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I'm thinking now that I should have added a thin strip of black card stock to each side of my focal panel. Maybe I'll remake this card with that element added.

Happy Monday!

I'll also be linking this to the current anything goes challenge at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, the Mid Summer challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, the Spots and Dots challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and to the anything goes challenge at Curtain Call.

Christmas Card Challenge #34

It's time for another challenge at Christmas Card Challenges. This week, we have a fun photo to help inspire you, should you desire to use it. If not, that's okay -- just make a holiday or Christmas card.

I took my inspiration from the reds and greens. My green ended up being quite a bit different from the shade in the photo but that's okay.

I pulled out my NBUS WPlus9 Merry & Bright set and had a go with it. I didn't do this set justice but it's a start and now it's seen some ink. :)

You Captured my Heart for Whimsy Stamps

It's Saturday which means that the clear stamp line over at Whimsy Stamps is being featured. I used the Travel 2 -- Happy Travels set for my card today. Both the camera and the sentiment are from this set.  

Please pardon the pink card stock color as it looks really wonky. It matches the ink color much better than is being shown on screen.

I hope you have a great day!
