Happy Birthday

It's been a while since I've made anything blog worthy but I have lots of new things that need to be inked up, so I am trying to get out of my funk.

My stash of birthday cards was non-existent so, where better to start? I grabbed my Simon Says Stamp set from the Color of Fun release and a sentiment from a cute Paper Smooches set, and got busy.

Add a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins and you've got a pretty biirthday card.

My inspiration was this card by Barb Dengler - 

 I should have stamped the sentiment first, then the flowers, but I was having so much fun with those flowers I guess I got a bit carried away. I couldn't get the leaf overlays to look right no matter what I did, so I ended up just leaving them off.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and not suffering the same oppressive heat we've been having for the past few months. Ugh! Is it autumn yet??


  1. Yay!!! You're making cards again, and you made a winner too!

  2. Welcome back! I just dug myself out of a funk, too. It's so nice to stamp again, isn't it?

    I am in awe of people who can use those flower builder stamp sets. I just don't have that gene, I guess.


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your comments.
