Silly Birthday Card


Good Morning!

Today I am showing you a bright and silly birthday card that I created for my 3GirlJam post (go visit me over there and leave me some lovin'!)

Anyway, I wanted to create a cheerful and bright card and I loved this sentiment from the Stampin Up! set, Bombs Away.  I'm not sure how I feel about the new polymer stamps from SU, but I certainly did love this set.  This would be a good card for one of my friends at work that just HATES to tell anyone her age.  

The doily, punch used to make the delicate butterfly, and cute little pearls are also from SU.  I made the flower with 3GirlJam Ice Blue Crinkle Ribbon, from the Hot & Cold Bundle.  Of course, this time of year, I'm choosing the "Hot", because I'm ready for more summer fun!  The center of the flower is a button from Pinque Peacock from their new May release.  Isn't it just delicate and wonderful?

While I was in Spain, I found myself inspired by all the bright and cheerful colors that dotted the  landscape.  Visiting a heavily populated area, it was interesting to see that so many people had bright summer flowers in little pots hanging outside their apartment windows.  No matter where, we all want a little color to brighten our days.

Anyway, hope you like my card today and it inspires you to make something bright and beautiful.  Have a wonderful weekend.  I'm going to be torturing myself with a half marathon on Saturday morning!  But today, well, I'm going to

Enjoy Today!

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
