One more Birthday Card

Happy Friday Blog land! How wonderful it feel to have the sun shining, a little breeze blowing & to know that after 5:30pm, I will have 3 full days free to enjoy the wonderful summer weather that has FINALLY arrived! Happy Happy Joy Joy! I feel like a little kid on the last day of school. Of course by the time Tuesday morning rolls around, it will be back to life as I know it.. UGG! Oh well, think of that later! So let's get to the point... Here is another of the birthday cards I needed to make for co-workers this month
For this one I used a digi from Bugaboo Stamps called Scarlette gifts. I love this digi (welll actually I LOVE ALL of Jodie's digi's!) beacuse it is so versitile.. can use for birthdays, just because, Christmas. Oh and guess what else! All Bugaboo digi's are on sale right now, 25% off every purchase! (hurry tho it ends July 5th) Awesome! One more excuse to feed by Bugaboo addiction! I colored Miss Scarlette w/ my Bic markers & colored pencils, used my Cricut to cut the swirls (nearly choked from all the dust gathered on the thing.. need to use it more!) added a few self sticky pearls- think I got them from CTMH & then added a fussy cut stamped flower from The {Stamps} of Life. This one was a fun freebie Stephanie included with a monthly kit, however she has LOTS of great sets to choose from & the Flowers2doodle set matches this stamp. I sponged chalk ink behind the stamped image to add more depth than just plain cardstock.

I was inspired my this week's Mojo Monday Sketch
I am also entering on the following:
Simon Says Stamp, Lemon & Lavender
Stamp Something, Digi Days
Do you Stack Up, Squares
CCEE Stampers, use your electronic cutting machine
Crafts and Me, Birthdays
Crazy Challenge, Beautiful Women

So now I am going to sit here & stare out the window, Longing for quitting time to roll around! Happy 4th everyone! And Happy Canada Day to our friends to the North!
