Happy Birthday

Hi friends.  I got some new Papertrey goodies the other day.  The sketch at CAS(E) this sketch! was perfect for the fun new die that was just released.  I am also entering this card at The Play Date Cafe, the colors are black, white and Neon yellow.  My paper is from a Neon pack but it doesn't look as neon to me as the ink does.

Also entering this over at Moxie Fab World : Birthday celebration.

I played around this morning with this sketch and the same supplies but used my ink pad to make my own Neon paper.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Hi friends.  Quickly popping in today to share my card for this week's StampNation challenge.

This week was a sketch challenge and it was based off one of the cards I made for one of my trends articles.  Here is the sketch:

Fun right?  I love seeing how everyone is inspired by a sketch.  You can pop on over to Catherine & Maureen's blogs and see how they were inspired.  We would love to have you join us at StampNation.

This card was for another SN challenge.  The challenge was to use black and white paired with one other color to make a bold statement on your card.  I love this die from Lil' Inkers.

Summer card camp Week 1 Days 3 & 4

Hi friends.  Today's card is for the online Summer Card Camp class.  I actually combined yesterdays and today's lessons in one card.  I love the way Laura Bassen used banners on her card so I decided to mask and stamp my banners.  The challenge for today was to used the colors and make your card in 10 minutes.  I have done this before and the trick (for me)  is to not watch the clock.  haha  I finished this up in 10 minutes on the dot.  PHEW!!!!

I am also entering this card over at Simon Says Challenge Blog: Pin it.
& Seize the Birthday: Anything goes.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Neon tag & Week 1 Day 2

**This is my second post for today, please click here to see my other post.**

Hi friends.  I created this card for the Moxie Fab Birthday Creations challenge.  As I mentioned in my earlier post, I messed up on my balloon strings a couple of times on my cards but the balloons were stamped perfectly.  I couldn't just throw them away so I die cut one out and used it on this little tag.  :)  I also used my neon inks again.

This card is for Day 2 homework.  Joy Taylor shared a simple technique of stamping sentiments on your strips of cardstock.  I CASEd her design only switching out the sentiments and the die cut.  This was fun.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Neon Birthday wishes

Hi friends.  My card today is for Moxie Fab World: Birthday Creations.  The challenge was to follow the sketch and either use all stamping or no stamping on your card.   I chose all stamping.  I also decided to use my Hero Arts Neon inks to participate in CASology's cue word: Neon.

Here is the sketch:

I have to admit that this was my 3rd attempt at this card.  :(  I just could not get the balloon strings right on the first 2.  I was a little challenged.  haha  But, I will be back later today with a tag for yesterdays Moxie Fab challenge.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
