It is a rainy ugly day here in Newfoundland today - and after all the PILES of snow its making an icy slippery mess !! A lovely day to stay inside and get some stamping done ! But alas, I have to work. Hahaha I did pop down into my Stamp Room last night though to create a card for the Catherine and Cathy Create January Card Challenge !! The theme this month is Birthday Bo-nan-za !! You know now that Christmas is over, its the perfect time to stock up on some Birthday cards !! I don’t know about you, but it seems like somebody’s birthday is always sneaking up on me, and its always great to go to my card stash and pick out a card if you don’t have the time to make one right on the spot, right ??
For todays card I used the CUTE new set from the Occasions Catalogue, Another Great Year. Its SO cute and I love it !! If you haven’t seen it yet, please pop over to my online store and have a look at it ! And if you don’t have one of the fabulous Occasions Catalogues (and don’t already have a CANADIAN demonstrator) please let me know I would love to send you one !! So, take a look at this sweet card !!
Isn’t that just darling !?! I am so loving that HUGE birthday sentiment !! And the cupcakes ?? Too cute ! This color combo of Soft Suede, Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Coastal Cabana is so soft and delicious, love the pastel look after all the Christmassy colors !! Hahaha And of course the Ruffled Stretch Trim adds even more feminine cuteness. I used my Aqua Painter (very VERY carefully) to color my cupcakes. I know, I know. I didn’t use Watercolor Paper OR StazOn ink - but I really wanted the outline of the image to be in Soft Suede - so I was super careful to use minimal water and stay away from the ages as much as possible. I think it turned out great !!
Well thats it for me today !! Please come over to Catherine and Cathy Create and check out the GORGEOUS cards the rest of the Design Team came up with !! And play along too !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
