It's Birthday Time

Hello everyone,
Thanks for stopping by. It's time for my Tuesday post over at Craft-Dee BowZ. And it's the last Tuesday of the month. Where has January flown to???

I thought I'd do a birthday card for you all. 
Birthdays are always popping up, so it's always nice to see another take on this card theme.

This bear is so cute peeking thru the line of candles, I thought he'd make a cute birthday card.
This card is a pretty quick and easy card to put together. 
And from time to time we all need a quick and easy card, don't we??
I used a yellow base card, next a dark gray panel 
and then a designer paper panel on top of the gray panel. 
Next, I used a digital image that I colored with some pretty and bright colors
and centered it on that DP. 

I originally had a pretty yellowish-gold bow on this card, however, that color seemed to fade into the card background. So I opted to replace it with the teal ribbon you see here. I think that teal color looks great with the bright colors I used on those candles.

Stamps:  Digital - Lily of the Valley , Rubber Stamp - Sentiment - Stampers Anonymous
Paper/Card Stock
: Yellow CS, Dark Gray CS, DP
Ink: VersaFine - Black
AccessoriesRibbon, Craft-Dee BowZ  tool, Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Firefly Alcohol Markers 

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:

Well, that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed my inspiration card, today, but I will be back Friday with an inspiration project for the February 1 challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ.
Hope to see you back here then.

Singing in the Rain

Hey!! How's it going today!!

Welcome back. Today is the start of the latest challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. I would like to share my DT project for Challenge #98,

Our sponsor for this challenge is Polkadoodles and I decided to use Ruby Raindrop Umbrella

Isn't Ruby adorable?  As soon as I saw this image it reminded me of the song Singing in the Rain., so that's how I came up with the sentiment.

I die cut an oval in the panel and mounted the rain behind the panel. I found the rain on the internet and printed it out.

My clouds - I have a stencil of a cloud that I use from time to time. I traced it onto card stock and cut it out.and then I cut the cloud in half. It became the perfect size for 2 clouds. I used mounting foam to add them to the card.

I colored Ruby and fussy cut her out, and attached her to the card front

The sentiment is from my computer.

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:

Stamps:  Digi - Polkadoodles - Ruby Raindrop Umbrella
Paper/Card Stock
: Blue CS, White CS
Ink: Memento - Gray Flannel (clouds)
Dies Used:  Spellbinders Ovals sm

With Love

Hey!! Happy New Year!!! How are you today!!

Welcome back. I am so amazed that today is the first day of 2019. Last year flew by didn't it!!! Since it's the start of the first challenge of 2019  over at Craft-Dee BowZ, I'd like to share my DT project for the January 2019 Challenge.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fred She Said  

and I decided to use the Hearts and Roses digi set 

I thought the Roses and Heart image would look nice on a lattice background.
I used silver card stock for my lattice.

I colored the image and fussy cut it out and attached it over the lattice die cut. I attached the lattice on a red CS panel and that panel is attached to the card front.

I added pink glitter to the roses and red glitter to the heart shape.
Glitter always add a fun glitz to anything!!

The sentiment is from the set.
