Birthday Wishes!

Hello there!! I hope you are doing well!
I am here with a fun quick card that could easily be recreated and mass produced!! It could also easily be adapted to boy/girl with the colors you choose!!
So, I stamped the balloon from It's My Party set and then masked the balloon and used a polka dot stencil to make the green confetti! I used distress ink and an ink blending tool to create the confetti...super quick and easy!!

Hope you have a super duper one!!! Take care!!

Let's Party!!

Good morning!! Today is the fun TAWS blog hop!!!
It will be SO much great will love this release!!
I saw these cute birds in the Flap Happy set--isn't that the greatest name!!?? --and thought how fun it would be to put them sitting all together on a wire...So I drew a wire, stamped all the cuteness, colored and then added the fun sentiment from the BIG time set.

Here is a little close up of the details on the birds....a bit of glossy accents on the glasses, and some on the beaks too!! And what bird is complete without a bit of shimmer!!?

Hogs and Kisses!

Hey there friends!! Good morning! I hope you are doing well!! I am happy to be popping in today!! We've been in a bit of a whirlwind the past husband accepted a new job and we are relocating our family!! It's been a super fast move, today our house is being packed and by the weekend we'll be on our way down to the Portland, OR area!! It's been a whirlwind...we will all miss the many people we've come to love like our family...oh, my heart!!! BUT, we are thrilled and SO excited about our new adventure. My husband accepted a position with one of the three companies he has always wanted to work for!!! So, all is good. All is crazy.
Ok, onto the reason you stopped by today! I've got a question, HAVE you ordered your 
Penguins on Parade yet!!?? I seriously can't tell you how many hours these Penguins have been busy at my house!!! My girls will NOT leave them to rest!! They've been really busy making as many different combinations as they can...oh, the fun!!!
I pulled the sentiment from Oinkers... I figured the muddy pig....had to do it!!!

Have a good one dear ones!! Thanks a bundle for stopping by!!!

Just a note...

Good morning!!! Happy Saturday again!!
I'm excited to be stopping in with another new Retro Sketch! The summer is skirting by...just days remaining until we "get" back to usual!;)
Here is the new Retro Sketch for the week!!

I decided to grab these beautiful blooms from Julie's Essentials by Ellen line. I used a bit of gold foil on the blooms...oh, be still my heart!!!  I used some gold foiled cardstock at the top and bottom of the card. I have to stay again...I LOVE the beautiful fonts of this stamp set...don't you love it!?

I hope you have a great weekend and I can't wait to see what you do with this sketch!!
