Happy Birthday to me!


What is better then a down-staff day during a summer day during 4th of July week? It is being down-staffed on your birthday!!!

Yep today is my birthday! Hooray for me!! Of course I am spending this glorious day in my studio making  my own birthday card!

I picked this great color combo of blue, yellow and orange and used my curved snowdrift die to create the curve in the card. Of course I used my favorite stamp set  Reflections by Paper Smooches and a new fav from Simon Says Stamp- Flower Friend.  The saying is an old Hero Arts acrylic saying that I bent to fit the curve. 

I am entering this at Sunday Stamps- the weekly challenge is to use blue, yellow and orange- how perfect! :)

I liked the design so much, I tried it in a few other colors.


Margarita- the pink and purple is for you, girlfriend!


This fun mix was based on this Pinterest card. I just loved the colors. You will be seeing more of this mix from me.

Thanks for checking in on my birthday. Feel free to leave a comment for me on my special day! After all it is all about me!!
