Happy Birthday Card

Hello, how is your weekend going? We've had some lovely sun for the last 3 days but it's still cool out there. I'm glad to finally see the first day of SPRING tomorrow...

I'm playing along with the color challenge at the The Play Date Cafe again today and combining it with the 'Party Time' Birthday theme happening at The Shabby Tea Room celebrating their 1st birthday. There are all kinds of prizes, so make sure you check it out.

Here is the color inspiration:

Here's my card.

The flowers are from Prima, brads are from sei, sticker sentiment is from SRM and embossing folder is from Stampin' UP/Sizzix.
Thanks so much for dropping by. Hope you enjoy your weekend.

Thanks card

Time for another Play Date Cafe challenge. These have been so fun and so good for me as they get me out of my comfort zone and I'm forced to used colors I usually wouldn't put together.

Here's the inspiration for this week:

Here's my card:

Patterned paper is from Webster's Pages, sticker is from SRM, flower is from Prima, button is from Doodlebug, border punch is from Stampin' UP, embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.

It's Spring Break here, but it really does not feel much like spring. It's dark, and dreary. I simply can't wait for the warm, sunny days and the spring bulbs to start peeking through the ground.
Thanks for dropping by.

Orange and Yellow...

I came across this beautiful color challenge at CR84FN blog. I seem to be drawn to yellow lately. Craving some sun, I think. Here's the inspiration:

And here's my card.

The background paper is from Sampin' UP, yellow paper is from Webster's Pages (tea cup and birds are part of the paper), sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink, ribbon is from Michaels and the brad is from SEI.
Keeping it short and sweet tonight. Have a great evening.

A Splash of Yellow

Today, I'm playing along with The Play Date Cafe where it's color splash week. You get to choose one of the colors in the inspiration photo to feature on your card.
And Moxie Fab World where this photo is the Tuesday Trigger this week.

When my youngest daughter was a toddler, she loved the colors yellow, but I really never have...till recently. Lately yellow has been fun to work with. I love the bright cheery feeling it gives.

The Prima flower is the last in the pack! It's been in my stash for years. The embossing folder is from Stampin' UP, ribbon is from Michaels and was wired and a bit too wide for the panel. Once the wired edges were off, I really liked this frayed look. Brad is from Making Memories and sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
Thanks so much for dropping in today. I hope you've had a wonderful weekend.

Saturday Morning

And it's a rainy one. I suppose that's better than snow, right? Not much planned for my day besides being 'taxi mom'! So it's so nice to be able to start the day with a bit of creativity.

Today's card is based on the color combo (cream, red, black) at The Shabby Tea Room and the sketch (130) at Clean and Simple Stamping blog.

Here's the inspiration image at TSTR:

Here's my card:

The patterned paper is from K&Co., scalloped border strip is from Colorbok, label punch is from SU, sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink, and the ribbon is from Offray.
I have a bit of time left before my 'mom taxi' duty starts...enough time for one more cup of coffee.
Hope you have a great weekend.
