Good Morning,
Well I am back again with another birthday card. This one is for my best friend's mom. I saw the idea for the card on Sandy Hancock' blog (Udderly Awesome Stamping from the Heart) and loved the colors and the look of the card! I had made a few others with different DSP and different colors, but this combo caught my attention and I knew I needed to make one. So happy belated birthday Momma Jean! Here are the details of this card:
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Garden Gala Designer Series Paper (retired)
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight Marker
Stamp Set(s): Curly Verses (Summer Mini)
Accessories: Corner Rounder punch, 1 3/8" Square Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Star Punch (retired), Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, Pearls, Snail Adhesive and Dimensionals.
This is just such a fun and sunny card!! Thanks again Sandy for the inspiration!! I heard last night from my friends at convention that they made it to Salt Lake City safely and they were already having fun!! Soak up all the experiences ladies, I want to hear all about them!! Have fun!! Also happy birthday to my sister-in-law, Krista! Today is her birthday, and I will share her card with you tomorrow!
Have a great day and stay cool out there!

Hi Blog World!!
I am so sorry I have been MIA for almost five months. I have been working two jobs (one to fund my crafting habit LOL) and I went back to school! It has been a busy time, but I have found that making cards and stamping are a stress reliever for me! It's been the best thing, so while I haven't been sharing too much I have tons and will do my best to try and post much more regularly!!
Well this is a card I made for a really good friend of ours whose birthday was July 2 and I just made her card on July 10. She knew I was soo sorry. Anyway I used the new in colors for 2011-2013, and I snuck in one of the 2010-2012 colors too!! I love these colors together! I originally saw a card like this in March and knew I wanted to do something like this! Sorry I don't know the name but if you do sent it to me and I will certainly give them credit! Circle Circus is one of my favorite stamp sets and I was so glad it didn't retire!
