Happy Birthday

Happy Wednesday!!!! Well good news is we did not lose power yesterday so Yay for that!!! Also i am pretty proud of myself I got every single piece of laundry washed and put away I don't know if this is a struggle for you like it is for me but it is really hard for me to keep up on laundry I do it but it usually stays in a basket folded and that's about as far as it goes!!! I will get to the card I know it did not come hear to listen to laundry talk.
This card was a reject for a call so I guess I can share it here now I used Technique Tuesday's Message In A Banner love this sweet little set I also used a sentiment from Hero Arts the Dp is crate paper which is perfect for a Boy Birthday card!!!

A Sweet Annabelle Challenge!!!

Second Post!!!

I have one more card share for you today!!! Awhile back I discovered Annabelle stamps over at SCS such a wonderful enabling place SCS is anyways this led me to the Annabelle blog which in return I won a gorgeous Christmas stamp set during one of their releases. So now to the moral of the story love the stamps!!! Looking around their store I found this little cutie how sweet is she!! So now that I got me some of their amazing stamps I decided to play along with their monthly sketch challenge and this is what I came up with for my card using Crate Paper
and this Lil Belle stamp called Lil Molly's Flowers. It's been a long time since I used my Copics and I still need alot of practice and I almost forgot how fun they are to color with so I did a little coloring along with some paper piecing.
Hope You Enjoyed!!!

Flutter By Butterfly

Happy Tuesday!!! We are gearing up here for our next big snow storm that's supposed to hit tonight!!! I have a quick card to share using The Stamps Of Life again I think it's called Butterflies2Build I will double check on that it's the monthly stamp club set. Along with this stamps I used some Basic Grey Hopscotch collection I did some paper piecing and I also pierced some holes for the little butterfly trail so cute!!!
That's it for my card really!!!
Enjoy your day!!!
