200th Post


I promised something fun...but I ran out of time. I am supposed to be getting my safety and emissions done on my car and a whole bunch of other things! LOL! Tis the season to be busy! Hopefully I can take some time to put together a fun project. I have something in mind, but it is going to take some time. I did sneak some stamping time today to do the SCS color challenge. I noticed that most people were making snowmen cards and winter themes, so I decided to go for a birthday card to change it up a bit. However, after I was done, I really was wishing I had made a winter card! Go figure! Anyway...I got the idea to give the bugs a hat from the talented Valerie Stangle. She did this a year or more ago and I thought it was darling. I have hung on to my small sayings stamp set and I will never part with it. I love the sayings and the cute small images that come with it. I also paired it with some of the Muirfield DSP. I thought these patterns worked well for a birthday card. I added some piercing, brads and ribbon and called it good! Thanks for fluttering by!
Supplies:]
Stamp sets: small sayings, bugs and kisses
ink: taken with teal, baja breeze, riding hood red, going gray
paper: taken with teal, baja breeze, riding hood red, muirfield dsp
accessories: paper piercer and mat pack, clip assortment, silver brads, foam squares
