hey...It's your birthday

I needed a quick birthday card and you'd think I would have one sitting around, wouldn't you? Nope.

I happened to have Lovin' from the Oven (Our Craft Lounge) sitting on my desk and even though this isn't really a birthday set, I love the cake and really love the piping bag and stream of icing.

To add the birthday element, I used a candle and sentiment from Snail Mail (Our Craft Lounge)

A touch of glitter to add sparkle and I was done! Oh, how I love quick cards! (you can click on the images to have a closer look)

Hope your summer isn't going by this quick!

Blowtorch Please!

What's better than an adorable 'ol granny to tell you that you are old? LOL!

Isn't she fun!?! She's from Granny's Secrets (Our Craft Lounge) and sure to bring a giggle to it's recipient! I used Sparkly Fluff to make her hair all fluffy and sparklie. Copic markers and Spica glitter pens for the coloring (available at Eclectic Paperie).

Here's a close-up so you can see just how many candles are burning! haha

Well, it's late and this old lady needs to go to bed.
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 4th of July!

It's a day of sparkliers, picnics and parades here in Minnesota! I thought I'd start the day with a fun red, white & blue card created with Bird Watching (PTI). I love these bird houses!

I paper pieced the houses on the right and left and used Copic markers to color the center house.

It was so hard to capture a picture of this card because the bottom of the front is scalloped and shorter than the back. I tell ya, I need to plan for pics when creating. LOL!

I hope you and your family enjoy a day of fun, and sunshine! Even if you're not in the good 'ol USA!

Have a Swingin! Day!

I played in the Featured Stamper challenge over on SCS (Chisty S) last week. I made the card and then month-end hit. You see... month-end is over the TOP busy at work, so this little creation has been sitting on my work table, waiting for me to get home before 8pm so there was decent light to take a pic. HA.

The inspiration card I picked from Christy's gallery is THIS one. It's an adorable layout and worked perfectly with OCL's Swingin' By.

The images are colored with Copic markers and the sky is shaded using Boo and the Copic Airbrush system. The papers are from My Minds Eye, Bloom & Grow line (you can find it at eP).
I hope you're having a swingin' week!
