Sending You Birthday Wishes--SPDSS19 and CMCC No56

January 31, 2015

WOW!  It is the LAST day of January!  How did that happen?!?!?  It seems we were just celebrating Christmas.  I must admit, January is my least favorite month, so it is behind us now.  I guess it always seems long and dreary after the holidays.  We made it through the month without any bad weather, too.  YIPPEE!  

I am playing along with the SugarPea Designs sketch challenge and the Colour Me...! Color Challenge!  I absolutely LOVE the vibrant, playful colors this week.  --Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight and a Neutral--
I am the biggest fan of ALL the stamps sets at SugarPea Designs.  I hope you will enjoy my card!

We have seven February birthdays in our family, so I have someone special in mind to receive this card.  This little penguin is so happy and he makes me smile!  I paper pieced his little hat and used all the colors in my coloring with Copic Markers. The gingham paper was found in my stash.  It if from a retired Stampin' Up Designer Series Paper called "Gingham Garden."

Wink of Stella adds a hint of sparkle to this little guy.  Wouldn't you just love to receive this little fellow in your mailbox?

Thanks for stopping by and if you have time, please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  I love to hear from you!

Until next time--

Get Well Soon--FMS171

January 30, 2015

It's Friday and I am so excited because my dear friend, Angel is coming to craft with me ALL weekend!!!!!  YIPPEE!  I am so looking forward to a fun and creative time with her.  She always inspires me!  

I made a speedy quick card for a friend that has been under the weather.
I love the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  It is a fantastic sketch to use on any card.

In keeping with using some things that I have, I pulled out an old paper pad from My Mind's Eye for my patterned papers.  I used a Lawn Fawn stamp, On The Mend" that I bought a year ago and never inked.  I hope you will enjoy my card.

I cut a slit in the top of the tissue box and added a kleenex for fun! 

Thanks for stopping by.  If you have time, please leave a comment.  I love to hear from you!

Any questions, please contact me at: Claire.

Have a great weekend!
Happy Stampin'!

Happy New Baby-PPA237

January 25, 2015  

It is a sunny day in GA.  You can't ask for much more than that in January.  It is a little chilly, but so happy to see the sun shining!

We are off to the airport in Atl. in a few minutes to pick up our dear friends coming to visit from Chicago.  I know they will think it is warm here.  

I ran into my craft room this morning to make a card for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  It was a fun sketch this week and I just had to play along.

I always need a baby card to send to new Grand parents or couples having new additions to their families, so I made a generic baby card.  You can never go wrong with a rubber duckie and yellow and blue.  It seems the trend is to not find out what the baby is now, so this card will work for either sex.  

I am on a quest to use things that I have been hoarding.  I love the Flower Pot Designer Series Paper and everyone that knows me, knows I adore polka dots!  
Night of Navy is the perfect accent color for Crushed Curry!

I wanted to leave the rubber duckie white to draw your eye to him.  I just added a little orange on his peak and wings to accent him.  Pearls make everything better!  I hope it doesn't look to girly this way!

If you have any questions on my card, please contact me at:Claire.

Leave a comment if you can!  I love to hear from you!
