Meanwhile, I did have to get my stash in gear for all these birthday parties. Here's one card that I made that I think is a very cute card for a little girl. It could also be given to a little boy. The whole card grew out of the ribbon, which I found in the dollar bin at Michael's. I love the color combination of green, orange and bright blue. The stamps are from MFT, Icing on the Cake. I made the background dp using the stars stamp from this set, inking each star individually with Cat's Eye Chalk Inks. If I ever want to duplicate it, it will be easy, as my stamp is now stained with the colors. The images are colored with prismacolor pencils and blended. I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the cupcake cherry and Yellow Stickles to the flames. The Primas have rhinestones for the centers. The three circles are layers from the Cuttlebug and are popped up for dimension. I used the Fiskars Cloud scissors for the scalloped panel.I made a list of cards we need to send out in the next month: 7 Mother's Day, 7 Birthday, 1 Graduation, 2 Teacher Appreciation, 2 Administrative Assistant's Day, and 1 Baby card. Yikes!! For most of them, I reached into my stash and chose cards that are ready to mail. Tomorrow I have to make the baby card, and gift card holders for the teachers. Hooray for today's Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast!!
Tonight, I walked almost 6 miles on the treadmill. I'm walking the Avon 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer in October, and have started my training. I will have more details on that in a post later this week. Right now, I'm going to get some sleep. DH is once again out of town and it will be a long week. Thanks for looking!
