Polka dot pinwheel birthday and Estes Park!

Hi Everyone!

I am finally home after our wonderful family vacation in Colorado. I’m sharing a couple of photos at the end of this post. If you ever get a chance to visit Estes Park, I highly recommend it!

So, now back to the matters at hand. I have another birthday card to share. I know I’ve been sharing a lot of those lately. Full disclosure:  Many of the cards I’ve been sharing since I started blogging again have been cards I made a while ago and had just stashed away.  So this is the last birthday card I have and now I’ll need to actually get situated at my craft desk and make some cards!

This is another super simple card I made using some polka dot pattern paper. I made some simple pinwheel flowers and added the sentiment at the bottom.  I added the panel to a piece of Aqua Mist card stock from Paper Trey Ink and attached it all to a white card base.

Not a whole lot else to say about this one. I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by today and I’ll be back again as soon as I can!

Challenges for today’s card:

Cupcake Birthday Wishes!

Hi Everyone.

I am still on vacation in beautiful Colorado! I posted some pictures to my Instagram story...hope you get a chance to pop over there and take a look

Sharing another quick birthday celebration card. This one made with inkadinkado stamps. This is one of those stamp sets that I always seem to keep no matter what othering purging I do of old craft supplies.

I layered some fun bright colors and stamped the little cupcakes with Simon Says Stamp very black ink and then colored them in with some Copic markers. I don’t remember where the sentiment came from and I’m not at home to look. I think it’s a Simon Says Stamp one; but it’s quite possible it could be from an old “Verve” set

Have a great day everyone and I’ll post again when I can!

Celebrate your Birthday!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re having a great day so far. By the time this posts, I will be in Colorado for a family wedding. I’ve never been to Colorado, but have always heard wonderful things so I am looking forward to it. I will share pictures over on my instagram account, so be sure to follow me over there if you haven’t yet. Just click the green circle instagram button over there to the right ➡️😊

So I am prescheduling a couple of posts for while I’m away so that I keep my rhythm going here in the blogosphere. Today’s card I’m sharing is another very simple card just using some patterned papers and sentiment stamps. The sentiments are from Altenew and honestly I don’t remember the paper. I think it’s just a pad of paper I picked up from Michael’s a while ago.

I loved all the different fun colors and polka dot patterns and then I just added a couple of hearts with glossy accents to add something extra because otherwise it was a little too much polka dottiness going on.

Anyhow, I do hope you enjoy it.  Thanks for visiting me and I’ll be back again soon! Have a great day.

Simple Floral Thank You

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days! Busy prepping for a late summer vacation. As a matter of fact, I am in the car typing this while my DH drives and the kiddos are all happily entertained amongst themselves.

Super simple card that I made a while back with some pretty floral pattern paper and prima flowers and a simple thank you sentiment on the bottom. Not a lot of detail to discuss with this one, it’s pretty much just as simple as you see it here! 

I decided to keep the embellishments and sentiment simple since the floral patterned paper takes most of the focus of the card. Simple; but I hope you like it!

Have a great day everyone and I’ll be back again in a couple of days!
