Puppy Birthday Card







Today I have a birthday card to share with you. I made this simple little puppy card for my niece who loves puppies.  I used a puppy stamp that I picked up a few years ago from the dollar bin at JoAnn Fabrics.  I fussy cut the little dog and popped him up with some dimensionals.  I love that this card didn't require any coloring.  I'm including this card in the CASology challenge this week.  The cue card is BARK.  Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today!  You can find the challenge here:  CASology Week 215 BARK

Prince Tribute Cards

It's been a long time since I've posted anything.  I've still been making cards.  Finding time to get them on my blog has been a challenge.  I made some cards last night and want to share them.  These are special to me because I made them as a tribute to one of the most amazing musicians of all time....Prince.  His passing last week has brought back so many memories of the great times I spent with my friends listening to his music.  


I drew inspiration on the layout for the first card from this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.  The placement of the sentiment is a little lower than on the sketch but the sketch inspired me so I'm including this card in that challenge.  

CAS(E) This Sketch #169



The second card was inspired by this week's sketch at The Paper Players.  Again I ended up going a bit off the sketch but I think you can see on both of these cards where I drew the inspiration.

For my Favorite Teenager


The card I have today is one layer and extremely clean and simple:






A couple weeks ago my daughter turned 13.  This is such a big milestone for us.  She's a TEENAGER.   I made this sentiment special for her birthday.


I'm playing along with the Seize the Birthday Tall and Skinny challenge this week.  You can find the challenge here:   Seize the Birthday Tall and Skinny challenge

Something BIG is about to happen....

In a few short weeks my baby girl is going to be a teenager.  Not only is she going to be 13, we're celebrating three 13th birthdays in the family.  I'm going to need to have some special milestone birthday cards ready.


I used the layout from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch and the colors from the Just Us Girls color theme.  It's black & white + one color - I used gold.
