birthday cheer

Is it just me, or does everyone else know too many people with July birthdays?  In the spirit of being organized, I've used some card challenges to motivate me.  If you're looking for my post from the May Arts/Little Yellow Bicycle/Xyron hop click here.

Fusion Challenge's sketch.  This card uses left overs from a past Artful Delight kit, am I the only one who has a drawer full of Prima Flowers and never knows what to do with them?

This week's CASE Study Challenge with a special nod towards Lynn's card.

One last card (so I say) for the Hero Arts Stamp Your Story challenge.  On this card I've used May Arts velvet corduroy ribbon and white paper raffia.

This week's CAS(E) this sketch challenge.  In addition to an upcycled coffee holder, I've used May Arts woven burlap ribbon and burlap string, plus PTI die, Paper Smooches sentiment, Simple Stories paper, Studio Calico heart, woodgrain paper die cut with Lil Inkers Designs heart die and PTI happy die.

This week's Play Date Cafe colors.

Cheers, if you made it this far...    hope you're celebrating some birthday cheer this coming month (we are in our house, times 2!).
