Happy Thoughts

I love bright, beautiful colors!  The Polkadoodles Challenge #34 - All Things Bright and Beautiful challenge is perfect.  This card features a cute little girl from the Hero Arts 'Sweet Wonderful You' clear stamp set, and I LOVE her!  Now, I would tell you who the sentiment stamp is by, but I simply CANNOT find it.  I have no idea where it got to.  Me thinks I need to clean my craft room!  You can't see it very well in the photo, but the blue paper is embossed with the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder.

Birdie Holiday Blessings

This card was inspired by the Delightful Inspiration I {Heart} Sketches NO. 31 challenge.  The image is the Inkadinkado Songbird Mini clear stamp colored with Copics, and the sentiment is a Hampton Art ditto wood mounted stamp.

Psst...Happy Birthday Birdie

The image on this card is a Doodle Pantry digi stamp named Peacock Birdie, so I am entering this card in the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 37.  I absolutely fell in love with this image when I saw it and HAD to have it.  I love so many of the Doodle Pantry images!  They have a Freebies section, if you want to join up with this challenge for a free stamp set.

This layout was inspired by the Delightful Inspiration I {Heart} Sketches NO. 30 challenge.  I am really enjoying participating in the The I {Heart} Sketches challenges.  It helps me incorporate more layers and embellishments to my cards, as I tend to go very simple when left to my own devices.  These challenges keep me moving forward in my card making skills!

The PURRfect Card

This card was inspired by the Delightful Inspiration {from the heart} August Free Stamp of the Month and I {Heart} Sketches NO. 29 challenges.  I made the sentiment myself, using a great font from Kimberly Geswein called Architect's Daughter.  I have many of her fonts, and best yet, they are FREE!

The August Free Stamp of the Month is called Cat's Out of the Bag and is so super cute!

The I {Heart} Sketches NO. 29 sketch is one right up my alley.  My cards tend to be pretty simple, with only a background, image, sentiment, and one embellishment.  For some reason, that is just the way the cards come out, if I am not following a sketch.  The sketch this week was enough to push me out of my comfort zone, but not completely scare me away.
