A Happy Celebration


Hey, The card I have for you today was prompted for a Birthday Celebration

over at The Color Throwdown.  Did you realize that they have been up

and running strong for FIVE years!  That’s a record I do believe…for

stamping blogs…but don’t quote me on that!  In honor of their celebration

they are giving away a boat load of prizes!   It’s AMAZING!

The colors they have this week are beautiful too!


And here is what I did with them…don’t they just scream goodness!


 I just got this jar stamp a few days ago when I was in Lakeland at the most

amazing store I have ever laid my eyes on!  It’s called Violette’s Scrapbook store!

I wish I had spent more time there, but my sis isn’t into that sort of thing and

I was compelled to rush through.  😦  I am making a trip back that is for sure!

I am hoping the shading I put on the flag poles make them appear round,

that was my goal anyhow!  The banner stamps are from Stampin UP and

I have never inked them up before!  LOVE them!

The polka dot washi tape came across orange, but I promise it’s pink.

The paper and ink is mostly Stampin Up.

I am also linking this card up to

Seize the Birthday (Anything Goes)

Anything Goes Birthday linky party


The Pink Elephant (Feminine Birthday)


I started off with a Retro Sketch…but as I kept working

it didn’t resemble the sketch much anymore….lol!

Have an amazing creative day!
