Birthday Wishes

Just a quick post this morning. I created this card for the Verve May 2018 Inspirational Challenge. I'm not one who likes the color pink all that much, even though I have 4 daughters and 7 granddaughters. Go figure...

Waterfront Cards

Today I got another chance to play around with the Waterfront Stamp by SU. Both were inspired by different demonstrators, Akemi Geary and Mary Brown. Thanks ladies for the inspiration!

I really like both of them for different reasons. The top one is using the True Gentleman DSP, which I love for the men in my life and it's such a clean and simple card. Got to love those. The bottom one is being used for a young man who lives in Sarasota, FL and loves the beach.  Sand, water, and palm trees , what could be better!

I did have a learning curve using this set, especially with the beach scene. Eventually after 3or 4 tries :{ I was happy with the end results. This set is owned by a fellow stamper and friend of mine,Vicki. Thanks Vicki! This will be on loan for a little longer so I can try my hand at more cards using this set. I'm looking through Pinterest seeing what will get my creative juices flowing.

Cricut Rainbow Birthday Card Annabelle

Annabelle and I 
Last Saturday my granddaughter Annabelle celebrated her 3rd. birthday with a Troll inspired party. Her mama decorated one of the walls in her family room with balloons representing a rainbow. I created the card above using my Cricut Explore using an image from Create a Critter and some SU products.

Make it a great day!
