These colors - Polished Pink, Mango Melody & Coastal Cabana - are such a happy, cheerful color combination, don't you think?  A nice "beachy" feel!  Who would you send this card to?

Hey Birthday Chick! Fun Fold Card!

Good morning!!  These chickens are just so cute!!  Wouldn't this be a fun birthday card to receive?

The designer paper is the Hostess item, Pattern Party.  I thought this one looked like little chick tracks!

The inside is simple -- you could add one of the little chicks for more interest!  (why didn't I think of that sooner!)

Happy Hump Day!

Today's card is for a swap in September.  I was hitting a brick wall in the creativity department, so I headed over to my Challenges Pinterest Board!  I save all my favorite challenges there--for easy access!!  This sketch at Global Design Project (#GDP306) was just what I needed!  I'd also been wanting to use the Beautifully Penned Designer Paper, so I pulled it out!  The flowers on my card were cut from one of the designs, then colored in with the Melon Mambo Stampin' Blends.

Card: Whimsical Trees Bundle

Good morning!  I know it's only August, but my Holiday Card Classes start in a few short weeks, so I've been designing Christmas cards like crazy!!  I had seen an idea by Stampin' Up! where they spritzed reinker over the Be Dazzling paper to make it whatever color you want!  So, I did just that with the Polished Pink.  It was soooo pretty!!  Here it is as trim for my Whimsical Tree:


The tree itself is cut from the Whimsy & Wonder 12X12 DSP.  Love the contrast of the Polished Pink and Mossy Meadow--so striking!!
