Critter Birthday Party

This little stamp has been such a fun one to color.  However, I just realized from the photo that I forgot to put the dazzling details/stickles on the cupcake!!  Oh no!  I will have to go back and do that so just imagine a little sparkle on the cupcake icing and flame of the candle.  Haha!  Sharing a simple card today.  This is just some Bermuda Bay washi tape (I have so much of that stuff and have to quit “saving” it!!) and a little coloring!

Hello stamping friends!  It’s been a busy summer hasn’t it?!  I’ve been busy with my son’s baseball and youth conference the last few weeks.  I did manage to make some cards in that time so I wanted to share a few with you today.

Soft Sky and White Azaleas

Happy Memorial Day Weekend my friends!  Hope you have some fun planned!  Richmond is beautiful and green with lots of popping colors in May!  It’s the most beautiful month other than fall in my opinion.  One of the things I love most are the Azaleas.  The bright colors are gorgeous but I also love the white Azaleas.  I wanted to try coloring a white flower.  I used gray tones on this one.  I used lavender shadows on another to see which one looked more real.  I’m not sure I’ve decided which looks more real but I like the way this one turned out.

We had a rainy day on Thursday and I was in need of a day for myself so I decided to sit down and make cards all day!  I had lots of new toys and I had lots of stamped images on my desk that I had colored but not put on cards yet.  Mostly I used the colored images to make the cards.  This is one of them.  You can purchase it in my Etsy Shop.
