Today It's Your Birthday......

It's My Birthday Too, Yeah!! Well, technically, it's not my birthday, but that song is seriously STUCK in my head!!!

I NEEDED to post a bright card today because we woke up to snow. Yup, you heard me right. THIS IS OFFICIALLY RIDICULOUS!!!! My pool gets opened next week for goodness sake!!!

The humongoid garage sale is going well. It officially starts today, but we held it yesterday too. I sold most of my scrapbooking stuff (you know, the pre-SU stuff). I have tons of retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets for sale too. I also have my class schedule and many samples out hoping to find some new souls who haven't become addicted to the art of rubberstamping yet!!

So, on to this pretty of a card (I am watching Pirates of the Caribbean as I type there might be a bit of pirate talk in here). The base card is made of Pink Passion cardstock and measures 4.25" x 4.25". I stamped the base card with my Canvas background stamp using Pink Passion ink. The next layer is Only Orange stamped with Polka Dot and heavily sponged with Only Orange. The focal image (from Fun and Fast Notes) is stamped on Shimmery White using Black StazOn ink. I watercolored using my aquapainter and ink from the inside of my inkpad lids.

All cards need some kind of "oomph". My "oomph" came from a double layer of the Photo Corner punch and a Green Galore button in the lower right corner.

Let's hope this card is bright enough to melt away this snow!!!

Until tomorrow....Happy Stamping everyone!!!

Love your card. It is so bright and cheery. If it makes you feel any better it is still snowing here too. We are bouncing from 70* days to snow the next and back again. Welcome to spring in Colorado. Thanks for being a bright spot in my day. Linda Gray
