Blogger's Challenge 129: Birthday Theme

Oh, I just had one of those stressed out moments. I finished my card this week and am in LOVE with it and then I went to look at the number of blogger's challenge we are on...and thought I made the wrong theme for the week. WHEW!!!

So, this week, our blogger's challenge is birthday themed. It worked out so well this week for me as I needed to make a birthday card for one of my favorite little guys who is turning 1 this weekend and I can't wait to see him (and my BFF).

I pulled out some neglected stamps to make this card. I love them and think I need to pull them out more often as I'm not always happy with how my cards turn out, but I'm going to have a hard time giving this one away.


This is a new sketch I used from Just Us Girls, which I have been following, but just have not had time to participate in yet. I liked this sketch a lot and although I did eliminate one of the elements, I still like how the images worked with this sketch.



Thanks for all of you for continuing to follow my blog even though it's been quiet the last few weeks. My family and I have been doing some traveling & I've also been working on some new and exciting things for Clear & Simple Stamps. So while I have been doing a lot of stamping, I can't share any of it just yet. I am excited for it and can't wait to share it all.

Check out the other blogger's challenge peeps to see what fabulous birthday creations they have going on this week.
