Birthday Flower

I'm trying to make a few extra birthday cards whenever I can so I'll have some on hand when I forget that so and so had a birthday - 2 weeks ago?  You know what I'm talking about I'm sure.  My intentions are always good,  but........

This was done for a challenge a week or so ago and never got entered and so once again...... good intentions, but...........
I used a flower stamp from Simon Says Stamp and the sentiment is from Stampabilities.

Thanks for stopping by...........and have a great weekend.

Those Little People

How about a cute couple of gnomes today.  I have to laugh every time I see gnomes because a few years ago my granddaughter could never remember what they were called so she just started calling them "those little people".  Everyone in the family picked up on that and so that's what they're referred to now. 

These two really are cute though and look so much in love.  They're from Gerda Steiner Designs for their progressive monthly challenge.  If you played along last month, you received this image free for the month.  If you didn't play along you can always go over to her shop and purchase it.   I colored mine with Copics, cut them out and then mounted them on several scraps of paper that matched their outfits.

Thanks for stopping by.........

This is one of the "Twist Tie" stamps from Art Impressions - however, I did a little bit of untwisting and only used one of the two giraffes.  He/she is colored with Polychromo pencils and I did some  distressing in the background around him/her.  The background die is from My Favorite Things.  I also had a couple of the clouds that I'd run though the Swiss Dots embossing folder so used those  along with a bit of twine.   Just a little "hey" card.

I'll enter this in the challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies ( to use a critter on the card),  Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets), and Double D Challenges (twine).

Thanks for stopping by...........
