I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Happy Birthday

Hi fellow stampers,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I've been away from blogging for a few weeks due to work and personal travel. I sure miss my stamps, ink and paper on these long periods when I'm not able to get into my craft room. I had a few hours today to make a couple of cards. This card uses Jen's Deconstructed Sketch 88 for the layout, and The Paper Player's 132 challenge for the colors.

Stamps: Happy Moments set by Stampin' Up
Paper: SU Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals and Whisper White card stock and SU DSP
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, SU Midnight Muse and Copics R83, R85, Y21, Y23, Y26, Y18, B26, B28
Other: Classic circle and Scalloped circle Nesties, SU embossing folder, Die-namics Fishtail Flags dies,  yellow pearls, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

I hope you have a great Sunday evening and week to come. I'm traveling again for work and have to leave for the airport at 6:00 am in the morning. I'll be in Colorado Springs for the week.

Thanks for coming by,
