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

This Calls For Cake

Hello and happy Sunday,

I'm currently on vacation at my sister's house in Portland, OR. I drove to northern California last week to pick up our mom to bring her here to stay with my sister for a month or so.

I usually bring some crafting supplies when I travel by car to mom's and/or my sister's house, although my sister is also a paper crafter and I can use some of her supplies while here. Yesterday, she and I did some shopping at a local scrapbooking and stamping store in Beaverton.

The supplies I brought with me are mostly for making some Holiday cards, but I also brought some misc sets too, which I used to make this birthday card for a co-work's end of July birthday.

The sketch is this week's Freshly Made Sketch. The stamp set is from Avery Elle called Sweet Swines. I used the Gina K Wreath Builder to stamp the balloons.

The images are all stamped with Memento tuxedo black on Whisper White Thick card stock and colored with SU Blends. I brought my Blends instead of my Copics to color with on this trip, because they take up less room. Honestly, I don't like how the Blends color as well as the Copics.

Here is the inside of the card.

Have a nice and restful Sunday. Thanks for checking in,
