Cheers, A Birthday Toast

Happy day after Valentine’s Day!

Sharing a card designed for Create with Connie and Mary today!

We have a new color challenge for the week –

Lovely colors! Greens. My favorite!

I went with a birthday card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Birthday Wit, Mixed Drinks, Bubbles & Fizz DSP, CCMC

It’d be great for any adult friends celebrating! And, for any birthdays around St. Patrick’s Day too! Lol, the green beer!

I used the Birthday Wit from the 2018 Occasions Mini to stamp the words. Mixed Drinks from the regular Stampin’ Up catalog for the – drinks! I did fussy cut the drinks!

This is an adorable quick card and cute card!

The other Design Team members created some wonderful cards using these colors too! Check them out here. Want to create a card and join our challenge? You can do that here. Looking forward to seeing your creations!

Happy Hour with You

I have a fun card today for a new Create with Connie and Mary  challenge!

Isn’t this a great layout? I love the different shape in the center. Sort of tapered in.

I knew I wanted to use this new Color Theory Designer Series Paper stack again. It’s one of those 6×6 stacks!

And, for some reason, I decided to go with this Mixed Drinks set!

I had Cherry Cobbler still on the table and thought, perfect for a red wine color! So I went with the beer and wine!

Of course, they are fussy cut! I wouldn’t have it any other way! Just kidding, the framelits do spoil us!

What a fun card to leave for your someone special! Perhaps even to initiate a date, with a drink too!!

This is a great layout! The other Design team members did some fabulous creations using it. Check them out on our Create with Connie and Mary. And, if we inspired you, link up a card on our Facebook page.

It’s a Guy Thing

It’s Wednesday and time for a Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!!

This time, I’M the host!!!! Yay!!!!

I chose to go with a masculine theme –


I like these! And, best thing, you are not limited to what you want to use!

I hadn’t used this stamp set yet and thought it was perfect for this masculine card –

Neat. Clean. Simple. Very guyish.

It’s all stamped too! Love the Labeler Alphabet – perfect for these create your own sentiments!

I added a little dimension to the words but nothing else. That was just enough.
