Good Morning my friends,
It's kind of yucky weather here today, overcast with thunderstorms but hopefully it will clear up as the day progresses as we have tickets for our local farm league baseball team this evening and Hunter really wants to go since he won these tickets by reading 4 books through their reading club. It's a great program for the young kids during the summer, and the games are always so much fun for them as the evening is filled with activities for them to participate in.
Have you visited the Critter Sketch Challenge this week? We have a birthday challenge for you and we would like to see your take on creating a child's birthday card. Your project can be for a baby, toddler, or teen birthday. Although it is not my week to showcase my designs please stop by the blog and check out the fabulous creations by the design team. Lots of wonderful inspiration for you!
I never seem to have any cards on hand for those girl birthdays that seem to sneak up on me and when I saw that Phindy's Place Challenge blog challenge #8 for this week was that they want to see Happy Birthday projects. I remember I had this adorable image from Phindy's Place that was offered as a freebie awhile ago and knew I must use it for my card. I colored her up with my Copics and for my layout I used this week's great sketch from Sketch and Stash challenge sketch #37 . My gorgeous DP is from the Basic Grey " Green at Heart" paper pad, my flowers and flower buds are Primas, sentiment is PTI, I added some Orange and Magenta Stickles for dazzling bling on the image flowers and sprayed the flowers with glimmer mist for some more dazzle, my ribbon, pearls and doily are from my stash.
I very happy with the finished card and can't wait to deliver to a special little girl for on her birthday.
This card will be entered in the following challenges
Phindy's Place Challenge #8 - Happy Birthday

Well since I have two more of my grandsons for the day we are heading out to a art class to paint our own ceramics this morning. The youngest (6yr old) was so excited when he saw that they had a class he called me to tell me about the class and asked if I would take him to paint on the day he was with me. Oh how could I not say yes to this precious child of mine. I am so blessed with these boys.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I wish you only the best and hope your day is filled with wonderful memories.
