A Birthday and a Valentine

(Affiliate links used in this post, when possible, at no extra cost to you.)

Hi everyone!! Just a quick post with  some cards I created but never posted for some defunct challenges, as well as new challenges. I am great at doing that as of late but oh well.

The first card is a birthday card. I started off by using the CASE This Sketch #302 as my base and built on from there.

I used images from various different My Favorite Things stamp sets. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday's Umpteenth Birthday stamp set.  I LOVE the fun sentiments from this set!!

I actually used a lot of images that I had previously colored and then die cut. Then when I have a card I want to make I have images to choose from.

This sketch was tough for me but I was determined to complete it as I am trying to challenge myself a bit more and get out of my comfort zone.

The polka dot paper is from my scrap bin.

I am entering this into Seize The Birthday challenge #157 but am not using the topping, stamping only.

My second card I created for two challenges-The Card Concept #106 Pink Challenge (which I missed but oh well!!) and Uniko's Challenge #51 Anything Goes with a twist of Love. 


I started off this card by stamping two hearts in different pinks onto white cardstock using Simon Says Stamps Tons of Hearts stamp set.

I added a pig from Hello Bluebirds Farmyard Little Bits and colored it in using Copic Markers.

I then die cut the panel using Lawn Fawn's 4 Bar Stitched Dies and layered it over a couple of pieces of patterned paper scraps that I had adhered to an A2 sized, pink card base.

I added some Tonic Aqua Shimmer  and then Glossy Accents over the heart the little pig is holding and the tiny pink hearts to finish off my card. I think this is one of my favorite cards I have created in a LONG time and think I will be looking through my tiny images to create a few more.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog. I hope you all have a simply FABULOUS Tuesday!!
