birthday wishes

Hi everyone!  I'm sorry it has been a while since I've posted!  There have been a few things going on here but what has kept me the busiest is packing!  We are moving back home in a few days!!!  So very excited!!  I didn't think I would get a card made let alone posted here but I did!  I'm not sure if I will be back again for a bit, I may have time to squeeze in another card but if not, it will be a bit again.  When Gina K had her last release, I finally snagged this Stamper's Favorite stamp set that has been on my wish list for a long time!  My card is for Silke's challenge this week on Stamp TV to use the same image for your background and focal point.   I stamped the feather in Frayed Burlap and watercolored.   I wish now I would have watercolored the main feather a darker brown.  It does help that I ran the inked around the cut out feather.  The feather and sentiment panel are up on pop dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy!!
Until next time!

Happy Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge!  Super fun sketch with so many possibilities!  This set and idea came to me as soon as I saw the sketch.  I decided to go with the traditional black and white but the stars were heat embossed with penny embossing powder.  Quick, simple card!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Stamp TV challenge to make a birthday card and for The Paper Players challenge to make a CAS card with a flower/s.  This card came together real quick, I used my Old Country Roses set from Gina K Designs along with my Innocent Pink and Dusty Rose inks.  The sentiment is from Gina's Birthday Greetings set and I used a few Pretty Pink Posh droplets.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

So sorry

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to the January Calling All Sisters Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from Shona's blog, if not, be sure to head to the CAS-ual Friday's blog to start at the beginning, you don't want to miss a thing!   This month we are having a special blog hop!  Pretty Pink Posh has made a special sequin blend exclusively at the Cas-ual Friday's store to help us support Breast Cancer Awareness.  Michele will be donating 50% of the profits, just as she does with the other items in the Calling All Sistahs collection, to NBCF.org  Quantities are limited and once they are gone, they're gone.  
For my card, I had to use the sequins to make a shaker card!  I love shaker cards!!  I used my Ruffled Ribbon die and my sentiment is from my Hope Ribbon stamp set.  I had to add a few random sequins on the outside too, they are so pretty!!  
Don't forget to do your self breast exam and now is a great time to schedule a mammogram if you don't have an appointment for this year!!
Next on the hop is Nora, and below is the list of participants!  Thanks so much for joining us!!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch and The Paper Players challenges.  This week on The Paper Players, it is a color challenge, black, white and 1 other color.  I chose yellow!  I made a circle template then spread embossing paste with my stars and dots stencil.  I poured yellow embossing powder and heat set.  My sentiment is heat embossed and I added a couple of clear dots to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
