Another Quick Birthday Card

Here's a quick card I whipped up for my niece.  Thank goodness for all these family birthdays that keep me crafting:)  Sorry for the bad photo.  I needed to get this in the mail right away.

I just love the soft color combo of White, Groovy Guava and Certainly Celery.  I've had these SU! papers around for a long time and need to put them to use.

The birthday sentiment, from 2012 Birthday Tags, is stamped in Groovy Guava and hand cut.  I layered it over the oval frame die cut from PTI's Pretty Peonies.  This is the first time I've used the Simple Stripes IP from PTI since I've bought it.  I just love the look of it.

Off to make more cards!

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:   2012 Birthday Tags
Paper:  White, Groovy Guava, Certainly Celery, Groovy Guava pp (SU!)

First Birthday CASE

Hello out there in blogland!  It's been a while since I've blogged or made many cards.  I enjoyed the little break and am hoping to crank out more cards and get them posted.  Hopefully there are still a few of you who are stopping by to say hello:)

In order to get my mojo going again I CASED a few cards from the Papertrey DT.  I find that helps me get the creative juices flowing.

Since I needed a card for my nephew's first birthday I turned to my awesome By the Number dies and went looking for ideas.  I ended up creating a card like Dawn's card HERE.

Here's my take on it:

This was so quick and fun to make.  The little truck is colored with Copic markers.

That's it for now.  Hope each of you has a wonderful day!
