Snappy Birthday

Have a snappy birthday.  I love pun sentiments and this is a keeper.  This cute crab in from 2 Cute Ink Digital Stamps and is called Beach Ball Crab.  It just makes me smile seeing a crab in swimming trunks.  The image comes with him holding a beach ball over over his head.  I wanted him to be holding this banner so I cut him out, then I had to cut his "arms" off to spread them just a little to hold the banner better.  Today at 2 Cute Ink Challenges we are starting a new two week challenge.  This challenge is an "anything goes" one, so everyone can jump on in the fun and play along.  I hope to see you all there!

Birthday Golf

Golf is not my thing at all but, I do know plenty of people who would love a birthday of golf. =)  This golf ball is from Doodle Pantry.  The set also comes with a ball just sitting on the ground, three sentiments, and two digital papers.  The sentiments I used are from a set called Birthday Accessories.  The Golf Ball set is free, so this is for sure something you need.

Tubing Fun with Sally

Have you met Tubing Sally yet?  I think she is just so fun.  She is from Digital Delights.  She is floating on some waves in her digital image.  But, I thought the swoshes on my paper could also pass as lazy river waves. So she is cut out and layered with some lazy waves.
Below is the inside of my card.  I always decorate the inside of my cards but rarely show them so today I thought I would do that.  I always use the up scraps from the front of my card.  I usually don't add a sentiment on the inside but this one was perfect.  It is also from Digital Delights and the set is called Heatwave Sentiments

A sunflower hello

Well, I tried something different this afternoon.  I have no drawing skills by any means so this was completely out of my box.  I drew the clouds behind my darling little girl.  I have a long way to go but I will try them again.  I use Copic markers and I am going to get some softer blue ones and maybe one shade softer in the grey also.  But, I did have a good time so that is what counts.  This little cutie is from 2 Cute Ink Images.  She is called Sunflower Girl.  She is new this month to Heidi's Etsy store.  You better go and check her out.  Also remember to join us at the 2 Cute Ink challenge.  Our theme is "kids" so she would fit in perfectly.
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
The Squirrel and The Fox - Ribbon and Lace

Hot Pink Friday

Happy Friday!  Hope you are looking forward to the weekend.  It is supposed to rain all weekend here so not too many plans being made in my house.  I thought I would try and make a quick card before the Granddaughter comes for the weekend.  This darling bathing suit is from Doodle Pantry.  The set is called Summer Suits.  The sentiment is also from Doodle Pantry and that set is called Summer Song Birdies.  There are a ton of different options for suits and sentiments, they also come colored with digital paper to match.  I paper pieced mine.  The paper I used is from Jillibean- Soup.  The paper was double-sided so I worked out perfectly.
