Make a Wish Birthday Boy

My son’s birthday is this month and I wanted to make him a special card.

Make a Wish

  • The candle from Cycle Celebration was stamped off first and then stamped onto a piece of Whisper White
  • The frame was made using the Banner Framelits
  • Make A Wish is the perfect sentiment to go with birthday candles

Wishing my son a very happy birthday and a wonderful year.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy

Sending Good Thoughts for TSSC315

Today’s card was inspired by the Techno Stampers Challenge #315.  What a great sketch that lends itself to all kinds of cards.

  • A perfect combination – Retro Fresh DSP with its arrows and the sentiment from Perfect Pennants.
  • It is easy to combine paper panels – just flip the DSP over for a complimentary pattern (arrows dsp panel/blue banner panel).
  • Highlighting a word is easy using Stampin’ Up! markers.

To finish off my first week of blogging, I decided to try another challenge.  This time the challenge is Create with Connie and Mary – CCMC293 Sketch Challenge.  What a great sketch – so many possibilities.  Here’s my card:



  • I love the color combination of Smoky Slate, Midnight Muse, Soft Sky, and Crushed Curry
  • My stars with pearls mimic the star design in the Sweater Weather DSP
  • Congratulations is cut out from the Layered Labels stamp set

Hope you have a wonderful, and creative, weekend.
