Wishing you Happiness

Hi, I finally managed to get some card making done this weekend! 


This is a variation on a card I made a while ago. Last time it was a thank you card, I like the layout and thought it would make a good birthday card too.

I'm going to enter a few challenges.

At CAS-ual Fridays, it's their 2nd birthday and their 100th challenge. Quite a milestone! The celebration challenge is to create a project using a bingo grid. My card uses the line Birthday/ Bling/ Punches or dies. It could also be the line for Kraft/ Bling/ Embossing. The flowerpots are punched out of Kraft scraps.

I'm entering a new challenge for me at Annabelle Stamps. This fortnight it's an Anything Goes challenge!

At Simon Says Stamp, the theme is Happy Mail.

I used snippets for my flower pots, the greenery in the pots and the yellow cardstock, so I'm going to the Snippets Playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Materials used: MBossabilities So Trendy embossing folder; Flower pot punch (on loan from my sister!!) coloured a bit with Prismacolor pencils; Martha Stewart Branch punch (I only have 2 and the other one is Frond); Annabelle Stamps sentiment stamp and Sprinkles bling; Craft Queen paper flowers painted with Twinkling H2Os; Kraft snippets and other cardstock from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  4. Fabulous Cathy! Your card is absolute perfection, love those little pots with their contents - brilliant use of snippets indeed.

    I suspect that it was a snippets Playground card you made back in March that set me on the quest for Ryn's 'Water Droplets' stamp :)

    Hugs, Di xx
