Bloggers' Challenge -- Week #38

Can you believe that we're already at Week 38?!! Time flies, doesn't it?!! Haven't had a lot of time to stamp this week....I've been working on getting together all the tax info for hubby's business....will be bringing that to the accountant later today. What a YUKY job.....I soooo needed some stamp time!

This week was fun (ok, they all are!!), and features something that we all can use....birthday cards! So, I pulled out Fun & Fast Notes....don't you just love that cute birthday cake?!! Such a great set...for all kinds of occasions.
Ok....back to the card........
You can't really see the detail on the cake, but the frosting was colored in with glue and then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter; the cake and candles simply use markers. EASY! The background is double stamped....a technique I often use because it adds just the right amount of interest. And the Only Orange strip is stamped with Lots of Dots Jumbo Wheel from the Occasions Mini....I've been getting a lot of use out of this one......it is quickly becoming a favorite.
Stamps: Fun & Fast Notes, Canvas, Whimsy and Lots of Dots Jumbo Wheels
Inks: Basic Black, Pixie Pink, Pink Passion Cartridge (Whimsy Wheel), Pumpkin Pie Cartridge (Lots of Dots Wheel)
CS: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pixie Pink, Only Orange
Misc: Black Gingham Ribbon; Dazzling Diamonds Glitter; Pixie Pink, Only Orange, Pink Passion Markers; Coluzzel (also used retired Companion Circle), Giga Scallop Punch (non-SU)
HINT: Notice the words are stamped apart from the image? Just cut the words off of the stamp and mount to side of wood....gives you lots more versatility!
Now I'm off to visit some of the other participating Bloggers' to see what amazing creations they have come up with. Won't you join me?
