Monday Challenge!

I'm not sure why I'm on a Happy Birthday card kick lately, other than you can never have too many birthday cards.  Someone, somewhere is always having a birthday!!!  The koala is from the Create A Critter cart, I used scraps from my stash, the black border is fiskars, I used flowers, some bling for the centers of the flowers, the Happy Birthday sentiment is from a 7Gypies stamp.  I popped up the koala with 3D Glue Dots.  I'm not sure if it needed something else, but I figured I'd leave it as is. 

I'm entering this in these challenges

Happy Birthday

I put this card together for my step-daughter who will be 21 in a couple days.  I used a free digi stamp, can't remember where I found it, but it sure is cute!  I used copics and prisma pencils, stickles, white enamel accents, glossy accents and the background was a doodlebug card with the matching envelope...I love those cards, so dang cute and the perfect base to build upon!

I didn't enter into any challenges, right now I'm too dang tired to look up which ones will fit this card, maybe next time.

I hope everyone is ok, especially those who are in the areas that have been hit with tornado's, flooding, wildfires, and other crazy scary things going on.  Please stay safe and be careful.

A Simple Happy Birthday

My Ash and I made this simple birthday card for her friends birthday. Well, actually I made it, and she picked the colors and which image to use.  She chose the snail from Create a Critter. The grass is from a strip of green cardstock and I used Martha Stewart scissors to cut the blades...I think it turned out cute!  The sun is from a flower that I had made and just cut the excess off.  I'm entering this into the following challenges.
