Happy Birthday Kisses!

"If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Pamela's blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until you come to my blog. Since I was out of school I couldn't resist jumping in for this month and was so excited to be able to do so. The challenge this month was to use a|s stamps to create your dsp. I went with that and tied in a consultant challenge to use the kissing technique. I don't have a lot of backgrounds so had to with the polka dots on the circle stamp- I think it gives it a fun party look- I might have to do another one using different color circles, hmmm.... Anyway, to keep this short so you can get hopping here you go! Make sure to read after the card for some more info and where to go next!

Stamps- a*muse|studio: Birthday Greetings, Lots of Dots, Polka Dot Patterns
Ink- a*muse|studios: ocean
Paper-a*muse|studio: sugar, Ocean
Accessories- clear twinkle stickers and dimensionals

Okay- here's the deal- tomorrow (Friday, June 3) is MY birthday so I'm going to give a little something away... If you know me, you know that no matter how hard I try I just cannot make myself like glitter (not even stickles). Well, in the consultant kit there was a container of diamond glitter- I will NEVER (and I mean NEVER) use it so my loss is your gain. The Birthday Blog candy is: diamond glitter, a variety of a*muse buttons (pumpkin, buttercup, shell, blackberry, and cranberry), and a half yard of the bubblegum satin ribbon. All you have to do is comment here (and if you are not interested just state- don't put me in the drawing). I will close this the evening of June 5 and announce Monday morning, June 6.

I love how those circles turned out! Great card! And a big happy birthday wish to you!

Sherri Thacker said...

Happy Birthday to you! I love how this came out. I tried this technique the other day and for some reason, it didn't come out as good as yours. I need to practice it again. TFS

I like the touch of bling!

I wasn't big into glitter, until I met Linda. She always used it in cute ways that I'd never seen before. So, I fell. Hard. You wouldn't wanna know how much glitter I have. LOL! And, yes, Diamond is my favoritest! *chuckle* Great job on the Challenge--I'm so glad you played!
