Good Monday Morning!

Today's my birthday! Gosh, where do the years go?! When I was a kid we only ever had family birthday parties as everyone is so busy at this time of year. Now that I'm older, I'm happy to be busy with Christmas and forget about my birthday....lol

These next two cards are made with my thank you's in mind.

This first one was made for the SCS Holiday Extravaganza #2.

I was finally able to ink up my new SU! set called Just Buzzin' By that will be available in the new catty come January. I watercoloured the image and you can see I'm out of practice but had fun!
Stamps: Just Buzzin' By; Cardstock: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, WC paper and Jr. Varsity DP; Inks: Black Stazon, Bashful Blue, Choc Chip, So Saffron, Summer Sun, More Mustard, Blush Blossom; Accessories: Aqua Painter, scalloped edge punch, circle nesties, may arts ribbon, rich regal brads, dimensionals
This next card is for Cindy's MFT sketch challenge #61.

I pulled out the super cute Flopsy for my card. He's so much fun to colour!

I moved the sentiment to the top of the image panel as I had too much empty space. I suppose I could have filled it in with a flower or buttons or paper piercing but this was the easiest thing to do...lol

Stamps: MFT; Cardstock: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, White and Jr. Varsity; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Copics, Bashful Blue and Old Olive Grosgrain, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!
