Happy Wednesday!

It's a gloomy rainy morning here but the sun should be coming out a little later. A little rain is good for all my flowers and garden!

I have a few cards to share with you that I've created this past week.

This first one is for today's SC649. My run as a sample maker on SCS is coming to an end this month. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time on SCS and it got me out of my stamping slump.
Here I've used some of the new SU! goodies from the new catty. I'm in love with this Delightful Daisy DSP. The daisy from Daisy Delight was stamped twice with Daffodil Delight and punched using a new SU! punch. Isn't that new Faceted Gem perfect for the middle of the flower?! The Happy Birthday sentiment came from the Big on Birthdays set.
Stamps: Daisy Delight,  Big on Birthdays
Paper: White, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Delightful Daisy DSP
Ink: Daffodil Delight, White Craft Ink
Accessories: SU Daisy Punch, Clear Faceted Gems, Sewing, White EP, Dimensionals
This next one is mostly SU! I love that spots and dots embossing folder that I picked up at a craft store years ago and can't stop using it! LOL! The layout came from last week's Freshly Made Sketch and the colours from last week's Colour Throwdown. Also was the Paper Player Theme Challenge of Birthdays last week.
Stamps: Balloon Celebration, Big on Birthdays
Paper: White, Pear Pizzazz
Ink: Black, Cameo Coral, Barely Banana, Pear Pizzazz

This one used the same Freshly Made Sketch but the colours were inspired by the Paper Players Challenge this week. Isn't that new Lemon Lime Twist colour fun?!
Stamps: Lovely Inside & Out, Butterfly Dreams
Paper: White, Pool Party
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Versamark
Accessories: Glassy Glaze Enamel, Reverse Confetti Dies, Dimensionals, Lovely Words Thinlits

More Birthday cards...

Good day!

I've had some cards posted in my SCS gallery for sometime but keep forgetting to post here. Sorry!
