Gumball Birthday...


ETA:  I have to tell some good news - my side mission Cards {for} Critters raised $60 to give to the Saskatoon SPCA this Christmas.  How awesome is that?!?!  I know it's not a lot, but if I can help just one animal in need, then I have done my job on earth :)

Good morning.  Unfortunately, my alarm clock didn't go off this morning and I am running behind already - what a great way to start the day :)

I know every one is making Christmas cards at this time of year, but I am finished (good thing I started in January!)  So I wanted to make a fun, bright, happy birthday card.

I used another pre-colored digi (because they make my life SO much easier!):  Sweet Stuff Machine.  I glitter heat embossed the candies to give them a bit of a realistic look.

Card Ingredients:  Clear Dollar Stamps Digi;  Deja Views papers;  Bazzill and Recollections cardstock;  Stampendous! Kaleidoscope embossing glitter;  Doodlebug Designs button;  We R Memory Keepers Blue Lagoon baker's twine.  Tools:  sewing machine. 

I made this gumball birthday card for the following challenges:  CAS-ual Fridays - CAS and BINGO (I could go a few ways:  scallops, green, stripes;  stripes, orange, aqua;  scallops, polka dots, pink);  Charisma Cardz - seeing spots;  Wacky Wednesday - birthdays;  Sketchbook Saturday w Chupa - sketch #40:


Well thanks, as always, for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Tuesday!
