First up, the first birthday of Fresh Squeezed Stamps!
Ryann and Shannon are challenging their fans to create a NEW birthday card, and link it to their blog, for the chance to win a Sa-weet new stamp set.
As October 4th is my sister's birthday, and as my life has been pretty chaotic lately (moving kids, moving house, packing then unpacking my crafting supplies...) I haven't had the chance to make a card yet, let alone send it to the Netherlands. So, here ya go, Morag, Happy Birthday! You'll see it here, first!
I used the fabulous "On Trend 2013" stamp set, which I was lucky enough to win earlier this year.
I masked off a heart/harvest moon with Eclipse paper, and sponged on a sunset. The sequins in the set made some dandy stars. The water lines were done with Versamark pen. I LOVE that skyline with the subtle little heart...
Not to waste all that ink, I used the mask for the greeting on the inside of the card:
Off to link up to Fresh Squeezed Stamps!
If you'd like to join the Birthday Bash, you have until 6:00 pm Friday to create a birthday card to share.
Come back tomorrow, October 5th for another milestone:
I'm celebrating the second anniversary of my blog by participating in Operation Write Home's World Card Making Blog Hop. It's going to be STUPENDOUS! And you just might win a little something-something if you leave a nice comment...
