SC250 Make a Wish and a Birthday Bash!!!!

Happy TGIF!!!!

Finally weekend....wahooooo!!! I'm planning on doing absolutely nothing, nada, nix!!! My girls wore me out...they only place you will be finding me is my stamp room...I call it my *cheaper* therapy session - LOL!!!

Anyway - I wanted to share my card I made the other night for the SC250 Sketch. I'm not sure if the excitement over this Sketch didn't make me want to go to sleep or I was wired for no reason???

As soon as I saw the layout I knew I wanted to use the awesome Simple Delights Set (Simply Sent Kit). The sentiment is from the A Little Birthday Cheer Set.














The image was inked in Chocolate Craft Ink and embossed with Clear EP. The DP is from the Haiku Collection. To finish the card off I added the Pearls from the Prettiest Kit and the Ribbon.

Hope you like it???

**********************************************

Hi there! I'm a newbie when it comes to stamping and card making. When I stumbled across all of these challenge blogs, I happened to see some of your designs. Your cards caught my eye and I decided to check out your blog today. All of your cards are so beautiful! I really love everything that you do and it's what really inspired to pursue this new hobby of mine.

You'll be seeing a lot more of me around here!
