Birthday Numbers Card

Birthday Numbers Card
After being outside in the heat a lot yesterday, I managed to stay inside where that glorious air-conditioning is running. :) I managed to find a few minutes to play in my craft studio too. The card has numbers and will fit Paper Play's "Your Number's Up" challenge. Charmisa Cardz has a challenge called "Watch The Birdie" going on and I used a Hampton Art birdcage stamp (that happens to be holding two birds). I used the colors for the Play Date Cafe challenge (Provence France/colors photo). Finally the challenge at Pile It Up (#26) is to use your favorite things which I managed to do. My favorite things are: rubber stamping, cardstock, rub-ons, any and all scallops, bows, pearls and sewing (on cards only....that's the only thing I sew). :) All the stamps are by Hampton Art, border punches by EK Success and the rub-on is by Royal & Langnickel. The diecut numbers are by Sizzix. I also used chalks by Pebbles to color in the stamped birdcage.

It was so hot in my area today! How hot you ask? It was so hot that my hummingbirds were not even flying to eat at their feeders I have set up around my house. I saw fewer today than in a long time. I was hoping to stay inside most of the day but had to make a run to the grocery store, post office, etc. I almost wanted to climb in one of the freezers at the grocery store (think that might have been frowned upon though....wink!) Thanks for stopping by!

Bev--Thanks for playing on the PaperPlay challenge this week! :)

Also, you should check out the results from my summer blog candy. The result might just... ahem...make your day. :) I hope.

Then you can go ahead and enter for the new candy too. So all around, a lot of reasons to smile, yes?

Have a great day,
