TS Monday -- B'day Card

Well......it is time to play with the Totally Stampalicious DT.......it always makes Mondays fun!!!!  Our challenge this week was to make a birthday card.  I always have a tendency to go to the pinks/greens/blues for my 'girlie' cards, so decided to try something different this week......went with pumpkin and saffron.

For my image and sentiment, I used the set called Cupcake JJ  from Totally Stampalicious and their Bugaboo line.

Now be sure to visit the Totally Stampalicious Blog to see the samples made by the DT members AND to get the 'deets' on how you can play along.


and here is another to share from last week.......

For Tuesday's Tea Party Challenge, da Mudda gave us only one requirement......use ribbon.  So I pulled out this sweetie from Penny Black (a current fav).  I used a sheet of origami paper for the background and added an embossed panel under my ribbon.  Actually was a fairly simple card to create.

On a personal note......

For those of you asking....Angel is recuperating very well.  She is 'itching' to run around outside.  She will go midweek to have her stitches out and then, hopefully she can 'lose' the conehead.   She will 'run like the wind' once allowed loose outside, I am sure.

Wow...do I ever love that pumpkin and saffron combo. And, don't I wish cupcakes were calorie free on birthdays...yum yum. Your little girl with that big heart is a real cutie and I love the dp.
So glad Angel is doing well and will be free of the cone midweek, hopefully. I bet you will be as happy as Angel.

Fantastic cards! I love the orange/yellow combo. Colors I typically struggle with, but you made them look great!

Oh those colors on the birthday card are great and i like the flowers you added. Your second card is too cute, what a fun girl image. Glad Angel is doing well. The cone is not fun and hope that comes off soon.
