This card I used A Bugaboo image called SSHappy Birthday
I colored it and then stickles on the ballon and some of the frosting.
I matted this image on a lilac colored Glitter paper!

For my Digi Darla image I used "Let's Play Baby"

This card was just to add to my collection of on hand Birthday cards, I used an image from Digi Darla's Designs called Lets Play Baby... I colored with my prisma colored pencils and then chalked the sky, cut out with a Spellbinders die and layered on black and then 2 other DP's and then the main background layer is pearl green by coredinations. The sentinment is from one of my Fiskars "birthday sentiments" stamp sets, the flower is a prima flower and I spritzed it with Glimmer Mist Pearl. The ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and the pearls are from Michaels and "match" the Coredinations card stock.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving all the lovely comments!

Good Monday morning all you lovely ladies!
This week at Digi Darla's Challenge blog, our very creative Karen gave us a
"Inspirational Photo" to follow:

 and here are the creations I came up with!!!

We have a sponsor this week and it is Floppy Latte Designs and here is the card I made
with her image "Bird Among Branch" I used some DP that I had and a stamped sentiment from my stash of acrylic stamps, I made the flower with my McGill punch set with the same DP to get a "matching" look. I wrapped the image with ribbon and tied a bow.

And now here I have my Digi Darla Image "Baby Bird in Tree" How adorable is this image...
I did a gate fold card and colored the image with my prisma color pencils. then added a mat with the tel color from the "inspirational photo" and then took some Teal colored Color Core paper and embossed with my cuddlebug. The flower I misted with glimmer mist Pearl. See below for the finished inside as well. this card would make a Great Note card, thank you, or even thinking of you...

Now your turn!!! Get busy and show us what you have up your sleeve this week!!
We love seeing your creations!

RIP My Sassy Girl

Our beloved lil Sassy... You brought so much joy and laughter to us with your antics. You have been with us since you were 2 weeks old because your feral feline mommy didnt want you she abandon you and I found you, I bottle fed you and you hung on for dear life and got stronger and became a beautiful kitty that we all loved so much. You became a wonderful domestic kitty and shared your life with us for 14 yrs. Now you are in kitty heaven and playing again like a kitten. We will miss you so much.

Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed.
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
