It's a Beautiful Sunday!

So, how's the weather in your neck of the woods? Here in Michigan, signs of Spring are popping up little by little. I think we are finally done with the bitter cold temperatures and the thermometer is moving up a little. The sun is coming out more often too! I can't wait for it to warm up just a bit more so that we can turn the heat off. Plus, I love the smell of the fresh spring air when you open the windows for the first time of the year! We should be getting sprinklers and sod soon too, so I'll eventually have more pictures to show all of you who have been following our "building a house" project.

For now, another week has flown right by and it's Sunday again! This week I've challenged Kimmy to create a Gift Bag or Box for our Fun Filled Friday Challenge. This should be fun, cause there are so many paper box tutorials that I want to try--I think the hard part will be trying to decide which one to do! Won't you play along this week?

Well, I'm still plugging away at all of the new stamps I've received lately from DRS Designs. Ever since our vacation to Mexico I've been behind, but hopefully by working hard this week I'll be back on track.

Here's a birthday card I made recently using the Girl Swirly Cake image. I love the blue and dark pink color combo together! I colored this image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended the colors with Gamsol. I added Stickles to the candle flames and to the pink flowers around the cake base. The sentiment I used is part of the Happy Birthday Multi Greeting stamp. I like the versatility in this stamp--use all the sentiments together to create a background or ink up just a portion for a perfect fit on your project!
