Welcome everyone!  So glad you arrived at my blog because I am celebrating birthdays.  Well, not exactly, but the design team members, including myself, over at Can You Case It? are having a birthday card challenge.  Come celebrate with are the graphics:

I just love birthdays...don't you?!  I love celebrating others' birthdays as well as my own.  And I especially love cake and ice-cream and opening up presents.  I also enjoy watching others open their presents.  And children's birthday parties are on a whole other level with themes, live entertainment, animals, treat bags, favors, pinatas, zip lining, trampoline, and go cart venues, etc.  For this challenge I decided to go with a ballerina princess theme.  Here is my card:

I know, it's a little busy, but a lot of little girls like busy.  LOL  For this card I used an older Stampin' Up set to create the doodled background.  It is called Doodle This.  The sentiment is from a fairly new Unity Stamp Co. set called glad you were born.  Pink paper is from GCD and the yellow paper is Pink Paislee.  The flowers are from Michael's.  Well I can't wait to hear your comments.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Until next time,

Can You Case It #128, A Sketch Challenge

I am so glad that you are visiting my blog.  WELCOME AND I HOPE YOU RETURN!   This week at Can You Case It, we are having a sketch challenge.  I knew right away which stamp I was going to use for the bottom of this card.  It is a stamp I recently purchased from the Great Lakes Megameet this past May 2016 in Novi, Michigan.

Our country has been experiencing some troubling, sad times recently.  The world has been experiencing troubling, sad times as well.  All the violence has taken its toll on me.  I wanted to create an uplifting, inspirational card.  I worry every time my eldest son, sets foot out our door.  I have told him what to do if ever he were to be pulled over.  I just pray that he will be safe.

Check out the inspiration:

The large stamp at the bottom of card is called dragonfly collage (Technique Junkies).  The sentiment stamp is from vintage scripture (Unity Stamp Co).  Archival black ink (Stampin' Up) was used for the collage and the sentiment.  The collage was colored with various dimensional paints and sprays from Art Anthology.  Thanks for taking a look!  Please leave a comment; they really make my day.  I hope to see you again next week.  I hope my card has given you some inspiration.  Until next week,  Dawn

Welcome friends!  I have to say that I just love this color combination.  When I saw these colors, I knew right away which stamp I was going to use.  I have had her for awhile and never inked her up until now.  Check out this beauty:

Isn't she gorgeous?!

And here is the inspiration;

She is from the Bloom Collection (Prima).  The sentiment is from, Today I am Happy (Unity Stamp Co.).  The sentiment and her were stamped in Basic Black (Stampin' Up; Archival ink).  She was colored in with water soluble oil pastels (Prima); Derwent watercolour pencils; and colored pencils (Faber-Castell).

Thanks for visiting and I can't wait to see your fabulous creations at Can You Case It!
