SFYTT Happy Birdday

I really missed not being Jen's guest designer this weekend, so when I got a free minute, I decided to go ahead and play along!! I used the cute little birdie from the SU set Pun Fun. I colored her in with my SU makers and aqua painter. The colors on this card are Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, and So Saffron. My DP is by 3 Bugs in a Rug. I pierced a border around the white panel that had been run through my Cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder then added some silver brads to the corners. The ribbon is SU Rose wide grosgrain. For the sentiment, I punched it and it's layers out with my word window punch.
Have you seen all the SU sneakpeeks...I AM SO EXCITED...although...I think I need to get a third job so I can afford all the stuff I want out of it...I am sorta happy I wasn't there at convention...I would have been in OVERLOAD!!

OH YA!!!! Get a load of my new watermark....snazzy huh!! Beth Silaika did a FABULOUS job with all my watermarks and my super cool new blog banner!! Thanks Beth, I love them!!

That is it for me now, I am off to stamp some more. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Today's featured stamper over on SCS is Michelle-aka Shellapoo. I wasn't all that familiar with her gallery, but when I read her story(follow the featured stamper link to read it), I had to participate. I chose this card of hers to CASE. Since I am going to be mailing this the Michelle to give away, I decided that one of the newly released Paper Pretties stamps would be fabulous!! I used the newly released Surf's Up, which was colored with my SU markers and then cut out with my oval Nestabilities. To make it look right, I had to tilt my oval slightly. I used my favorite tropical themed paper from Karen Foster. I layered the main image with Ruby Red and popped it up with a long panel of Whisper White that had been ran through the Cuttlebug with my swirls folder. I added some big silver brads(thanks Jackie) to each end and wrapped some hemp twine around it. The base is Ruby Red, More Mustard and my Karen Foster DP. I pierced a hole in the scallops and I added polka dots to his swim trunks with my white gel pen. I am off to create some more!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
