I LOVE making birthday cards! In honor of the super cool banner ad today (Designed by  Tricia )on SCS I’m posting some Lizzie Anne Designs-JUST IN CASE you need a PUSH to hit the SUBMIT button! 😀


Dont miss your chance to win MYTIME MAIL here!

I will be doing another AMAZING mytime mail tomorrow! So dont miss that. A girl has to do something will all these extra goodies. Id rather give them to my regular readers!

AND tomorrow Im gonna share a cool lightbulb moment with you all. So check back here.

HINT it does involve Stampin Up!

Well, lets get to my first card (above). This post of cards features ALOT of things I LOVE. I LOVE making birthday cards. The stamp set used on both cards is called Happy Birthday

I am so addicted to my scalloped punches, its really insane. When I saw this paper, by Sassafrass called Raspberry Ripple I went nuts.

So I stamped my cake on my circle in RED! Used my copicmarker, and singlo gel pen to color.


I then took out my super cool FOAM shapes from American Crafts, and layered them to mimic the paper design. While doing that I removed a plastic divider in the canister to get to the shapes on the bottom of the container-WELL, here comes the COOL FOUND OBJECT! See the acetate circle OVER my cake? That my friends is the divider from the canister! Cool huh???? I was proud!

I also pierced around the rectangle with my Onare template.

trio cupcakes CUTE Cupcakes

Who can really eat just ONE cupcake? OK in a crowd maybe, but if you are home dont tell me you wont sneak another? No? OK maybe thats why I need to go back on my diet! LOL!

I just love this paper by SEI called Penelope’s Potpourri. MANY of you have emailed me cause I ahven’t provided a link for it. Well, Im sorry, I got it at a stamp expo and dont know where to get it online! Otherwise Id LOVE to link you 😀

The card is pretty basic-just stamped my cupcakes that were colored with my SU! Markers. Popped out with my scalloped rectangle punch. Added some bling to the “flame”

Sentiment is stamped on vellum cardstock. Ribbon was by CTMH.

That it! Now celebrate something!

Id love to hear what your favorite birthday traditions are or favorite kids of cake! Heck, share your favorite recipe!

My youngest, Amber is turning 3 August 13th. We are having a party on the 4th. I need to get planning!!!!!!!!!!!

MY favorite cake-HMMMMMM I love it all.

Birthday tradition-I never went to work/school on my birthday EVER!

For my kids I alway buy the other ONE thing and wrap it to help ease the jealousy of the b-day child and that way they leave the new toys alone!

I always like to have a “theme” and fun craft. We of course always get a professional photo for their b-day too.

Other than that I think thats it.

OK, your turn!

Im Rockin the blog!

I feel so special! Kristin (aka KED) tagged my blog as one of her top 5 Rockin blogs :D. Kristen has one of my favorite SCS galleries, and designs with me on the MFT stamps design team.

Now its my turn to tag 5 blogs that I love and why. WOW! That is really hard! I love so many. So in alphabetical order-

We all know AmyR- She had one of the first blogs evah! I think that is very cool. We have become great friends and I love peeking in on what she is up to. We pretty much talk on the phone everyday and discuss stamping everything! LOL!

Bethany Paul– I love her style. Its very fresh and fun. Plus she is one of those super sweet people that comment on everyone creations/blog posts.

The Craft Critique-not sure if that “counts” cause its a collective blog-but its great for all the cool stuff it has there! You can find product reviews links to other blogs, cool contests. You name it. AND NO I didnt pick it cause I am going to be a featured reporter! I really think its an amazing source of info.

Jen (aka genie1314)-I just love Jens style. I also love the her hubby chimes in now and again with his views.

Jeanne-well not only is Jeanne funny, but her coloring is just jaw dropping. When I grow up I weanna color like Jeanne! Im sure you all know who she is……..

There are again, alot more Id LOVE to add. Seriously if they are in my blogroll to the left-I love them! Also there are some that Im sure I have failed to link and should :C
