Happy Birthday

Hello!  Today I've got another Lawn Fawn card to share.  Yesterday while I had the Critters at the Dog Park set out, I started pulling out some supplies to create a few more cards.  So today I'm sharing a birthday card for my nieces birthday who loves animals.  I hope she likes it, I tried to use papers and colors that I thought she would like, like the black denim paper with the bright colored hearts. It's strange because the happy birthday Chit Chat bubble was stamped in lime green and in real life matches the green hearts in the designer paper but in my photos looks yellow.  Have I mentioned that I miss my Photoshop editing program ):
I'm entering this birthday card into a few challenges which inspired me today, the first is Lawnscaping Challenge #88 which is to use texture on your card, the second is the Fusion Card Challenge where I used just the sketch and the third is the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp blog.
Supplies: Critters at the Dog Park + dies, Chit Chat + dies (Lawn Fawn), Circle dies, Embossing folder, Bakers twine, foam tape, Recollections designer paper.

Critters at the Dog Park

 Hello there!  Hope you're having a good day!  Today I've got a thinking of you card that I created using more of the fun new Lawn Fawn products that I purchased.  The little dogs from the Critters at the Dog Park are too cute, I couldn't resist getting this set.
The inspiration for my card today came from two challenges, the first was the Lawnscaping Challenge #88 which was to use texture on your card (I added the embossed polka dots, multi layers and embellishments for texture) and the second challenge was the Retro Sketches Challenge #128.
Supplies: Critters at the Dog Park + dies, Chit Chat + dies, Embossing folder, Circle die, Doodlebug Designs dp, Button, Bakers twine, Glitter pen for the bow.
 
Thank you for your visit!

Hippo Birdie to YOU - {SSSC232/CMCC33/STB}

 Hello there!  It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge
This week I ended up creating two birthday cards using the sketch (which I flipped).  I also used a fun new Lawn Fawn stamp set that I recently purchased.  I had so much fun using these stamps, it's nice to switch it up some times and instead of always creating floral or more formal cards, it's fun creating something cute.  Both cards use the same Lawn Fawn Year Four stamp set with coordinating dies but I mixed up the colors/patterns.  I'm entering this first card in the Color Me Challenge #33 and both cards into the Seize the Birthday Challenge: Anything Goes.
 Hippo's are my favorite animal from the zoo, I always end up taking a ton of pictures of them whenever we go to the zoo especially the Toledo Zoo where you can get close up to them.  The picture below is from years ago when our youngest was still small.
