Happy Birthday

by Kylie

Hi Everyone,

When I first made this birthday card, I really hadn’t planned on sharing it. I was in a hurry to get it completed and in the mail so it wasn’t quite how I wanted it to be. Then I remembered when I first started my blog I said this would be a place where I would share “the hits as well as the misses” and that “not every card would be a work of art”. With this philosophy in mind, and the fact that I haven’t finished the third card in my Stamp Trio Challenge, I decided to go ahead and share. Please don’t get me wrong, I quite like it and wouldn’t have sent it off into the world if I didn’t but I had a different vision in my head.

Here’s the card…

Happy Birthday Materials used: Stamps - Party Girl (Julie Nutting/Prima); Designer Paper - Unknown; Distress Inks.

The Julie Nutting dolls are SO FUN to colour. I bought another in the set and cannot wait to have a play with that one too.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are all having a great day!

Happy Stamping!

Joining with Bev and Elle in cheering and applauding this, and ALL your cards! You may call some ‘hits and misses,’ but I see them as ‘dazzles’ and delights’. Works of art, indeed – and this one is no exception! Splendiforous colouring; fabulous balance, an eye-catching layout: combined, one fabulous card, indeed! Now, as I’ve proclaimed myself as your ‘marketing manager’, march this little lass off to Seize the Birthday! They always have an open challenge, as well as a “topping'” which you can choose to use or not. Actually, I just went for a quick look, and the topping this week is stripes, sooooo…off you go, my friend! Also, Paper Crafting Challenge: Anything Goes. AND, should you be so inclined, scope out Seize the Sketch. You could create another one of your images (or use the new one), as you have, and just add a background panel. Look at me: all kinds of advice! You know my motivation though: your talents need widespread display. So there!! Love this!

I really need to keep a log of all these challenge sites! I never remember to visit them. Thank you for the heads up for all of them. LOVE all your advice and APPRECIATE you taking the time to share your words of wisdom, and encouragement, with me. Thank you soooo much, C!

I’m with Bev. This is definitely a wonderful card. 🙂

It’s funny, but I’ve had quite a few cards that I’ve thought to myself they’re not so great – and, really, because they took almost no time to make. But then others have really liked them quite a bit. And then there’s cards that took me ages, and that I’m immensely proud of – but they kind of flew under the radar for everyone else.

So, definitely keep sharing! You never know how much they’ll inspire someone else. 😀

Thank you, Elle! 🙂

It’s true, isn’t it? I know I have experienced the same. I think you are right, just keep making and keep sharing. 🙂

In my world, 100% of the cards I’ve seen on your blog are wonderful. This one is no exception. It’s happy, colorful, fun, and most importantly YOU made it. That makes it automatically extra special. I’m glad you liked it, I’m glad you sent it out, and I quite like it myself! Sometimes, the vision we have in our heads for a card morphs into something else…not a bad thing, in fact, very often a good thing! So. That settled, I can’t wait for the next card in your trio! Don’t keep me waiting…lol!!! : )

No waiting at all, Bev! Another card made today. haha Thank you! 🙂 You are too kind. 🙂 It’s funny how ideas morph. That’s partly why I am sometimes allowing myself to go with that change, and sometimes stopping myself (because my card sometimes loses direction). Thank you again, dear friend for your lovely words. 🙂
