Wishing you a LOVELY day!


Poppin' in to share a card I started a while back. Hope you're all doing well!

Here is a card I made for an upcoming birthday.  I used Anya Lifts from TGF and I absolutely love her! 

I used some bright colors on her outfit and the balloons to match the Bo Bunny Ambrosia paper behind her.  I wanted to do some fun confetti, but it kinda got out of hand so I just had to go with it. I don't know if you can see, but they are mostly sparkly.  It's really hard to see sparkle if you don't have the right sort of camera or lighting, but believe me when I say that there is a lot of sparkle going on here. lol  I also threw in a fun banner using C.C. Design Cutter Corner Banner dies.  The sentiment is from the AmyR Happy Thoughts set and seemed appropriate for my card.

There are a few challenges I'm going to join with this card.  ATS Wednesday Challenges, Danni's Flutter By Wednesday and TGF's FFF.

A reminder that challenge #2 at Yumi & Fumi Handmade ends on Saturday.  Have you submitted your project?  You have a chance at winning a Y&FH stamp or you could possibly be chosen as one of our top 3 and receive your own personalized blog badge.  For all the details click HERE.  Also our store is open and ready for you to stop in, look around and purchase some one-of-a-kind stamps.  If you're looking for Sister Stamps we also sell them.  Come take a look! {Y&FH store}

I'm going to try to share some news around blogland at the end of my posts.  Here are two that I found:

Have you seen the new previews over at La-La Land Crafts?  Pure cuteness and whoa on the new dies!! Check them all out HERE

Head on over to Kris' blog for a chance to make some kids happy as she shares the 2nd Annual Make a Child Smile card drive.  Read all about it HERE and hope you can make some children smile and help a terrific cause! : )

Mahalo for stopping by!!  Have a terrific day my friends, HOPE it's bright! ; )

Cuuuuute!! Isn't glitter such a pain to photograph!! So frustrating. I think it looks fabulous though, and I'm sure it's just that much more cute in person! I still haven't had time to ink up my big Anyas, I'm gonna have to make that a priority!
