I used the Hero Arts Stamp & Cuts Dress Up Stamp And Die Set and stamped the girl & legs images in black ink before coloring with Copic Markers. I die cut the skirt in watercolor paper and then watercolored it with pearlescent watercolors for shimmer. The puppy was stamped with black ink also and colored with Copics. I created the spot on its eye by using my Copic blender pen. I drew a leash with a fine black marker. The sentiment was stamped at a diagonal with black ink and little flower and clear sequins were added as embellishments. The main panel was die cut with a stitched rectangle die to dress it up a bit and then popped up on the card base with foam adhesive. I also added a little sparkle to the girl's hair band and necklace with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay brush marker.
I just love how you can pair Honey Bee & Hero Arts stamps together to created fun designs! This girl and puppy just seem to go together!

I know it's the time of year when everything is merry and bright, but for some reason, my mind drifted off to a synonym of the cue word: happy! From there, I ended up with a simple birthday card design!
I combined a Paper Trey die cut and sentiment on a simple white panel. I popped up the assembled main panel using foam dots for dimension. I used silver glitter paper for the die cut to add a little sparkle & interest to the simple design.
Be sure and go say a quick hello to the design team members & this week's guest designer! They work so hard each week to create inspiration!
Are you ready for the winding down of 2015? Another year has flown by and a fresh start is just around the corner. I love to reflect and adjust my sails as one year closes and another begins! I've chosen my One Little Word for 2016, but won't reveal it until the new year has begun.
I'm going to finish out the year with photos here on the blog. Plans are being made for a new year of blogging, but first, precious family time is to be enjoyed!

One more birthday card this week! I guess birthdays must be on my mind! I wanted to showcase the wonderful stamps from STAMPlorations, our sponsor over at CASology!
I stamped the patterned background using an image from the Mini Mixed Media set. I stamped two of the butterflies (Trendy Butterflies set) directly onto the background image and then a third onto a piece of white cardstock before fussy cutting it. It was then popped up with a foam dot and a clear gemstone was added to one of its wings. So simple!
I'm also linking this up with the Anything Goes Challenge over at STAMPlorations.

Today is my birthday! I've now reached the age where one doesn't get all that excited about such things, but I figured I'd put forth a little effort and make your week a little more exciting by offering up a little blog candy! I've been cleaning out my craft room, after all!
1. To enter, link your blog here using the link tool below. I'd love to come say hello!
2. The link tool will close Sunday, August 23, at midnight (CDT) and I will then select a random entry using random.org.
3. At this time, I will only be able to ship to addresses in the U.S.A. I wish I could ship worldwide, but international shipping costs have become quite spendy!
