Thinking of You Card
Since the Emerald is the birthstone for May, I wanted to make a card using green to close out the month. The layout is from this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning sketches. I picked a patterned paper from the Jack and Jill paper pad by Echo Park (2015). A small floral stamp by Altenew called Wonder Clusters was stamped and colored with Copic markers. The coordinating die was used to cut it out. A Thinking of You sentiment by Taylored Expressions was stamped and die cut with a stitched circle die. The final addition was the little yellow butterfly that was in my stash and everything was adhered flat. That's it and thanks for stopping by. This Thinking of You Card is also entered into the anything goes challenge at Use Your stuff. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Masculine 40th Birthday Card
Almost all the supplies used on this Masculine 40th Birthday Card are from Stampin' Up!. However, most of them are also very retired. The stamp set is called Number of Years and the patterned paper is from the Cupcakes & Carousels paper stack. The Stitched with Whimsy Die is current and used around the edge of the paper. A few silver glitter punched stars for sparkle and everything was adhered flat. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.✨

You're Cool Card
To create this You're Cool Card I used the challenge colors at Inky Paws. Although my green might be a tad too bright. The stamp set is called Newton's Summer Treats by Newton's Nook and the image was colored with Copic markers. Using Scattered Straw distress ink I created the background using the ink smooshing technique. The layers were cut out using the Frames and Flags die set by Newton's Nook. Everything was adhered flat and three sequins added for a little sparkle. That's it! So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Happy Place Card
Inky Paws color challenge. The challenge colors are: Royal Blue, Olive Green, Sunshine Yellow and White. It took me awhile to decide what stamp set to use and I finally decided on Newton's Birdhouse. Our cats love to watch the birds and I started feeding birds to attract the American Goldfinch, one of my favorite birds. So, I colored the little birds yellow and the cat was colored to look like my sweet boy Mr. Tommy. The sky and grass background was made using the ink smooshing technique and the layout is one I have used before. I love the sentiment "Find your happy place!" My happy place is with Mr. Tommy, he is such a handsome and good boy, he always puts a smile on my face. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.
