A Happy Wednesday!



Waking up at 4 am to a screaming 2 year old didn't seem to be such a great start to Wednesday.  I tried to channel Jo aka Super Nanny and her "stay in bed technique".
Didn't really work too well this morning.  So I was in the kitchen having coffee and serving waffles by 5. When I checked my "crackberry" and saw that I had been selected as a part of Mabelle RO.'s Whimsy and Stars guest design team, I was super excited! My whole day changed for the better, lol! You can check out all her sweet images here.

I have two cards to show you today using Whimsy and Stars images. The first uses Alex Birthday.  I used the Create 4 Fun challenge #8 sketch for the layout.  And I'm entering it into the Paper Sundaes #57 masculine colors challenge. For a bit of dimension I printed him twice and popped up his sweet little face on foam dots.


This next bright and cheerful card I made using my Cosmo Cricket Delovely paper, I took inspiration from the bright colors in this pack. The image is called Springtime Basket Bunny.  I think this cheery card will go to my chemo angel buddy closer to Easter. I used the Eat, Sleep, Stamp sketch #118 for this one, but flipped it upside down.


Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!  Stay warm and be well.

both of these are super cute. I love the mix of papers on the birthday card but what caught my eye the most was the pop of color you used with the balloons. Great job.
