Bloggers Challenge & Inky Impressions Challenge



Happy Friday all!!!!! Wow, here we are at the last few weeks of summer (sad). The weather in New Hampshire has been lovely and I am not really ready for the kids to go back to school in 2 weeks, nor am I ready to start classes again (really sad).

Anyways, todays card is made for both the Bloggers challenge, which theme is Birthday, and this weeks Inky Impressions challenge which is to have a tag involvement. Well, I made my whole card into a tag. It seems the perfect size for a b-day card.

I used Inky Impression's Spring Lili, and nicely fit her into one of my new border stamps (I forget who makes them, maybe DRS), I used my handy dandy Basic Grey paper ,and Violoa, Happy Birthday tag card (hehehehe).

Guess what???? Over at Inky Impressions they are giving away a $10.00 GC if you play in there "tag your it challenge" this week. Also, you have to use a Inky Impressions image. Don;t have any? We'll, Nicole (the owner) has posted a FREE image here for everyone to play along. So if you get a chance, we would love for you to join us over at Inky Impressions. I can't wait to see what you made. Leave me a comment so I can see your card!

Also, if you get a chance check out what the other "Oh So Creative" ladies of Blogger's challenge came up with for Birthday cards.

Well, I am off to pack for my vacation. We are heading to Ocean City Maryland tomorrow. If you know of any Stamp/Scrapbooks stores I could visit in that area, I would love to get the names. I will also be in the Williamsburg Virginia area for a couple days as well. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and Happy Creating!!!

Supplies
Stamps: Inky Impressions, OCL, Hat, and balloons, DRS (?) boarder.
Paper: Basic Grey
Ink:copics, Memento black
