Inky Impressions Challenge: Happy Birthday

Wow, it's Friday already. This week has Flown bye. So, Happy Friday all. What a week it has been. My kids started school on Tuesday, and I started the semester on Wednesday. I thought when the kids went to school I would have so much more time, but my time still seems to be limited. How does that happen?

Anyways, Today's card is made for this weeks Inky Impressions challenge. Since September is Nicole's (inky's mama & owner), we are celebrating her all month (Happy Early Birthday Nicole). This weeks challenge is to make a Birthday themed card.

I have had this piece of scrap DP hanging around forever and I have been dying to use it (as I love it), so I decided whatever stamp I was going to use, it was going to go with this paper. I was determined to finally use this DP. SO I grabbed my Inky Impressions "Lili has a secret" stamp and worked away. I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch and made it all work. I have to admit, my coloring isn;t the best here. I don;t love her res top, but I wanted the whole thing to match. I wish I had paper pieced the shirt, but it is what it is.

So, needing to make a Birthday card? Why not play along with the DT over at Inky Impressions. We would love for you to play with us. The more the Merrier.

Well, I am off to try and get some things done. The kids are off today. I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday weekend and thanks for stopping by today. It is really appreciated. Sometimes we get into a creative funk, but is always uplifting when you read such wonderful comments. So again, thank you!!!!!

One more thing before I go, it has been awhile since I have posted some blog candy, so stay tuned tomorrow for some "Booful" blog candy", maybe even a MS punch or something! Have a great weekend!
