Wild Birthday

 My birthday month celebration continues!  Although I sadly must admit, "wild" birthday celebrations are long gone :)  So I'm settling for gettin' wild creating with these sweet little guys!

 For my card, I stated with Reverse Confetti floral pattern paper from the Under the Umbrella pad.  Then I cut Cloud White and Iced Aqua cardstock using Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cuts. My 'wild' little buddies and sentiment are from Lift Me Up set and Confetti Cuts. To finish, I added this confetti banner cut from Flamingo cardstock using the Circle Garland Confetti Cuts.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:




Saturday Coffee Cafe - Keep Calm

Welcome to the Saturday Coffee Cafe featured on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog -- so glad to see you!


 The definition of "zen" is "having or showing qualities such as meditative calmness and an attitude of acceptance".  That certainly explains my state of mind when I've had my coffee!

This wonderful cup image is one of three stamps offered by STAMPlorations - so much fun to color!  The coffee word die is also from STAMPlorations and the background die is a retired one from My Favorite Things.

Thanks to these challenges for letting me share!

So keep calm and have a cup of coffee!  Until next time...

Reverse Confetti August Sketch For You To Try Challenge

Wow - where did the summer go?  It's mid-August, but I'm not ready to say 'goodbye' to summer just yet!  I love to see nature in full bloom during this season and I'm so glad there's still time to enjoy it all :)  And speaking of more still have plenty of time to play in Reverse Confetti's August Sketch For You To Try challenge!

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month. The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though! You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog at the end of the month.
