Birthday Wishes

Hello Blogger friends! Happy Friday to you all. 

Another weekend is upon us. Hope you have some fun summer plans or even better crafty plans. Nothing special here but it is Father's Day weekend. 

I picked up an electric popcorn maker for my hubby. He started to make it on stove but ours is a glass cooktop and that isn't an easy feat without scratching it. He was careful but it's a lot more work and an electric unit will make it much easier. He doesn't know that I bought this so it will be a surprise. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #895 on Splitcoaststampers. Chris was our hostess and she chose soft seafoam, garden green and soft suede for her color trio. Optional was to use any animal.

soft seafoam, garden green, soft suede

I have had the Counting Sheep stamps set and dies since the 2021 sale-a-bration event and never used them. So Chris' challenge was just the opportunity to pull them out and design a birthday card. And also to use some elements from some older Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kits.

I had the stair step base in my stash and used it to create this card. The sheep I finished off with fun flock for added interest. Although it doesn't show in the photo well.

The wishes sentiment is from an older Paper Pumpkin kit, as is the sentiment banner. The Birthday and celebrate sentiments are from Paper Pumpkin kits. The balloons and fence are part of the counting Sheep die set.

This will be a birthday card for the many kids I give them to. The fun flocked sheep any kid will love. And, that's my card for this post. So until next time......God bless.
