Happy Hump Day!

Yaaayyyy....I finally got to make a card!!! I have been so craft deprived lately I almost {shock horror} forgot what to do lol. Lucky an idea popped into my head on Monday and this is the end result...


I don't seem to know how to make quick cards anymore but this is as close as it gets lol. I LOVE Lily and felt she deserved to be the centre of attention without her sidekick Magnum. Both Lily and the balloon are from the Add-On set. I cut the felt using a PTI die


First I stamped Lily then just added the balloon and voila! There's so much you can do with the set on it's own.


I was sorting out my felt the other day and these three colours (Lush Jade Green, Coconut Ice and Lilac Rose) were piled on top of each other. They were gorgeous together so this is how the colour scheme came about...accidentally on purpose lol.


I Mary J'd the inside using the remnant piece of felt from the die cutted ric rac on the front (follow?)

I'd love to enter my card in the following challenges:

A Spoonful of Sugar - Birthdays
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Happy Birthday/Celebration
Crazy Amigo Challenge - Anything Goes (open till August 16th)
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Sew Mad - Real or Faux
Birthday Sundaes - Birthday Card (birthday wording on front)
Card Makin Mamas - Birthday Cards
Raise The Bar - Anything Goes
The Stampman - Stitching

That's it from me today. I'm hoping to get in a bit more crafting at some point...maybe after dinner. Now that I'm back into the swing of things!
Don't forget the LCI sale is still on until Monday 15th...buy one stamp get one 1/2 price AND free postage WORLD WIDE!!! Now that's too good to miss :-D
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by
Catch ya later x
