Happy Birthday

Good Morning.  I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  I am heading off today for a day of stamping with Friends.  These days are so much fun.  The only think I hate is the packing.  I want to bring everything but really try to concentrate on the things I know I will use.  I think I did well this time.  We will see what happens the 1st time I say "I wish I had brought....."

It is Sunday so that means it is a new Stempeltraume challenge.  Today's theme is Animals!  My biggest challenge was what Animal to use.  I decided on this Sassy Cheryl freebie!  I just fell in love with him when I saw it.  We all have animal stamps.  Play along!  You can win a prize for just doing what you love!

The other wonderful challenge themes this card meets are:

Secret Crafter - Distressing - I distressed the edges of the CS.  I think it really looks good with the colors that I chose for this.

Dare you to digi - Flowers - This was easy.  The bear is holding flowers and I added flowers at the bottom.

Simple Doodles - Not a spring Chicken - You need to use something that is old.  Mine are the dew drops.  I bought a whole bunch of these when they first came out and I never use them.  I'm not sure why but they are not something I ever pick up.  The ribbon is also old.  I found it at the bottom of my ribbon holder.  I had just enough to make this bow.

S2G - Spring has sprung with Flowers - At my house one of the things that says Spring are the Bees.  I have a real problem with them every year.  Unfortunetly they are not as cute as the one on this card.  I love the flowers that this bear is holding.  It looks like he just picked them from the garden.

Fab & Funky - Get it all out - These challenges are a challenge for me because I always want to use my new stuff but .... I really needed something different than brads or pearls so I used my dew drops.  I can't remember the last time I put these on a card.  I used 8 on this card which is good to use up some of my stash of them.

Crafty Creations - Distressing - I distressed the CS.  I have always liked a distressing on cads.  It adds texture without adding additional items.  I thought it fit well with this card.

Everybody Art - Sketch.  - I loved this sketch when I saw it.  Once I picked the stamp to use for this weeks challenge I knew I could use this sketch.  I love the way this came out.

Creative Card Crew - Happy Birthday - I thought this would make a cute Birthday card.  The Bear with the flowers reminds me of kids when they pick the flowers in the backyard and give them to you like they are a bouquet of roses. 

A Spoonful of Sugar - Happy Birthday - This is the one time of the year I have no family Birthdays.  I guess this card will go into my file for the future.  It's always good to have them already made.

Pile it on - Spring - Flowers and Bees - Hello Spring!  I love flowers, and hate the bees they attract but this one is cute and can't sting me. 

Stamp with Fun - Animals - I love this little bear.  I couldn't wait to use him!

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you like my card.  Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment.  I love hearing from everyone.
