Let's Party

Happy Weekend, blogger friends! Thanks for stopping! Today I have a card to share with you that will be added to the CB42DD (Card Box for two dear daughters). I mentioned on an earlier post that my two daughters, twenty-something girls, asked me to make a box of cards for each of them so that they'd have hand made cards to give away. So today, I made two of this card. So easy to make the 2nd card when the first is designed & the cardstock, ink and stamps are already out. The girls won't mind having identical cards because they have different sets of friends.

I got the idea for the sketch from CAS-ual Friday challenge (CFC49). (see below). When I first saw this sketch challenge I didn't have an idea. So I decided to think about it later & went over to the Play Date Cafe to see their challenge. (PDCC128). (see below) When I saw the saw the fun colors of "flamingo pink, bright orange, & white" I remembered my purchase from last weekend. And the card fell together from there. I love when that happens, don't you?


 So anyway...last weekend I picked up a Citrus cardstock matstack from DCWV & these cute little party hats in fun colors and patterns by K & Company at my local craft store with a discount coupon. My intent was to make birthday cards for the CB42DD. Just perfect! My card base & top layer is Neenah Solar White. The hot pink layer is SU! retired Pink Passion, the textured orange from the DCWV matstack. I used SU! Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo ink on the SU! sentiment from the retired Let's Party set. (circa 2003).

Again, thanks for stopping by. I've gotta' run now to a get together with my Crafty girlfriends, but I'll be back late tonight & tomorrow to blog hop & see your fabulous creations. Have a great Saturday!
Hugs, Marilyn
