Good morning everyone! And some birthday candy

I hope that the long weekend kept everyone safe and rested. Now I'm a little excited for fall to be here. Labor day in my mind marks the end of summer - even though it seems to be getting hotter and hotter out.

I think I've said it before, my favorite time of year is fall. The leaves are changing, there begins a crispness in the air. But according to the forecast for this coming week, I don't think there will be any crispness in the air any time soon.
Enough of the sappy stuff ~ let's get to work!

This card is still not what I wanted. I have this image in my head and it just wont work out on paper! Has that ever happened to you?
I've got this image in my head but when I sit down to create the card it just won't come out the way I want to. The card still turned out cute I guess ~ but it's not what I wanted.
I used a stamp set from TAC that's been discontinued - but everyone has a set similar to this one I'm sure.

The base card is Pixie Pink and the DP is some I found in my scrap drawer already cut - I'm not sure who it's from. I stamped the little candle from a SU! set called Birthday Banter for each day of the month except for the actual birthday. I stamped the date for the day. I then punched out the circle using my 3/4" and 1/2" circle punches. The cupcakes are from a Stampendous set "Hey there Cupcake" set and the present is also from them. The hat is from Hero Arts. I stamped each and cut them out and positioned them at different places on the card. I used some stickles to jazz it up a bit and I was done.
I was in need of making a card to send to a new found friend on line. I want
ed to use some of my yummy paper from SU! I was so in love with the Berry Bliss paper that they had - and now that it's gone I had to fall in love with another, Bella Rose. To me it's almost as nice as the Berry Bliss ~ but then anything that has to do with card making and is brown is ok in my book!

Just a simple card to go with the post it note holder I made for her too. The card is nothing but DP and ribbon, with a small sentiment in the corner from my TAC set Enjoy Today. Sometimes simpler is better.


There is another lady that I've met on line thru one of the forums that I belong to. She's having a bit of a hard time right now and I wanted to make something that might cheer her up. And of course one of my favorite flowers is daises. Some more DP that I have in a drawer that I don't know who it's from. I do have lot's and lot's of paper like that.
The daisy is from TAC and it's called Gerbera Daisy. The base card is Ballet Blue. I stamped the image and colored it in with my pencils and gamsol then layered it on to a piece of Creamy Caramel and sponged some Creamy Caramel ink around the edge of the image panel. The card is layered with the DP and Creamy Caramel. I added a length of ribbon to it too.
Once the card was all put together I added some stickles to the flower to give it a little shine. I sure hope that it brightens her day.
Since my hits are getting up there, I want to offer up some candy - "birthday" candy that is. Next week is my birthday and I was thinking that I would offer up a present to you all.
Make me a birthday card and post it on your blog. Then link it back to me and post a message on this post. I will then draw thru random.org the winner of some blog candy that I will be giving to you. Think of it as my birthday present to YOU. Let's see how many people we can get to play this.....
I hope that you all have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Joani

If that's not as good as what you had in mind then you must have some crazy stuff in there! ;O) It's incredible! What a brilliant idea to use the calendar and little candles!?! That's the essence of CUTEness. Love the layout on the ribbon card. SO classy! And the flowers super sweet. Hope the lady in the forum is doing better; I'm sure that your card will cheer her up! :O)
