Inside: Happy Birthday!

You can only call your good friends “old Fart” and get away with it! So that is who I made this card for. Also, to give her a chuckle.

Bugaboo is the sponsor at For Fun Challenges this week as we celebrate “A Friends Birthday”. Not just ANY birthday card but it must be for a FRIEND!! If you are needing an image to be able to meet the challenge check out Bugaboo there is something for everyone!  And the winner at For Fun Challenge will get 7 free stamps from Bugaboo!!


1) Cute Card Thursday – Challenge 188 – Sketch. Use the Sketch provided. I think you can see the sketch. I took the bottom piece and made it go diagonal instead of it going horizontal across the bottom.

2) Creative Craft World –  Have  ‘numbers’  or  ‘add a sentiment’. This challenge will run until 5th November at 10pm GMT

Inside: BUY IT!   Happy Birthday!

I have another friend that this image fit perfectly so I decided to make two cards! Plus I wanted to play in The Play Date Cafe color challenge. It was fun going out of my norm and I ended up with a cute card. I probably would of went with bright colors if it wasn’t for the challenge.


1) The Play Date Cafe (PDCC105) –  This week’s color story is from our terrific Color Story Coordinator, Jaclyn Miller and her suggested color palette this week is… Kraft/Taupe…Flesh…Cadet Blue

2) Bows & Berries Challenge #13 – Clean & Simple

3) CAS-ual Fridays (CFC26) –  Create a Clean And Simple card using the sketch
