Today, I had a much needed play day in my craft room! I made several cards using my computer for the outside sentiment and a stamp set Mel gave me of misc. sentiments plus SU's Simple Said set, a single wooden stamp I got years ago at Michael's and a Stamps of Life set called Thanks2You. Pool Party was the ink and the background color I used. I'm sending a version of this card to my pen pal, LA, in Canada because I LOVE getting all of the beautiful cards she creates!


...and then I finally had time to play with a stamp set LA gave me when we met at last in March this year!  It's by Clear Art Stamps and called Seaside.

Happy birthday to my dear
dear friend Alice!

LOVE this SU Create a Cupcake set and
the punch that coordinates with it!
The card needed something...and then
it hit me...adhesive pearls as the sprinkles!

This SWEET color combo is
SU Pool Party ink (stamped off once before
stamping on the cardstock) and 
Memento LuLu Lavender.

To make the awning, I used the SU word
window punch and glued each strip
side-by-side onto a 7/8" x 4" piece of
white card stock - then scored along the top
and the bottom and bent each strip to
get the look of an awning.
The top of the awning was then attached with
Tombow Multi Liquid Glue.
