Hi everyone! Sorry for no post yesterday, but I spent Saturday with my daughters and their husbands and my husband, and on Sunday I was cooking for the week and then we took Riley out to the park for quite a while. I have to tell you about Riley's outing. We were out in the woods and she's sniffing all the trees and finding holes in the trees to sniff out. One tree that had fallen over had rotted out some and she was insisting there was something really interesting in that tree! Brock pulled one section of the tree away to open it up more and she jumped up in the tree and burrowed all the way in! I was afraid for a minute that she wouldn't be able to back out, but she did. Then she found this tree that had a hollowed out place at it's trunk and she was sticking her head in and trying to pull pieces off with her mouth. She went at this thing for ten or fifteen minutes and then she started kind of yelping - it sounded at first like she was frustrated that she was working all this time and not getting anywhere, but then her yelping turned into more distress and fear. Brock and I were just about to go see what was up when she pulled out and was fine. We think her collar had gotten hung on something in there and it scared her for a minute. That minute of fear wasn't enough to stop her though! She was right back at it!
Okay, enough about miss Riley and her adventures! Let's talk cards! Yesterday was a brand new challenge on the Squigglefly Blog, and Rhonda has come up with one close to my heart. It's Birthdays! You can make a card, a tag, a gift box; whatever you want as long as it has to do with birthdays! You need to see the absolutely fantastic cards the design team has made. They are really so great! You need to play along, and Rhonda is even giving a prize as incentive if you play with a Squigglefly image - go check out her blog for the details.
Anyway, here is my birthday card
I used the Happy Birthday Sign Cake image by Gemma Mortlock. Does this cake not look YUMMY? I swear I was ready to bake a cake after coloring this. The sentiment is a stamp that I got from the dollar bin at Michaels. I added glitter to the candle tops. The only thing I wasn't happy with was that I chose to color the confetti dots in the background. I didn't really like how it looked once I had done it.
Well, I wish you a great day and thanks for looking!
