Time to Celebrate!!
My card today is a fun birthday card I created using Papertrey Ink's ingenious "Scene I - Celebration Dies" I knew I just had to own these great dies when I saw them. They make for a fast and fabulous card!!
I also used the Birthday Cheer Die and the Balloon Bash Cover Plate Die. You can whip these cards up really quickly! .... well that is if you aren't me LOL I seem to take forever when I make a card.
I cut my stars from (an expensive!) sheet of glitter paper from Michael's (but it was worth it!). I cut the balloons from white card stock and them inked them with sponges. Finally I cut the word Celebrate from a matching light green cs and gave it a bit of an Ombre' look using ink and a sponge. Tied it up with some Baker's Twine from my stash and felt like going to a party!!
Speaking of parties..... there is a fun party going on at the Seize the Birthday challenge blog. This weeks's celebration is made extra special because it is Colleen Foelker's birthday!! Colleen is not only a DTM for Seize the Birthday but she is the owner of the One Smile Lifts a Spirit blog
Check out this fun challenge blog and be sure to visit Colleen and wish her a Happy Birthday!
I have been having so much fun sharing some of my favorite pictures with you from the beautiful area we've moved to. I want to say a special thank you to all of you who have left such delightful comments about them! : ) it is really my pleasure to share them with you.
Today I have a couple Rocky Mountain Goat pictures. We have seen these amazing animals twice in the wild since moving here last year. This one was near the road just after we left Mt. Rushmore one day. We were super close but unfortunately I only had my "point and shoot" camera with me so the quality is not very good.
The next time we saw one of these goats it was on the side of these rocky cliffs.
Don't squint your eyes because the goat is not in this picture! LOL We didn't even have a camera with us that day! I could have kicked myself! The goat was nearly to the top of the main rock formation there. It is shocking how they can actually climb around on those craggy - uneven rocks!!
This picture was captured at Bear Country USA - it is a wildlife park. It would have been a great shot if the goat hadn't moved it's head! LOL But the tree is sharp! giggles oh well can't win em all - you can still see how incredible these creatures are.
We have enjoyed an incredible weekend!! so warm and spring like!! It is really hard to stay indoors on days like this!! But pretty soon the sun will set and maybe you can guess where I might be! I've been working on a card for the ColourQ challenge. I've thrown out several attempts so far! I might not make that challenge : ( shucks sometimes things just don't make it from my head to my paper. : )
Thank you so much for stopping by!! Have a great day!
