WOYWW #240 ~ Happy Bird-day!

Wow, it's Wednesday already!!
 This week is zipping by. 
And one blessing of having the kids back in school
 is I actually know what day of the week it is :)
No picture of my desk this week but we are thankful for Julia!

I have a quick post and card that I whipped up - 
I know, I know ... 
I can be a little long winded at times :)

My card today is bright and fun as birthdays should be!
 I love bold, fun colors and fall back to them often,
especially when you find in your stash some super fun bday dsp!

You probably all know by now how much I adore The Alley Way Stamps.
They are super fun and have a whimsical flair which I love!
They stamp crisp and clean and making coloring super fun,
and paper-piecing, too!
My favorite technique!
For today's bright and happy card, I actually printed off a digi
for the front and double layered it.  For the inside,
I stamped the sentiment from my All About You stamp set.

This is my 10th card this year ~ 
moving right along with the 100/100 challenge!
I'll also enter this card into the TAWS challenge to make a birthday card,
as well as Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #150 ~ Use Polka Dots!
Charisma Cardz - Birthdays

Thanks for your visit today and
as always - stay warm and safe out there!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
