You and I in a little toy shop...Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got ...

Good morning, yall! I hope you're having a great day so far. It's a great day around here...it's Cole's 6th Birthday!! He didn't seem that excited about it...we'll see how he is after school (I think they get to wear a birthday crown).

Today I've got some cards to show you from the Verve Release last week...I realized I forgot to post these!

This one uses the new Black Tie Birdies set. I wanted my birdie to be floating in the air with the balloons...so cute! That ribbon is 7/8" Offray Grosgrain...I smooshed it under my sewing machine foot and stitched down the center.

This is a little treat container I made using Some Bunny. Isn't he cute??? I covered him in Liquid Applique and paper pieced his shirt. Once the Liquid Applique cooled off, I went over it with a light brown Copic marker. The sentiment fit perfectly on a tag from the Cuttlebug Tiny Tags die.

This card is probably my favorite of all of the ones I created for the release. I stamped the silhouettes from Abundant Blessings in Baja Breeze and Soft Sky. Then I inked up the flower image in Dark Brown chalk ink and stamped it on top of the blue. Then I added the sentiment from So Happy and I created a ribbon slider to run my Chocolate Satin ribbon through.

And here's my final card...bright, huh?? This one uses Birthday Surprise. I stamped the background panel with the filigree background stamp from Grateful Elegance, and then sponged around the edges. The birdie and balloons were stamped and colored with Copic markers, with parts popped up for dimension.

Well, guys I gotta run...I hope you enjoyed my cards today. Make sure you check out the Verve Blog for the new Project Parade Challenge.

Also, Kim at My Favorite Things is running a special for a very good cause. Click -->HERE<-- for all the details.

Have a fabulous day!!
