Happy Birthday!

I've sat at my desk the last few days and not being able to create something I was happy with.  Lost my mojo, I think.  When faced with days like these, I go back to what I love most, i.e. colouring - doesn't matter if the light/shadows aren't right, just keep colouring.  I used one of my favourite MFT stamp PI Sunshiny Day, it makes me smile.  The papers are from Studio Calico's Autumn Press - I love the colours of that collection.

A closer look at the card:

This little guy really looks like he's having massive fun being in the sun! I added some glitter to the hearts on his shirt with Atyou Spica Clear pen, and also embossed the pattened papers with linen texture embossing plate.  This card was created with help from the MFT Card sketch found here.

What are you creating today?  I'd love to see it - just drop me a line, and I'll come visit.

Have a happy day!!

Hi Kary - love your wee person - your colouring is as impressive as ever.

My mojo was strained today - took me over four attempts to get one card even vaguely as I wanted it... sure doesn't look like what I had in my head as I started!!

The orange oval border stands out and gives "life" to the card.

I can surely see why this image makes you smile! It's fun and sunny!! The yellow in your card adds to that as well, I like it a lot!!!
Hugs, Wendy

This is SOOO adorable!!! I LOVE the Pure Innocence line so much! Really need to get some of them - yours came out fantastic! Love the colors - if this is lack of mojo, then I want some too!
