Boy do we have a great blog hop for you today. Birthday Birthday Birthdays!

I am so excited I don't even know where to start!!

This Card...oh how I LOVED making this!!

These are new products from the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration catalog.
I'm in LOVE with everything! 

As y'all know, I love all things wonky.  So this was fun to create even though it's pretty simple!

White accents colored with a Sharpie make all things matchy matchy.
White Perfect Accents, glimmer paper, and a stapler could anchor this fun sentiment!

Ha!  Let's Taco 'Bout how AWESOME this stamp set is!!!!!
I love Taco Tuesday, Stampin' UP! and T-shirts....so EVERYTHING about this card!!!

Coloring and water coloring are all the rage these days.  Call me a purest, but I still use my stamp pads and Aqua Painters to water color.  You just give your stamp pad a good squish, (while it's closed!) and when you open it up there's a splotch of ink on the lid.  Dip your Aqua Painter in the ink and use it like a paint brush!  For subtle color or larger surfaces, I squeeze some extra water out of the AP and let it pool in the lid with the ink.
You could just as easily get a re-inker, add a drop into a palette with a drop or two of water and then use the Aqua Painter to color your image.  either way is easy peasy!!

Thanks for stopping by!
