Another fun day of crafting today! What a blessing that I could spend time stamping and that you came by to see what I did!!

We had another birthday in the family - my older brother, who lives in Louisiana. I really enjoyed coloring this image with Copics - it is the Birthday Bear image from our very own Stars and Stamps free digi collection (look for the blue "S&S Free Digis" button on the right side of the page near the top). The DP is from DCWV Linen Closet. There is a sentiment on this card but it is on the inside since the image really communicates without any words what the card is about. It is a great card for a child, but it fits my brother well and I think he will enjoy it as he is very tall just like the cake. I wonder what I did before Spellbinder dies came along, and I have a joke with my DH Chuck that each time I use my electric Big Shot I say, "Have I thanked you today for agreeing that an electric die cut machine was worth the extra investment?" Indeed, it is for me, as I usually do make multiples of each card I post and send them to OWH!

Please feel free to leave a comment below if you would like. I always enjoy reading them! Blessings on your day,


  1. Where have I been? I didn't even know they had an electric Big Shot on the market?! I thought Tim Holtz's Vagabond was the first one to be revealed and that was just this past week at CHA! I must be living under a rock Heh! :D
    Your card is so neat with the glittered frosting and those fabulous blue colors! I love love love the DP and your great coloring of this image. I'm sure your brother will love it.
    I just added the Spellbinders 10 dies to my collection after seeing them reasonably priced at a convention last week. I'm hopelessly addicted too :)Have a fabulous week my friend!
