Sorry I forgot your birthday {Paper Smooches SPARKS}

Hello friends,

I hope you are having a great weekend!  I am popping in this morning with a card I created for the latest Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge.  This week ANYTHING GOES and here's what I made...

Do you ever have trouble getting birthday cards to their intended recipients in a timely manner?  I sure do and that's just one of the reasons that I just adore the sentiments included in the Happy Birthday stamp set.   I stamped a pair of the sentiments on a journaling card and added the Party Hamster using the Party Posse stamp set and Posse Icon Dies.  I stamped the aqua card stock with the Dippy Dots background stamp for a fun party backdrop. 

So, now it's your turn!  Make anything you like using Paper Smooches Stamps and link up your creation to the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog by Saturday, March 7 at 11:59 PST.  The winner of this week's challenge will receive a $30.00 gift certificate to the Paper Smooches shop!  Yay!!! 

Be sure to check out the inspiration from the other Paper Smooches SPARKS team members playing along with this week's challenge: 

That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I can't wait to see what you create!

  3. I love seeing ideas for Belated Birthdays since it seems that TOO often I am late with my handmade birthday wishes for others!! I always try to be on time - but alas, sometimes, things just get in the way!!! But i love the cuteness and super fun humor of your card and the way it totally made me smile!!! Love the design and the cool styling - the colors make this card really pop!! Have a super great week!!!

  4. So sweet and fun! I love this sentiment LOL

  5. I LOOOOOOOOOOVE this card, Katie! I LOVE the papers and the stamping--- LOVE that sentiment (I've been wanting to use it for awhile, but I never know when to use it or how to use it without making someone mad! LOL!)!

    LOVE the party hat on the hamster! FAB card all around:) YOU ROCK! LOOOOOOOOOOOVE YOU!

  6. This is ADORABLE, Katie! Love it!
