Phindy’s Place Challenge ~ Birthday!


Isn’t that just the cutest face ever??   I love the new Summer Cuties  that Phindy has been releasing recently, each one is cuter than the last!    This one is appropriately named Squeezes.    Our challenge this week at Phindy’s Place is Birthday cards/projects.



I had fun with this one, and since I’m hopelessly flower-challenged, I used some Martha Stewart daisy vine stickers as a border on this card ~ SUPER easy!  

So, be sure to pop over to the Phindy’s Place Challenge Blog to take a peek at the awesome birthday card samples from the Design Team.   We also have a Guest Designer joining us this week!    I hope YOU are able to join us for this easy-peasy challenge.

  17. Hi Mary,

    Wow another beautiful summer card. Great colours :o)
    You do such awesome things with your cards. Love her pieced top and the way you put the sticker flowers and vines all around the frame. The ribbon is the perfect one to use.
    I know I always say the same thing but your colouring just ‘rocks’ ( I think that is what the young people say anyway LOL )
    Big hugs ~

  18. This card is gorgeous! I love that daisy sticker (although I was really hoping it was a punch – I wanted it!) :-)Traci

  20. gorgeous…your coloring is amazing!

  21. Darling…and I vote for sticker flowers any day!

  22. Oh Mary, you just manage to show off every image you get your hands on to it’s full potential! This is an amazing card and of course the fact that it’s one of my fave colour schemes makes me even more excited.
    I got a bit more sleep last night as hubby helped with sleep monitoring, he’s off today. S I’m feeling a bit more human this morning. The new medication my boy has been on for last couple of days seems to be working. Maybe there’s light at the end of the tunnel 🙂

  23. OH! Mary this is a sweetie! I love daisies, and this vine gives just a wonderful detail. The image is adorable again this dot shading technique (I must try that) is quite beautiful. Love it all.

  24. i pop over here and just drool !!! your cards are pure eye candy!

  25. Another wonderful card. There has never been a card of yours that I have not loved! Bravo!
