Hi there! How's your weekend going? Today was my first day off in 12 days so I was excited to not have to set the alarm last night. However, I don't think I ever need to set it again because the Ella alarm was right on time purring in my face at 5am and demanding her breakfast. Ugh! No rest for the wicked around here...
Anyway Luis and I did some errands and then I got a little crafty time so I have 2 cards to share. First up is for Freshly Made Sketches. This MFT bear is one of my favourite birthday images - probably because I wish he was delivering that gorgeous cake to me! He's coloured with Copics, fussy cut and popped up on foam tape inside the stitched circle. The background paper is from American Crafts. I'm also going to play along with the No Toppings portion of the challenge over at Seize the Birthday.

My next card is for the Muse challenge. I was inspired by the rose, colours, layers and die cut sentiment on Jenni's card. The rose is from an NBUS Clearly Besotted set and the pink striped paper is from Doodlebug. The sentiment is a combo of a Mama Elephant die and a Fresh Squeezed Stamps stamp. I'm also going to enter it in the Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.
