A Summer Birthday

Today's my mum's birthday. Unfortunately her card sits here on my desk, unsent. I'm so far behind that I haven't even made my Father's Day cards. How long do I have before my being late turns into being ahead for next year?

This beautiful Stampendous image reminds me of my mum and her flower gardens. I love it when the two of us walk around looking at all of her pretty flowers. We used to do this everytime we visited my grandmother as well. Fond memories. Happy Birthday Mum! I hope your day is filled with happiness and pretty flowers.

My birthday card is perfect for the Stampendous Saturday Challenge. June's theme is summer. Simply create a summer themed project of some sort and add the direct link for your project to the collection on the Stampendous blog. You have until Thursday, June 28 at 11:59 PM EST. One lucky crafter (drawn at random) will receive this fabulous new Friendly Phrases Perfectly Clear stamp set:

You don't have to use Stampendous products on your project but if you do use them, your entry will count twice, which increases your chance of winning. Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.

It would be terrific if you would join in the fun and play along with all of us at Stampendous.

Please check out the Stampendous blog on Saturday for a roundup of all the great summer projects created this week by Stampendous Design Team members.

My card uses the Stampendous Cling Daffodil Girl image stamped on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with my Copics. I love this stamp.It is so much fun to color.

I also used the flourish from the Stampendous Cling Jumbo Tiger Lily set stamped in VersaMark ink on the teal panel. The sentiment is from the Stampendous Orchid Greetings set. Do you recognize the layout of my card? I'm playing along with this week's Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. This is sketch SC391.

Thanks for visiting today. Please check out all of the glorious summer flowers over at Stampendous.

Happy Birthday Mum!
