There's A Party Goin' On Right Here...

A celebration to last throughout the years...  Anybody remember Kool and the Gang?  I loved that Celebration song, back in the day!!   I just can't help it, but every time I look at this
card, I think Par-Tay!  It's cute, it's colorful, and it's fun!  That pretty much describes a party in my book.  LOL!!  I made this card for the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge #265Korin Sutherland, owner, illustrator for Sweet -n Sassy Stamps was guest hosting the challenge this week, and I was anxious to play along.  I finally had some time last night to sit down and play, and for me, that was a party in itself!

Want another reason to party?  Head over to Sweet -n Sassy Stamps, because it's DIGI DAY, and you will find this little adorable Cupcake Cocoa there, along with some other fabulous images for your card making and scrapbooking pleasure.   I colored Cocoa up with my Copic markers.  Have I told you that I REALLY like them?   Oh my!!  I surely do!!  It's still a learning process for me, as it's so much different than watercoloring, but I'm truly enjoying the process.  The DP is from the Basic Grey cupcake collection.  I used my EK success candle punch for the border, and scalloped circle and circle punches for the sentiment, which is from the SNSS Birthday Buddies stamp set.  I finished this card off with some yellow Dew Drops for a little bit of bling.  One more birthday card down, and LOTS more to go!!

Thank you so very much for stopping by today.  May God bless and keep you, today, and always!  Happy Stamping!

Love ya,

Lorie, this cupcake looks good enough to eat!! I love the fun colors and that sweet candle border you used. I'm glad you're having fun with your new markers -- looking at this, you would never know you are new to using them -- you color better than most of us who have been using them for a long time! Have fun playing. :-)
