First of a Flurry of Posts...Little Tangles + Seize the Birthday + Fusion #16

Yes, I've been on a bit of a card-making frenzy since returning from my family visit.  The reasons are plentiful: oodles of new stuff that had our mailbox crammed to overflow (budget crammed to overflow, too!); having 'time' to play, before work starts anew on Wednesday (and I still don't know 100% what my 'role' is this year. Guess I'll find out after the staff-gathering pancake breakfast...); being obsessed.  There you go: three reasons!  Anyway, since I have several cards to post, and I'm near to losing track of what goes where, I shall seal my, fingertips. and get this show rolling.

First up is my card for the absolutely delightful Little Tangles Birthday Bash celebration

 for Neat and Tangles, specifically the 'Let's Eat Cake' challenge.  No N&T stamps yet (hello, mail delivery people...waiting, patiently), so I borrowed the charming freebies.  I matched them up with the colours from Fusion #16, (such a pretty image),and since it is a birthday card, we're heading to Seize the Birthday, as well.  Anything Goes = awesome!!

Three challenges: this may be a far!!

Here's my Fusion Birthday Eat Cake inspired card...

Simple and rather 'cas' for me, and yes, it would be 1,000 times prettier with sequins. They're coming...I'm excited!!

Thanks so much for dropping in; your company and comments are more than welcome!


  1. awesome chock full of challenges post! great use of the digi's...can't wait to see you ink up your new n&t stamps and play with your sequins!

  2. I am totally crushing on this card in a big way! I love how you positioned the sentiment vertically and coloured in the open spaces! And the colouring of the cakes is divine!! Kind of makes me want to have a big ol' slice of cake right now!! Ok, who am I kidding, I *always* feel like a big ol; slice of cake - corner piece with extra icing, please!! And three challenges in one...NICE!!!

  3. Fabulous birthday card with such bright and cheery colours. Thanks so much for joining us at Seize the Birthday!

  4. Gosh, that is so cute! Love how you've repeated the sentiment and the cake! Great idea. The other part which I just LOVE is the stitched look around the outside. How did you do that? Think it finishes off the card perfectly!

  5. I just love the CAS design of this card! Thanks for playing along at Seize The Birthday :)

  6. Love your clean card and your coloring is fabulous! Thanks so much for playing with us at Fusion!
