Birthday Buddy

Good morning and happy Sunday! Time already for the mid-month reminder at Penny Black and More, if you haven't played along yet, there is still time to join us for a chance at one of the wonderful prizes. And don't forget you can join up to 3 times for more chances to win. Our theme this month is Add a Sentiment.

For today I played again with the set "Buddy and Duck", such a cute set for all kinds of kids cards or baby cards. This time I made a boy themed card.

The puppy was stamped onto xpress it blending card and colored with copic markers. I fussy cut the image. The balloon was stamped and colored a second time so I could add it to the card with dimesionals. Papers are from packs I picked up earlier this year at Hobby Lobby - sorry I don't remember the brands. Embellished with a button and twine and added a couple die cut stars (whimsy stamps die) and a die cut cloud (memory box die). A Martha Stewart grass die was used for the grass. Sentiment is part of the cute set by Penny Black. A white Pitt marker by Faber Castell was used to add some white to the dots on the balloon, and I finished off the card by adding sparkles  using some wink of stella on the stars and balloon.

 Both the card and Penny Black stamp set (brand new) are listed in my Etsy shop if you are interested. 

And that would be all for today, hope you're having a wonderful sunny day, still summery warm over here but I have noticed some trees turn color already. Not much longer until Fall is officially here.
