Freshly Made Sketches - Make a Wish

I was still in the mood to be creative, and I had a pile of supplies on my table.  At this point I have made quite a few cards from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose.  It was time for one more. 

Here is the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches . . . 

And here is my design . . . 

I love this stamp, which is an old one from Technique Tuesday.  It seemed perfect for a little birthday card.  The inside of the card reads, "May all of your dreams come true.  Happy Birthday!" 

Supplies Used:  
Cardstock from Bazzill
Pattern Paper and Chipboard Embellishments from My Mind's Eye
Stamps from Technique Tuesday and My Favorite Things
Ink from Memento and Stazon
Ribbon from stash

Approaching Fabulous (just for a weekend)

This was an amazingly creative weekend for me, and lately I have not had those very often.  So I was super excited to create this card today, because I felt I was "approaching fabulous."   I created it for the Paper Smooches challenge, which was an "anything goes" challenge.  And in reality, I think I will be giving it to a co-worker who is going through some tough times at work.

So, why was I feeling so fabulous?  I was super creative and productive this weekend!  I will post more on that later in the week.  

And tomorrow, it's back to work in my office setting where most of my creativity is squashed like an unwanted bug.    It was great, even though it was just for the weekend.
