Fresh Brewed Designs Gift Girl


Ever go to create something and everything goes wrong?  Well, that is what happened to me tonight.  I wanted to make a birthday card for my sister Cathy.  She is 11 months younger than me.  When you have 13 brothers and sisters, these things happen...sigh...anyway, I also wanted to enter the Fresh Brewed Weekly Challenge at  I knew that the challenge was use a rubber stamp, I have known that all week, but I have been very busy.  So I went to the blog tonight and saw that I had 3 hours and 27 minutes until the challenge closed...yikes!  I have HUNDREDS maybe MILLIONS of Fresh Brewed Designs Rubber Stamps, so my biggest problem was picking just one.  I decided on Gift Girl I love this stamp because you can use her for Christmas, Birthdays, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, she works for a lot of occasions!  I decided to see what kind of card I could make with my new Cameo Silhouette and found a birthday cake shaped card.  So far, so good.  Got out my black stamp and stamped the image.  Started to color it and the ink ran!  That never happens with digital stamps.  Okay, different ink.  Got the stamp colored, got everything glued on the the back of the card!  Agggghhhh!  So here is my card for my sweet, darling sister.  I hope she likes it.  Can you tell that's a cake?  I had to photograph it lying down because it would not stand up.

I am going to bed!  My friend Trish (we have been friends since elementary school) is coming over tomorrow so I know it is going to be a good day!  I hope that all of you have a wonderful day too!
