I am "fairy" excited (teehee) to announce that it is Anita Be Stampin Digi Release and Blog Hop day…woot woot! All of the new digi images are available NOW at the Anita Be Stampin Shoppe, and we are celebrating by having a blog hop filled with inspiration. Be sure to visit all of the stops on the blog hop today, because one lucky winner who comments on EVERY blog along the way will win the entire digi release. Gotta love that!

Check out my project using the brand new Anita Be Stampin Ariana digi image. This image makes my heart flutter. Isn't she just adorable!?! I used patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Gertie collection. I love, love, love this new paper line by MME.

ABS Challenge #15 - Colorful Cooper

Happy Tuesday, peeps! :) I hope you are having a fabulous week so far. Today is my little bro's birthday, and here is the fun little card that I made for him. I am pretty famous for not getting cards mailed on time, so of course this one will be arriving late. LOL Happy Birthday, Mikey!

The card is based on Anita Be Stampin Challenge #15, where this week Tracy has challenged us to make a creation based on the color combo above. I absolutely adore these colors together. When I saw the colors, I knew right away that I wanted to reach for my brand spankin' new My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy True Blue 6x6 paper pad.

While I was flipping through the paper pad, I was inspired by a certain paper that had a banner pattern on it. While the banner themed paper was fabulous, it didn't quite fit with my card. So I decided to give creating my own banner a try instead. I cut the triangle shapes from cardstock and then dry embossed them using my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I adhered the triangle shapes to a piece Brown Sugar Divine Twine, and what do you know...I had a cute little banner! ;)

Might I suggest that you now scoot on over to the Anita Be Stampin Challenge Blog to see all of creations made for this week's challenge by the other ABS DT members? ;) Yep, that definitely sounds like a great idea. LOL

Hope your day if filled with happiness!
