Birthdays are for Spike!

This is Spike and he is just thrilled to be on this Birthday card today - can you see his big friendly smile?!?!?

I had a busy day Sunday - with church in the morning, then teaching a card stamping class there in the afternoon with two friends. We had 12 people signed up this month which is a full class so we were all excited! I finally got home around 3:30 and wanted to pack away my Christmas decorations (yes, they are STILL up!)

But I always like to do the Featured Stamper challenge over on Split Coast so first things first right?!?!? This week it was WeeBeeStampin. I cased her cute pumpkin Emma card. I made mine a birthday card - used Spike instead of sweet little Emma - changed the sentiment and added a ribbon and some dry embossing. I did use her overall card design.

I cut the sentiment using the Labels Eight Nestabilities and just cut it off above the words. I embossed the background with the Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug folder.

Be sure to check out the stamps over at Rubbernecker - they are all on sale "preinventory" right now!!

So now I have no excuse for not packing away the decorations - or is there another card I need to make ...............

Thanks so much for coming by!
