Happy Birthday Mod Style

This card was made for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge # 107. Amber Ink is the sponsor this week and that is where I got all these fun digi's. I combined "Hostess with the Mostess" and "Mod Kitchen" to make the scene. 6 different images were used and about 10 of the same one to make the wallpaper in the background. I went a little crazy but it was so fun to create. I hope you can hop over to SSW, you have 5 hours left, lol. Sorry, I am usually a little more timely, but if you don't make this one they will have a new one tomorrow and they are always wonderful!! I hope you are having a fantastic Tuesday :)

CTO Pool Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the Celebrate the Occasion's “Pool Party Blog Hop.” If you arrived here from the wonderful Judy Ann's blog you are on the right track. If you are visiting and want to start at the beginning, which I highly recommend so you can enter in all the blog candy J then you will want to start at the Celebrate the Occasion blog. Onto the card/box set J

I decided to make a fun but simple gift set for summer vacation. There are a set of (6) 3x3 minis that fit into the cute little gift box. I made two of each card, that is why you only see the 3 with envelopes to go with them. I had some really great K&Company paper that had really great bright summer colors, so it worked perfectly. With the pop dotted stickers from American Crafts it added height, so if you did flatter ones you could get a lot more into the box or leave room for a small gift on top. The box is made from a 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 piece of card stock and of course the cards that fit into it are the 3 x 3, so with one piece of 12 x 12 card stock you can get 8 cards, yeahhhh!!! So simple and a great gift for anyone :)
