Birthday Wishes

It is so nice to see the sun shining for once!  Woohoo.  It's a blazing 56 degrees out and we are grillin out today.  Can't wait.  So here's a quick post before I'm off to the grill.............

Today I'm sharing a Sparkle Creations stamp called "Cupcake Ruby" found here.  I only have two Sparkle stamps but I sure love the ones I do have.  This is my very first time playing over there so I'm kinda excited.  This stamp is perfect for all those birthday cards you need!  I've used Graphics 45 papers and followed the sketch at Sparkle Creations.  I'm working on my coloring following the weekly challenges over at Make It Crafty too.  This week we are focusing on shading.  There is an excellent video on it you can check out here.  This was my first attemp, not great, but I'm gonna try again on the next one.  Have a fabulous week and hopefully I'll see you again tomorrow!
