Splish Splash Birthday Wishes

Here is my entry for this week’s CAS-UAL FRIDAYS CHALLENGE featuring a creature found in the ocean… well sort of – a fishing lure!

 

I created this fun little card for my Step-Father’s Birthday today! Happy Birthday Mike!

Super simple hand cut “waves” with patterned papers and of course the stamps & die cuts from WPlus9’s Fish More set just make this little ocean number POP! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend – Back to School tomorrow and back to the grind!!

WPlus9 Group Release Day

Yes it’s finally here! You can now purchase all of the latest stamps at the WPlus9 Design Store.

Today is the group post and it’s always my favorite day. I always try to save my best card for last. And this one is simple but I just LOVE the colors!

I used some left over scraps & die cut pieces to create that darling flower from Quilt Cuts 1 Die. And then stamped that super fun sentiment from Happy Harvest. Make sure to stop by Dawn’s Blog where she’s showcasing all of the DT’s projects.

And of course stop by and leave some love:
