Yay! It's Your Birthday!

Happy Monday! I really expected to get this posted earlier but the garden jobs were calling me. I picked green beans and prepped them for dinner. I picked basil and made two batches of pesto. And then picked the tomatoes and peppers. We had so much rain early in the summer and now it's very dry. My zucchini are about the only thing that's going to keep producing I think. Most everything looks like it's declining quickly. Sunny and warm today. I haven't gotten in much exercise today so I probably should take a walk this evening. I got a package in the mail from Simon Says but told myself I couldn't open it until I had most of my jobs crossed off my list. I have this post and one other thing to do. So without further ado, here's my card:


Yesterday, I said I had another card using the WPLUS9 Unforgettable stamp set. Here it is! I used all three of the elephants in the set. Aren't they just adorable? I can't get enough of this stamp set. I stamped a couple of the other smaller stamps; the flower and the grass. I don't often use gray on my cards but I love gray and pink together so that's what I chose to use. The balloon is also from the set and I filled the balloon with Glossy Accents. The sentiment and banner die are from Simon Says. The flower is from the dollar bin at Michael's. I used the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch. I really liked the layout of the sketch.

I am entering these challenges:

I am off to get my last job done so I can check out my goodies from Simon Says. I hope your Monday was wonderful. Make Tuesday even better. Thanks for stopping by.

I am loving the few Wplus9 stamps that I have (flora & fauna ones). I missed this one, and you're right...it's absolutely adorable. Of COURSE you had to use pink & gray. And it looks just perfect. Liking that sketch you followed, and the little ely-fants were darling with this sketch. Good for you on the discipline you've placed on yourself. Homemade pesto sounds delish...and so does zucchini bread! Don't work too hard. TFS & Hugs

Sweet card! I love how you stamped on gray and left the elephant just outlined and added the touch of color with the flowers! So pretty!!
