Happy Birthday Cheers

Is it really February already?  It's been awhile since I posted, and actually it's been awhile since I've stamped!  It was a sad week last week, as we said goodbye to one of our kitties - Tabbytha.  She was a good kitty, and we will miss her.  On a brighter note though, my stamping buddy came up for a visit this last weekend, and we had lots of stamping fun!  So, I thought I'd share some of the cards we made with you all this week.  Here is one we'll be making at my card club this Saturday:

I recieved a birthday card using this image from an SCS friend last year, and fell in love with this little cheerleader turtle!  So, next time I ordered from Stamping Bella, this stamp was the first on my list. 

The paper is from the SU Sweet Pea paper stack.  I colored the turtle with SU old olive ink and a blender pen, added red rose using the SU marker... and of course had to add some bling with stickles!  A nestie classic scallop circle cut out of Taken with Teal and SU Saffron ribbon finished it off.  I think we'll have fun making this one on Saturday!

I'll be back with more cards to show you later this week... so stay tuned! 
Happy Stamping!

Great card! I love the bling on the pom poms! I am going to have to add this stamp to my wish list.

I'm also sorry to hear about your kitty. It is hard to lose a pet. :(
