You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

A Sweet Birthday Box for BBTB2

Hello, again.  It's been a long time.  I haven't been blogging but I have been doing a lot of card making.  I decided it's time to enter some challenges again.  This card is being entered in BBTB2, Die Cuttin' Divas, and Paper Play Sketches.

Cartridges used were:
All Occasion Box Cards for the navy blue base, cut at 5 1/2 "; stars cut from sh-F4-9.
Create A Friend, cut at 2 1/2", and modified from the 'teacher' figure;
Sweet Treats, for the ice cream, cut at 3", the cake cut at 1 3/4" and the cake slices on the side flaps also cut at 1 3/4";
Straight from the Nest,  for the presents border (button 40, F4) which is used on the bottom, three sides.
The tiny sentiment, "for my sweet friend" is from a set of stamps called Tiny Tag Sentiments from Our Daily Bread.  The "sweet birthday wishes" sentiment was typed on the computer.

At Bitten by the Bug 2 the theme is "Sweet."
          At Die Cuttin' Divas the theme is a shaped card.
                    At Paper Play Sketches there is a color challenge: Navy Blue, White, and Brown.

Please, visit these sites to see what other entrants and design teams have done.

Putting together a post took a while because I am very rusty at doing it--but I succeeded.
Thank you for stopping by.
