Birthday Tags - 3GJ dt

Hello!!  Today is my day to post over on the 3 Girl JAM blog and I have a couple of tags to share that  I made using some 3 Girl JAM "Summer Sprinkles" crinkle ribbon from "The Seasons" bundle.  I think this is one of my favorite colors from 3 Girl JAM but, of course, I think I say that about every color, LOL!!  I never seem to have enough birthday related items on hand so I have been trying to make something birthday related each week.



My tag is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Layered Tags" cutting files.  My sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas "Simply Said" stamp set. My cupcake is from the Silhouette Store id#34751 and I created an offset for it.

Don't forget about our current challenge over at the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog.  The theme is "Halloween" and you could be the lucky winner of some 3GJ crinkle ribbon.

Today I have a birthday card to share with you for my design team project over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I never seem to have enough birthday cards on hand, do you?   I made this one for a good friend's birthday that was celebrated at the end of September.


I used Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Make a Wish" cutting files for the candles on my card.  My paper is from Doodlebug's 6x6 Sugar Shoppe pack.  The flowers are from Recollections and my sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva's "Say It Big" stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today!!  Don't forget to join PPPR's monthly challenge - this time around the theme is Halloween.  You can link up your projects by clicking on the picture below -

Thankful Thoughts of You

Hello fellow bloggers I am here today with a fall card to share with you for my day to post on the Craftin Desert Divas blog.  I used a sentiment from the Craftin Desert Divas "Hey Pumpkin" stamp set and it goes perfectly with my card.



I used a masking technique with scotch tape in order to get my sentiment to fit into the shape of this banner.  Such a great sentiment - perfect for any time of the year!!
                                                           Larger Image
My autumn tree is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Autumn Tree" cutting files.  The banner for my sentiment is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Sentiments Spots 3" cutting files.  My fall colored sequins are from the Royal Castle Shop.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
