A birthday card

Hi all. I'm back from vacationing. We took a couple weeks and drove home to Illinois/Wisconsin. We celebrated my Dad's 80th birthday by throwing him a surprise birthday party; we spent a week up in the north-woods of WI to visit with my in-laws fishing, canoeing, pontooning the lakes and just having a great time. Then back down to IL to stay with my parents, helping them out as my Mom is recuperating from surgery to her wrist. We also hung out with family and friends throughout the week. Busy busy busy!!!

I didn't take ANY scrap-booking/card making supplies with me, and as much as I desperately miss my family, I was also excited to get back to my craft cave to start creating again!

This card I made for the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.

This was a color challenge and here are the colors:

I used stamps from the Green Acres and Good Gab sets for this card. No patterned paper, all card stock. I embossed the chick and eggs (I cut one of them to look like the chick just hatched from it) and fussy cut them out of card stock. I used a corner rounder from Fiskars on two corners. Stamped the sentiment, used a light purple marker from Marvy Uchida to draw shadows, and popped the panel to the card base with foam squares. Easy peasy! I'm getting more into CAS cards. This one came together within an hour! (normally it's like 2-3!)

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment. I read them all, and they are much appreciated! Have a great evening!
