Have you read those children's books? They are so cute! The first one I read to my grandchildren was llama, llama mad at mama. They're super cute books that you never tire of reading. Now, I promise, I didn't write a book but I did use the llama from Birthday Fiesta stamp set on today's card.
This card is heading to my cousin who is temporarily in AZ settling up some business while his family is back in NY state. He's almost exactly three months younger than I am and I hope he manages to have a happy birthday this year. I thought I'd make him a bright and cheerful card to spur on a good time in spite of being away from home. That llama is so cute with his toothy grin. Before I put it in the envelope I added two dots of white ink from a Uniball pen. It's easy to add lots of color with the all the cool stamp images and colorful Designer Series Paper in the coordinating Festive Birthday DSP. I used one of the streamer stamps to add some background color. Then more color was added with the sentiment by coloring it with Stampin' Write Markers. All that was stamped on a white label cut out with the largest die in Lots of Labels framelits. The llama was stamped on Smoky Slate card stock and of course, the llama die in Fiesta Time Framelits made it easy to trim out. Too bad I can't add a greeting like "llama llama party in Bahama"!
Inside I stamped a couple of cactus with the sentiment….
I truly hope my cousin has a great birthday and finds a fiesta to attend!
I hope you have a great Thursday! I'm planning to scratch some items off my "to do" list today! - Dawn
