Hi folks.  I finished a fun card today, but first the story behind it.

I saw a card made by Sharon White on the Stampendous facebook page and
was so intrigued by the beautiful card she made with a fun and delightful
digi.  I visited her blog to get the details of where to find the digi .
Then I went to the site of the digi and purchased it.

The inside 

Stamp - Impression Obsession - Layered Pansies
Inside Sentiment - OLD from my stash
Paper - Lawn Fawn - Perfectly Plaid
Peach and white card stock
And of course of delightful digi

I did my card a little differently that Sharon did.
I printed out the digi on white cardstock and cut out
the copic markers and colored  them up.
After coloring the flower stamp, I cut it out and made
a frame for it.  I then adhered the markers from
the digi around the frame arranging them just as they were in the
printout.  I added some shadows on the image by the

I'd like to thank Sharon for sharing her card and the site where
you can buy the digi.

Thanks for stopping by today for a peek.  Have a good day, Until later....

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Ahh...Summer!  Finally the sun was out for more than a minute!
Along with the flowers, the rain has brought the weeds and
we have been in the yard trying to get them under control this week!

Our pond is up and running, but the fish have taken to the bottom
for the time being as we had  2 visits from a Heron, but we were in
the yard and he didn't land.  But who knows if he came back when
we weren't out there.  Nature at it's scariest.  If you have never seen
one of these birds up close, it is amazing how big they are.

This weeks card is all about CAKE.  Do you have a lot of summer
birthdays?  There are a few great stamps about the CAKE out right
now and they are fun.  Here is one of them.......

A simple card, but the message is Grand!
Stamp - Stampendous-Without Cake (CRW208)
Paper - Pink and white Card Stock
Die - Wonky Lines - Gina Marie
Gingham Ribbon
Colored with Copics

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.  Until later....
