Party Time Tuesday Color Challenge

Hello blog land! Today's the day I have been waiting forever for! We leave for Florida in about 12 more hours and I am so excited! The only hard part is what to pack! Even the boys, Simba and Baily have their own suitcase and they know when it comes out they are going on a road trip!

I want to tell you about my surprise yesterday from a very dear friend, Lisa Haines, The Purple Place,  She sent me a gift certificate from SCACD  for Christmas!!  Her words in the email  had me in tears for they were so beautiful and from her heart! She knows I love to shop at SCACD and I can't wait until we get home to place my order! Thank you from my  heart Lisa...you are a very true friend and I have enjoyed our friendship this passed year. Don't you find it amazing you can become close to a person you never met online. Lisa and I have spoken many times via phone and this spring I am going up to Maine to meet her! It will be an awesome trip!

It's Party Time Tuesday which means a birthday challenge blog! Each week you make a card with birthday wording on the front of the card, along with the challenge of the week! Easy Peasy and it keeps those birthday cards in stock! This weeks challenge is red, white and green!

My image is a digital from  Karen Doodles under the mens cards.  Karen has oodles of super cute images and I have used quite a few of them in the past. Right now until Dec. 26 she is having a 25 Percent off sale on everything in the store including her rubber stamps. Use the code KDAN324. Stop by you will love her cute and adorable images!

I made this birthday card for my SIL b/c he so loves fishing. He loves fishing so much my youngest grandchild middle name is "Fisher" Yep, you read that right! Andrew Fisher Marburger. It's an odd way to name a child, but I really do like it!  In addition they have Abbie, my granddaughter. Abbie and Andrew love to go fishing and one day the largest fish caught was by Abbie!! So I thought this image was perfect!


In order to be eligible for Party Time Tuesday's Top 3 and monthly random prize drawing you need to upload your BIRTHDAY card (sentiment on the front) based on the colors red, white and green via inlinkz on PTT.
TIP OF THE DAY:   I have been asked several times how do I do my skies. Easy peasy with chalk. I rub a Q-tip with chalk and color the sky. Takes one minute!

Have a wonderful Holiday Season and don't forget to leave some love for my DT!! Thank you for stopping by!

AWESOME card! THanks for the sky coloring tip. I always have my chalks nearby and that would so much easier than trying to blend Copics.
