Birthday Basics Candles

I can't believe that in less than a month my kiddos will be back in school!   Shhhh...don't tell anyone, but I'm a little excited!  The days when all 5 of my day home kids are here combined with my own 3 kids it gets a little crazy and exhausting around here!!!!  I also thrive on routine and although I love the first few weeks of lazy summer days when we just do whatever, I start longing for the routine of school days by August.

Anyhoo...I'm sure you stopped in today to see some stampin, so lets get on with it, right!  I'm sharing my second swap card from convention with you today.  I always do 2 different swap cards at SU events for a couple reasons.  First, I get bored doing lots of the same card and second, lots of times it's nice to be able to swap 2 for 2 with someone if they have 2 fabulous cards!

My card was super simple, but super fun!  And, I actually had 2 versions of it...but I totally forgot to take a picture of the other version.  It had the birthday hat paper on it and was done with Island Indigo rather than Raspberry Ripple.

You can see I did a layer of the DSP matted with cardstock and then embellished with some fun little banners.  The stamped banner is popped up with some Stampin' Dimensionals.  To get two colors on one image, I used my Stampin' Write Markers rather than an ink pad.

This card is super simple and doesn't require a whole lot of supplies.  Head on over to my online store with the shopping list to order the supplies you need to create this card today!  If you use the hostess code 9S2F9VJ2 and place your order before August 30, you will be entered in a draw for an embossing folder of your choice!

Have an inspired day!
