Happy Bright Birthday along with A Friday Mash Up!

I found this fabulous challenge at the Friday Mash Up #65....and I was definitely feeling punchy as well, 


so this was just too perfect and I had to join in the fun! I really tried to challenge myself as well, by using Bright colours, this is definitely out of my comfort zone and I'm still not to sure how I feel about my card ~ 
I began by looking in my stash of I ever have paper....almost embarrassing already!
So I looked in my discontinued files after looking at our old SU colour wheel. I knew I wanted to start with Gable Green as my main colour! and so the wheel said...Pixie Pink & Apricot Appeal...and I'm going to create using these colours....are you kidding!!! Out came my punches for the flowers, Beautiful Wings Embosslits and got to work ~ or should I say play ~ I really enjoy my time in my studio and it really has been lacking lately ~ it has been super hot and humid lately and even though we have a beautiful pool to enjoy, one can only repose by pool for so long before you begin to feel stir crazy! And so here is my super bright birthday card! It just SCREAMS Happy Birthday!

Here is a little peek at my girls gazing in their new catalogues at my open house a few weeks ago! After they tore themselves away from their catalogues, they all went in for a dip ~ we then shared a BBQ meal together ~ oh how I love my friends! We had so much fun!

I sure hope you enjoyed this quick visit chez moi (my place)...if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a line ~ I would love to hear from you ~ Have a wonderful evening and a very Happy 4th of July to all my American friends ~ blessings to you all!
