Happy Birthday Susan!


Hi everyone

It is time for another challenge over on the Alota Rubber Stamps Paper Craft Planet Group. This week the challenge is hosted by Susan Uncle. You have two weeks from today to participate in this challenge and you also have a chance of winning some wonderful stamps if you card is selected randomly from all the entries received.

Susan’s birthday is in June and her favorite color is blue which is why she is also called Blue Robot so her challenge for us this time round was to create a Birthday card that was blue. There were a couple of stamps I tossed up about using as they all would have suited Susan but in the end these cute bees won hehe. This stamp is called “Susan’s Birthday Celebration” …. another reason why I chose this image seeing it was named after her! I also know she loves the bees/bugs that Alota Rubber Stamps sell hehe!

The sentiment I used here is from the JustRite Stampers oval birthday set … I couldn’t resist using it and the sentiment so fits this Alota image.


Here is the inside of my card. I recently attended a stamping/scrapbooking show and managed to get some of the fun EK Success border punches … this candle one being one of them. So of course I just had to use it on my card, as I had already done the outside of the card before getting this punch I decided to use it on the inside instead. Lots more candles for Susan to blow out hehe!
