Another February Play Day Project!

Yes, I am back again, only two days from the last post!  And I have another Play Day project to share!

Since February is my birthday month, I like to make birthday cards for Play Day projects.  We all need lots of birthday cards!  For this project, I started with Sweet Sunday Sketch, No. 202.  My creative process seems to work best when I find a sketch and then work with colors and stamps.  A second view of this project:

I'm Back and a February Play Day Project!

I have been away for a long time, MIA.  We have been working on our house, which distracted me a lot!  At present, my craft room is completely empty and my DH tore out the ugly old carpet today!  So paint and a new floor are coming very, very soon!  And I can't wait to get my tools and toys back to their proper place!

Anyway, I have several projects to share, so I will share one with you right now!  This was one of our projects at February Play Day:

This project uses several of our Sale-a-bration products.  It is also a CASE of a project created by Windy Ellard (, post dated January 10, 2014).  My recipe is:

STAMPS:  Petal Parade (SAB product)

     Sahara Sand:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4
     Pistachio Pudding:  4 x 5-1/4
     Cantaloupe Crisp:  3-7/8 x 5-1/8
     Coastal Cabana:  2-1/8 x 3-7/8
     Sweet Sorbet DSP:   2 x 3-7/8
     Scraps:  Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White
