Wishing You, Like, Happy Birthday

It’s me again!
Gallery Idol 2013 Graphic
How’s your holiday weekend going?  I’ve been trying to get some crafting done before I have to pack up my crafting supplies to transition from our AZ house to our WA house.  We’ll get on the road on Tuesday, so today is packing day!  But before I go, I wanted to create one more project for the Paper Crafts Magazine Gallery Idol contest.

Converse Birthday

I would LOVE to have a pair of Chuck’s with a turquoise chevron pattern, wouldn’t you?!  I mean, how fun would these be in real life?!  I downloaded a sneaker cutting file from the Silhouette online store and went to town jazzing it up a bit.  The sentiment is from a super fun stamp set from My Stamp Box called Whatever.  That word “whatever” was heard around my house OFTEN when my girls were teenagers.  So I thought this sentiment was perfect for this card.  I’ll list the other products I used below my signature.

Well, the audition deadline for the Gallery Idol contest is up tonight.  Still crossing my fingers that I make the Top 20, but even if I don’t, I had a lot of fun playing along!

I’m off to start packing!  Thanks so much for stopping by again today!  I appreciate it more than you know.  Have a great week – I’ll be back on Thursday with the next CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!

STAMPS:  Whatever (My Stamp Box)
INK:  VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  White OP CS and Bazzill Yellow (Bazzill Basics Paper), Turquoise Chevron DP (Snap! Collection – Simple Stories)
OTHER:  Mustard Embossing Powder (American Crafts/Zing), Sew Mini Sewing Machine (Janome), Sneaker Cutting File (Silhouette Online Store – Design #23338), Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine (Silhouette America)
