Chevron Birthday

Hey everyone!   Yikes! It's been a while since my last post.  I'm afraid my mojo isn't quite up to par yet this year.  I want to create but when I'm trying to things aren't working out right.  I think it's starting to turn around now though.  I spent some time yesterday making some cards and I've got some to share over the next few days.  But first I should get some Blogger business out of the way.

Some of you may have already seen this on other blogs:

Effective January 11, 2016 only Google account holders will be able to follow blogs with Blogger. In addition, Blogger will also remove any followers without a Google account from the blogs they are following.

If you are reading my blog via Google Friend Connect you have the following options:
  • You can create a Google Account.  Then you would need to become a Follower again because all previous Followers who did not have an account will be permanently removed from my Follower lists by Google.
  • If you choose not to open a Google account, you can still follow my blog via email or bloglovin.
So, I hope you'll choose to keep following me by either getting a google account or email/bloglovin. :-)

Okay, back to cards!  Take a look...

So, for this card, I kept it pretty simple.  I stamped my chevron stamp (STAMPlorations) several times in Canary yellow Memento ink, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks.  I stamped my sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black and then attached my felt bow (got this from Michaels $1.50 bin a long time ago).  Loving those colours together.  :-)

Well, I hope you've enjoyed your visit today and will come back again soon!  Have a lovely day!

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:

TIME OUT Challenges - Happy Birthday with optional twist of sponging.
Fusion Card Challenge - I went with just the inspiration photo this time. I was inspired by that awesome chevron table runner and those bright colours and all that white.

CAS-ology - cue card is simple.  My card is clean and simple in style.
