Smiley from

America has no idea that we were planning this as she is currently travelling across the US relocating to a new home :-) !

This challenge is being sponsored by our lovely generous teamie Sue Drees :-) !! She will be giving one lucky entrant this gorgeous stamp ! :-) thanks Sue xx

for a chance to win this lovely stamp just make a Happy Birthday card or creation and enter the challenge !! easy !! :)

 Wishin' Well

As America's birthday is on the 4th July ,,, I thought I would be dead original and go for a stars and stripes theme !! ( tongue firmly in cheek here lol )

I used my cute little Hyper Mouse Muzzy for this card. The ball is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives beach set :-) The papers were a free download from Freebies-stampTV Lucky find !! :-)The star was cut out on my cricut using the george cartridge. I used a martha Stewart border punch and I embossed a panel of white with the swiss dots folder, the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set too ,, I used a Spellbinders ribbon tag die too.


Stamp Something ,,,,, Colours of my flag (Union Jack)

Meljen ,,,,, Red/White/Blue

Cupcake Crafts ,,,,,World Cup Wonders

Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some FANTASTIC cards for you to see so hop on over to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge to see them :-)
