Happy Happy Birthday - 3GJ dt

Today is my turn to post for the 3 Girl JAM design team and I have a card to share with you.  I made this card for my middle daughter who recently celebrated her 17th birthday - she is a senior this year, WOW!!! Where has the time gone?!


My card is a Lori Whitlock file from the silhouette online store id #59934. My sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  I love the fun, bright colors of these My Mind's Eye "Hip-Hooray" papers.  The sunflower ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM "Harvest Bundle" goes perfectly with the colors in the design papers.  The Harvest Bundle is perfect for this time of the year as it goes well with both fall and Halloween projects.  Don't forget to use code NE10 to receive a 10% discount off of your 3 Girl JAM order!!  My card fits perfectly with the theme of this month's 3 Girl JAM challenge - Birthday - so you can bet I will be linking it up for that!!

Just a Note - 3GJ dt post

Today is my turn to post on the 3 Girl JAM blog and I have a back to school card to share with you.  I used a file from the silhouette store for my card and then embellished it with some of the fun 3 Girl JAM yellow tie dyed ribbon (love this stuff!!).  I used my 3 Girl JAM bow maker to make a double bow and then glued a button from my stash on top.  My card fits in perfectly with this month's challenge - "back to school or something with a writing instrument" - so you can be sure I will be linking my card to the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog.

"Have a Happy You Day!!" - 3GJ dt

Hello fellow paper crafters and thanks for stopping by today!!  I have a card to share with you for my dt post over at 3 Girl JAM.   I have been slowly growing my collection of alcohol markers and decided to keep working on my coloring skills - alas it will be a long journey to feel like I am getting anywhere close to the great skills I see out in blogland :-)  I love the color purple and used a few delicious 3 Girl JAM purple products to compliment my image.


My rosette is made with 3GJ "Iris" crinkle ribbon from the Spring Flowers bundle.  I used hot glue and cut a circle out of paper and just pleated the flower around the edges of the circle to create the rosette.  I finished it with a button and some twine from my stash.  Also on my card is some lovely 3GJ "lovely lilac" flower die cut ribbon from the 3GJ flower bundle.  

Thanks for stopping by today!!  Don't forget that you can receive 10% off your 3 Girl JAM order by using code NE10.
