Loonie Stampers Challenge :: Happy Birthday Regan




Happy Friday! Today is really the BIG DAY! I'm super excited and can't wait to share my experiences and adventures of CHA's first Super Show event with you.

Today's card has a special inspiration sponsored by the Loonie Stampers Challenge ladies. I've been playing along with their challenges for quite a while now and it has been great! Those ladies are dedicated to stamping challenges and help me to keep my creative juices flowing each week. We are celebrating one of the Loonie's birthday today and it's for Regan! Happy Birthday, Regan! I bet you are surprised! So, if you want to start playing along, you can visit any of the Loonie's (linked below). Feel free to make a card for Regan too!


I rarely complete the inside of my cards, by for Regan I did! I shared a photograph with you too! As you can see from my stamping In Bloom and using the patterned paper (strip) there is almost NO difference! Just wanted to let you all know! However, the pattern is slightly smaller on the paper.

Enjoy your weekend and as usual I appreciate your visits, comments, and support!
