Red, White and Blue…

and Happy First Birthday Corrin!!!

Finally using one of my new Penny Black stamps!  YEA!  I bought it HERE…it’s one of the new slapstick/cling stamps…slap it on an acrylic block! lol  We have a grandson that was just a week old Thursday and then this card is for a grandson that will be one year old Wednesday.  They grow up so fast!

I’m linking to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog…so excited to play in their challenge at last!  I’m going to try to keep up better and use more of my Penny Black stamps.  It’s so easy to just collect them! lol  I know I’m not the only one with this problem!!!  I see you smiling out there! lol  I’m full of good intentions! ha! The challenge from Penny Black @ Allsorts Blog is ” A Burst of Summer Color”. I’m using the sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog, at Stamp Something Blog the challenge is to use the colors of your country’s flag,  the challenge at No Time to Stamp is to use stars and Stamp With Fun Challenge Blog theme is Birthday!  Thanks for the great challenges gals!

Stamped Fly Away with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Sketch markers. R05, 08, 59 (colored over w/W1, 3, 5), B91 – 99 (colored over w/W1, 3, 5), E43, 44, 47 and B99 for his slacks, E53, 55, 57, 59 for his shoes, N1 – 7 for the airplane, E33 – 37 for the dog. Skin E000, 00, 11, R30.   The pattern papers are Doodlebug (ancient stuff, probably six years old – hey,  I’m testing them to see if they are really archival!  hahahahaha).  Marvy Uchida primitive star punches,  the number “1” is an EK Success papershaper punch,  “Birthday” A2657, is a Printworks stamp that you can purchase HERE, the Checker border is a Martha Stewart border punch HERE and the card-stocks are, white Papertrey Ink, red is Bazzill and the navy is Stampin Up.

Just looking at this again…I’m in a rut…I reach for the B90’s w/out thinking… I should have used other blues to match this pattern paper better….maybe next time! lol  I do have other blues after-all!

Hope he makes you smile!
