Hi everyone! Here is another swap card I made, but this time this swap card was made for my swap. I am currently hosting a CAS clean & simple birthday card swap.  The cards were due to me yesterday so I'm almost finished hosting that swap and I've since started a Christmas in July CAS clean & simple card swap.  If anyone might be interested in joining that swap feel free to send me an eamil and I will give you the details on how to sign up.

I decided to keep my CAS birthday card a bit more CAS then I usually do.  This card literally only took me a few minutes to create and I love the results.  I used a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set call Dream a Little.  This is the first time that I used this stamp set so I wanted to give it a try.

I stamped the flower images onto my white card stock and then I colored them using my Stampin' Up! markers.  Next, I stamped my birthday sentiment in the upper left corner, I added one rhinestone jewel for the dot of the letter i in the word birthday, and then I punched my corners using my ticket corner punch.

I almost always add ribbon on my cards and so this card was no exception.  For my ribbon treatment, I decided to add two small tabs on the right side. 

I hope you like my card and thank you for taking the time to stop by.  Remember, I'm offering Stampin' Up! blog candy once I reach my goal of 200 followers, so please spread the word!

Before I sign off for today, I have some not so good news to share with all my blog friends.  My family and I lost our cocker spaniel, Pebbles last night.  She was just two months shy of her 15th birthday.  I took this picture of her about two weeks ago. 

She was such a wonderful dog and we miss her already, *sniff sniff* but my family and I know she is at peace now and no longer suffering since she was diagnosed with kidney disease just two months ago.  I have already received several messages from some of you and I wanted to say thank you for your thoughts and prayers for my family and me.
