{lift me up}

Amy Tsuruta is a talented stamper.   She is a talented scrapper.  She is a talented and prolific card maker!  If you haven't seen her cards, you must make it a point to visit her blog, Tsuruta Designs.  She loves to mix colors and patterns and does it oh so well. Her cards have this really happy vibe to them. She is also my "celebrity" lift this week.  :)

I went to her blog looking for a sketch I saw a few months back and had wanted to have a go at, but never did find it, mainly because I got distracted by all the eye candy!  It was a difficult decision, but I finally chose this beauty to lift!

Tag Card by Amy Tsuruta
I love this card's simple design.  The mix of colors and patterns is just fantastic!

Hip-Hooray, Happy Birthday by me

I cut out that little "hip-hooray" banner from the strip at the bottom of the pattern paper, it is the name of the Mind's Eye Paper that I used. 

I added an SRM birthday sticker to the cupcake.

I used 2 different colors of twine in the button and loved the result.

Thanks for all the inspiration, Amy! 

Happy Saturday, friends!  I hope happy finds each and every one of you today!
