Happy Birthday to you...

Hello again!

Today is my first solo post over on the 7 Kids blog and in honor of Kelly, the wonderful owner of the shop, recently bringing in The Greeting Farm stamps I wanted to ink up one of these cuties that I'm such a fan of. There are a lot of great stamps to choose from but when I saw Birthday Ian I knew he was the one for this card. Not only does he make for a super fun birthday card but I also get to finally check him off my 'get them inked' TGF list which is totally satisfying, LOL! I wanted to keep the card fairly simple but also have a sense of energy and excitement about it so I masked off Birthday Ian and used several different color inks with splatter style stamps like these ones from Altenew that were just added to the store. I love how it looks and the card actually came together fairly quickly which is always a plus. :)

Thanks for stopping by everybody!
