MFTWSC278 - 24XHappy Birthday


Isn't this fun? I was looking around for a challenge to play with this morning and came across the current MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge:



I reduced it to one layer and used a rainbow of happy colours to add to the fun!

I'm also linking up to Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes




Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

I used:
-MFT Label Maker Sentiments
-MFT You Move Me (stars) (Retired)
-MFT Party Balloons (Retired)
-Ranger Dye Inks
-Versafine Onyx


On another topic, are you on Instagram? I joined about a year ago and after getting used to it have come to love it and view it as my main method of keeping in touch with many of the cardmakers I love! But I know that there are a few of you still not there and I miss you! (follow me by clicking the link to the right).

It's simple to use - you don't even have to put your own photos up - you can leave your account 'private' and just follow all your favourite people.

Your feed is just photos. No political nonsense or controversial opinions. No clicking from blog to blog. Just photo after photo after beautiful photo.  I have the app on my computer and I usually look at my feed there because I find it easier to type on a full keyboard (rather than on my phone).

It's so easy - either click the heart or double-click on the photo to like it. Leave a comment if you wish. Scroll to the next photo. SO. EASY. (have I mentioned that?)

If you do upload photos, you need to use your phone. You can hashtag information about your photo (what challenge it's for ie #mftwsc, #seizethebirthday what products you're using  ie #mftstamps) - these hashtags make it easy for people to search for your work.

It is definitely my favourite way to see what's being created out there - it's quick, efficient and easy! Give it a try!

I am admiring your solid stamp inking perfection. Misti... yes or no? Perhaps it's a combination of your skill and the Ranger dye inks... Anyhow, love the bright and fun card!
