Hear Me Roar

August birthdays have kept me busy!  Besides my own, I can count at least a dozen others that will mean co-workers, friends, or family members waiting for hand-made cards to be delivered to them!  Do you have any birthdays to create for this month?  If so, or if you're a Wizard of Oz fan, then you might want to head over to Sassy Studio Designs Paper Craft Planet group to download this week's Fabulous Freebie Friday image!  Since it's all about birthdays this fortnight, I thought it would be fun to use the Cowardly Lion Honey image as a representation of the Leo zodiac sign. I am proud to be a Leo, and had a lot of fun making this card for a fellow Leo and crafty friend!  I hope she likes it (though unfortunately she'll see it online before it arrives in her mailbox).

My layout is courtesy of The Sketchy Challenges (#29).  I haven't played along over there in a while so I went to check it out and absolutely loved this lusciously layered sketch!  Papers are My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose - Mabel.  Other details include a Martha Stewart border punch, Stampin' Up tag punches, pearls, flowers, satin ribbon, seam binding. and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The image is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up on foam squares.  I've been getting a little crazy with the fussy cutting lately!  I may need an intervention!  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Who's That Birthday Girl stamp set.

Cowardly Lion Honey will be available for 24 hours starting at 8am EDT.  Please head over to the SSD Paper Craft Planet group to download her and to see what the amazing Fabettes have created for the current birthday challenge using the image.  We hope you'll be inspired enough to play along!

Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for the Sassy Studio Designs It's A Small World Part Two new release!  My card & post are ready to go and you're going to love the six new international beauties joining the collection!  The blog hop and festivities begin at 12:01am PDT on August 11th.

I am off to work shortly, but I'm already looking forward to the weekend - especially dinner tonight at my favorite restaurant with my best friend!  I hope you have something fantastic planned, or maybe nothing at all if that is what makes you happy, and enjoy!
