Happy Blooming Birthday

Hello friends - so nice of you to stop by to visit me today!
Here in Montana we are in the heat of summer - it was a toasty 92 degrees today.
We celebrated my sweet niece's 21st birthday in the park. 
Thank goodness for a light breeze now and then - or I just might have melted.

Here's the card I made for her:
Digital image by Lacy Sunshine Flowerpot Pretty "Sunny"

I had colored this darling image a while back but didn't get a chance to 
finish a card until now. Thank goodness the image was already 
completed as it took me a very long time to get the rest of the card together
thanks to only having one thumb to use.  My Big Shot, dies and punches are my 
best friends right now as I can't use scissors with my left hand. But..I have figured out 
how to use my Stamp-ma-Jig to help keep my left hand steady when I stamp.
I have found myself to be very resourceful these past couple of weeks.
You just can't keep an addicted stamper down - he he.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Come and Get It Challenges - It's all about Dies (use at least one - I used 2)
The Corrosive Challenge Blog Challenge #205 Birthdays
Digi Galore - Anything Goes (must use a digital image)
Divas By Design - Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks - Challenge #205 Anything Goes
Lacy Sunshine Challenge #39 Summer
Inky Impressions Challenges IIC#170 - Anything Goes

That's all for me today.  Need to finish laundry so I have clothes for work next week.
Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
