Happy Birthday!


Here's two cards that I created this morning, my first card is for a member in my family that will be having her birthday within a week..  As a matter of fact November is one hectic month in our family lots of birthdays coming up... So you might see replicas of the same image but created differently....
What I try to do when I know that I'm going to be working on a particular stamp I will ink up the images all at once and then I'll put them in a file "To Do", then in between of other projects I'll break and pull out my folder and work on coloring up my images..... For me, it saves up a bunch of time I don't have to take them out of their packages and I'll just ink up at least 2 sheets of each and I always have them in my file... It works up perfectly for me!!!
Anywho back to my birthday card, I used TGF (Cheeky Cherry Pie) she was inked up with copic sketch markers, stickles, glossy accents, spellbinders ovals, scallops and banners sentiment from Hero Arts, pop up dots.

Entering this card in the following challenges:
Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #33 Birthday Card
Lollipop Crafts - Challenge #55 - Anything Goes
Pollycraft Monday - Challenge #117 - Anything Goes (Marit)

Doesn't that pie - looks delish!!!!!
My next card is from C.C.Designs - Honey (Teacher) this was a last minute thing I decided to do got inspired by a dear blogger friend in entering a paper piece challenge... So this is what I came up with, she was paper pieced with scraps from stash, colored with copic sketch markers, papers from stash, sentiment from Hero Arts and added a ribbon.
I'm entering her in this challenge:
Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge- Challenge #99 Paper Piecing

Have a great day/evening...
Hugs to all of you~

  26. As usual you made some fabulous cards. I especially like the one with the girl holding the pie and how you put glossy accents on the pie. It makes it look very realistic. BTW, did you receive the e-mail that I sent to you regarding your "anything goes" swap.

  27. So pretty! I especially love the adorable Cheeky Cherry Pie card and how you've carried out the 50's theme and your card...what a perfect background paper...looks like this little waitress stepped right out of a diner with her yummy pie!
