Happy Saturday Everyone!!! Another Birthday party behind us - LOL! I love 'em! It's fabulous to see friends and kids having the best time.
Apparently, a major winter storm is heading our way - we are in Atlanta area - so the stores are out of bread, milk and eggs - it tickles me because everything shuts down (stores, schools, even my dr. hubby doesn't go to work) when there is snow here in "the South". So I wonder what will happen in the next few days - a lot of people seem to be "freaking out". We haven't been living her for that long, so I can't picture this.
Anywhoo, today's card was made for sweet now 5 year old Kara. Her Gymnastics Birthday Party was sooooo much fun! And since she is THE ULTIMATE girly girl - what else to use than pink, white & red (from the Color Create Challenge) with hearts and sparkle. I used this week's Friday Sketcher's Sketch + Just Magnolia's Challenge (Anything Goes), teamed up with Simon Says Stamp Challenge - New Beginnings - I think new year as a 5 year old counts - right? - and Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Out with the Old - I used my last year's Valentine's Day papers along with my I-don't-even-know-how-old DCWV papers. The sweet Love Ladybug Tilda is colored with my ProMarkers, Copics Sketch & Ciao and spakled up with Stickles (Star Dust). The cute Heart Rhinestones are from Michaels and the gorgeous Heart Border is brand new punch from Martha Stewart - oh, yum! The lacy ribbon is by American Crafts - my new fave!
As you can see I still have to work on my coloring - the bleeding of my markers is just so hard to control. I am using Neenah Super Smooth paper, but I still have this happening - hmmmm .... need to work on the blending technique a little more. I also did a little bit of paper piercing. So fun! The Birthday stamp is by Inkadinkado and I just love it - I use it almost on all of my Birthday cards.
Q: Did you know you can use your 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby to get your Copics? I just got mine ☺
Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
