Be Happy! Celebrate!

It has been a very rainy week....good for the gardens .......but a little depressing for someone who likes to go for a walk most evenings.

There are 2 birthdays coming up quickly in my family. We have 2 daughters that are turning 27 on Sunday, Crystal and Kimberley. This is the birthday card I made for Kim. She loves bright colors (orange and yellow being 2 of her favs). She is such a "Sweetie" and as bright and cheerful as this card.

Stamps - SU Like it a Latte, It's Your Birthday, Very Puny, Fancy flexible phrases, Amazing to Zany. Stampendous Bee Daisy.

Inks - SU classic black, close to cocoa, creamy caramel. Heart is chalk ink rouge.

Paper - DCWV textured and pocket full of posies. Making memories, SU whisper white, choc chip.

Accents - Flowers, rhinestone, glitter, stickles, ribbon, brad, embossing. Coluzzle was used for all the scallops.

The images are colored with Prismacolor pencils and oderless mineral spirits.

Now I have to get busy working on the another birthday card.

I am not sure my feed is working if you aren't receiving the updates..please let me know.

Thanks for looking!
