Happy Birthday!

We had company over the weekend. My daughter Trina came for the weekend. Kim who also lives out of town came for a day. It was a good visit.

Today I have a card I made for my Mother's 89th Birthday. The stamp I used is a High Hopes image.....I know she'll get a kick out of these happy clucky gals.

You can visit High Hopes Stamps here .

I also used the SC150 sketch challenge for this card.

Stamps - High Hopes and studio G for sentiment

Paper - always artichoke, whisper white, michaels, wild asparagus, sizzix stack

Ink - classic black, colorbos black pigment for sentiment, close to cocoa, creamy caramel

Accents - flowers, brad, eyelets, charm, cuttlebug background, stitching, cord, stardust pen and stickles.

I used prismacolor pencils (oms) and Twinkling h20's to deepen the shading.

If you have any questions feel free to ask. Have a Great Day!!

Thanks for looking and your Wonderful comments!!!

HI Ila! This card is so darn cute, I can't hardly stand it. So I went to High Hopes and bought a mess of stamps and don't you know, I didn't get this one. Thanks for sharing these wonderful stamps with me. I will have to go back for the three chicks at a later date. When you use the twinklers, do you just go over the prismacolors? Or do you go into empty space? It looks so wonderful I would like to give it a try. Do you have a tutorial that you have done? I am asking a lot of questions. Love your work! Have a great and blessed day.
