Hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far! I have to say that mine has been wonderful - it was my birthday yesterday and my husband made sure it was a special day. He took me for a little shopping spree to my favourite little local scrapbooking store (he says this is from our 1 year old and he's sticking to it), then we picked up one of my favourite meals for dinner and we finished the evening with big giant sundaes. Mine had brownies, vanilla ice cream, cherries and chocolate sauce - yum! I was so stuffed, I couldn't even finish it. I also received some really beautiful handmade cards from my Crafty Catz Teamies, which it is amazing any of them arrived on time given our current Canada Post strike.
Today I want to share a birthday card I made for one of my lovely Crafty Catz teamies, who just happens to share a birthday with me. I hope her day was every bit as wonderful as mine and I hope she liked her card!
Stamps: Magnolia - I think she is called Tilda with Balloon, Hot Off the Press - Labels and Frames and Stamp & Punch
Colouring - A mixture of Distress inks and watercolour pencils
Papers - My Mind's Eye - Lime Twist
Other - purple metallic card, Martha Stewart punch, Kaiser lace, self-adhesive pearls. The balloon has been paper pieced.
A close up of the beautiful Tilda:
Magnolia-licious - photo inspiration (I went with the purple and flowers in my paper)
Just Magnolia - anything goes with optional lace
and last, but not least, the brand new Magnolia Challenge:
