It's your Birthday!


Happy Friday to you all hope you had a great week. Are ya doing anything special this weekend...we are having my DGS 12th birthday party tomorrow not sure how many little guys will be attending but I am sure all his buddies will be ready to go. Then it is church on Sun and more crafting for me !!!! Ok I know what you are thinking she is not going to give this card to her DGS LOL !! No I am not DGS is getting a store bought card this year ! This card is actually for no special reason, I just got my new "wrapped presents #404" stamp from Diana @ Magnolia-licious and I wanted to use them. They are in stock now if you want to grab them. They are in the So Snowy, So Jolly collection. Tilda is Dinner Tilda and I don't see her there right now but I am sure if you contact Diana she can get her for you.

My images are colored with copics and I have to say I did try a new technique with the skin and hair. I used Sharon's tutorials over at Gramma's House of Cards be sure a drop by and just see all the talent she has. I added some little rhinestones for Tilda's jewelry bling. The presents have some stickles on them and I used my new Baby's Breath Shimmerz on the Happy Birthday scallop. I have to tell ya that I am not liking that pink ribbon on there at all but I got a new ATG tape gun and once it is on it stays LOL ! The DP is Imaginisce and just basic purple cardstock. Well that is it for me today. Thanks for coming by.
Hugs,

I have a weakness for redheads. Most of my dolls have red hair! I imagine my Tildas will also. This is a wonderful card. I love the colors you used, paper and Copics. It all works so well together, and while you say you don't like the pink ribbon, it does draw one's eye to the ribbon on the present. I don't mind it at all. Beautiful card! Thank you for sharing.

Aww..Charlene, it's so very cute. Tilda is adorable and the little embossed text is lovely. I love the way you put the strip of DP at the lower bottom which made the layout so pretty :o)

That is as cute as can be. I love the added necklace. I love my ATG gun, it sure makes things go together faster. But there is no room to change your mind on placement. I like the pink ribbon it brings out the heart on the present.
