Lilo's Fun Friday #21 - A Birthday wish

Happy Aloha Friday!

Thank you everyone for helping us celebrate Kris' birthday yesterday.  I hope you all enjoyed the hop and if you haven't done it yet, please head on over HERE to start at the beginning.

Today for Lilo's Fun Friday I am sharing a card I made for a special friend who is celebrating her birthday today.  Who is it?  Mimi Lee Pang!  She also happens to be my Lollipop DT sistah.  Mimi is a sweetheart, always sending me lovely RAKS for our swaps and leaving me wonderful inspirational messages.  She's also got mad talent when it comes to crafting.
Happy Birthday Mimi!  I hope you have a terrific birthday with lots of cake, ice-cream and presents galore!  Many blessings and good fortune to you!
A few of the Lollipop gals are sharing their own cards on each of their blogs and also on the Lollipop Crafts challenge blog today.  Please pop on over to check out their amazing creations for Mimi and then head on over to each gals blog and leave them some love.  Here are their direct links:

I don't know if many of you know that Mimi is also on the challenge team at All That Scraps.  She does an amazing job with those cute images and I thought it would be fun to create a card using one of the newest C.C. Design Pixies and a background stamp from Sweet November

Here's another wonky reverse card.  I now know why Donna uses this Spellbinder set a lot.  It's really cool to work with.  I used Swiss Pixie Woodland Lucy and the giant mushroom from the SN mushroom stamp set.  (All of these items can be found at All That Scraps.)  I created a fun outdoor scene with Lucy sitting on top of the mushroom.  I used some pretty spring-like colors.  I paper-pieced the mushroom and used Copics to color and shade in some parts.  Lucy is also colored with Copics and I finally think I got the hair to my liking.  Needs more practice (which I don't mind doing) but I'm stoked with how it turned out this time.  Had to make my own paper grass, buying a grass border punch is definitely on my list for my next trip to Michael's.  After that the rest of the card came together pretty quickly.  I hand wrote the sentiment and on the inside of the card I used the Happy Birthday circle stamp from C.C. Designs.

Just in case you can't see it, I stickled parts of the mushroom and the barrett in her hair.

Well I haven't sent it off to Mimi yet, cause I'm getting some other goodies to send with it.  So sorry Mimi girl you'll have to wait for the rest of it.  But at least you can enjoy the card for now.  :)  Alrighty, got lots going on this weekend, crafting for another show and visits from the siblings.  Should be a jam-packed weekend.  Hoping I get to sneak in some sleep somewhere.  lol.  Have a great Friday everyone!

Mahalo for stopping by!
