Have a sweet day Kathy!


Hope you're all having a great Sunday.  It's another hot day in LA so I think I'll stay in and play with some stamps and paper.  Hope you're doing something fun as well.

Here's a card I made for Kathy who celebrated her birthday last week.  (Yay to September babies!)

The main image I used is Dollie with Cupcake and the cupcake from The Greeting Farm which is part of the Dollie with Cupcake set.  I had thought to just do a simple plain white background, but as I started to stamp the cupcakes I just kept going.  I used small hearts & some blueprint dies from MFT, ribbon/twine from my stash and that sweet sentiment from AmyR.  The colors are some of Kathy's favorites, mine too, so I was really please with how it turned out.

In this shot you can see that I sprayed on some shimmer mist, makes the image and paper shimmer in light.  I also used my Wink of Stella pen on a few of the cupcakes for even more glittery fun which you can see better IRL.

I stamped something on the inside, it's always fun to add something fun to the inside too.

Can't say too much more about this card so I'll sign off for now.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thank you so much for stopping by!

Cupcakes galore! Bet Kathy was thrilled receiving your darn sweet birthday card. Perfect DP to go with the sweet image. We're having LOTS of rain which is NICE. Weather's been a lot cooler recently too. Hope it cools off in L.A. too. I'll blow some trade winds your way. :-) Have a great week.
