Wishing YOU a happy, happy day!

Birthdays come quite frequently around here!  For once I am thinking ahead!  This Easel card will be for our Granddaughter Gena.  She is turning 3 on 8/8!  Two of our oldest daughter’s children have birthdays where the month and the day are the same number…SO much easier to remember! lol

This is my DT card for Sweet Stop Sketches Challenge Blog this week.  Another awesome sketch by Korin. Hope you can join us this week!

Finally broke down and purchased some of the new images from Penny Black…they were “calling my name” as I’ve heard it expressed! lol  This little gal’s name is Mimi and I  ♥ her!  The name of the stamp is Sweet Thing, 4084 H is the stamp code.  I used the Fantasy tree, 3880 K to stamp the random dots around her on the scallop oval.  Lace Frost stickles dabbed around on the dots and here and there on the cupcake…gemstones on the corners of the sentiment rectangle.  The sentiment is happy, happy, 00106 E.  The pattern papers are from Making Memories, the  flower border punch is from Martha Stewart and the open scallop border is from EK Success.  Mimi is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, paper pieced and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Also linking to the Penny Black Allsorts challenge Blog.

Gena will love her!

I had this stamp in my hand last week and put it back, they’ve been calling to me ever since :D, no doubt I’ll have to give in too at some point.

  6. Oh Pam your grandaughter will love this card !!! It’s just sooooo sweet. I didn’t even know Stickles made frost stickles. Are they thicker than the regular stickles & if so it really looks great on your card. I’m seriously going to have to get some of those cute little images. Love them on your cards …
