and Debbie H too! Today, January 9th, is my sister's birthday and my friend, Debbie is celebrating her birthday today too! I made a birthday card to post today for the occassion, especially since both of them are scappers.
To celebrate Connie's birthday, because she is my #1 fan and #1 critic (LOL!), I am going to be giving away some blog candy. See the bottom of this post for details.
Here is Molly from Molly Stamps holding her scissors again. I stamped a few a these and colored her skin and hair when I was on vacation. I leave her dress uncolored until I decide what paper to use. I can't believe I got a close match to this CTMH paper. The paper is one from the Perfect Day Level 2 pack. It has all the new CTMH colors. The copics I used for her dress are BG72 Ice Ocean, R24 Prawn and R27 Cadmium Red. I will remember these colors for the next time I want to use Perfect Day.
I used my own handwriting for the first part of the sentiment on the outside "Have a" and used the Let's Get Together stamp set for the inside sentiment. So the card reads, "Have a scraptacular birthday."
I have been trying to decorate the inside of my cards, so the inside isn't so boring. The flowers on the inside are from the Let's Get Together set also.
Here is the "mom cam", because my mother likes this view.
Paper - Perfect Day (CTMH), White Daisy cs (CTMH), Tulip cs and Cocoa cs (CTMH), White Solar Crest (Neenah)
Ink - Black (Memento)
Stamp set - Let's Get Together (Molly Stamps)
Accessories - pop dots, chocolate waxy flax (CTMH), 3/4" circle punch (EK Success), 1" circle punch (EK Success), polka dot ribbon (American Crafts), chocolate brads (CTMH), brown felt flowers (Greenhouse), copics, brown marker (CTMH)
The blog candy is going to be five of my cards plus envelopes and a little this and that. The cards and this and that is going to be a surprise in honor of my sister's birthday. To enter the drawing just leave me a comment on what is your paper craft new year's resolution. Mine is to use my supply of products that are just sitting around collecting dust. I am trying to think outside of the box on what I normally use as accessories on my cards. What is yours? If you don't have one yet, make one now!
