Birthdays *really* Are Best!

Happy Sunday everyone! So glad to be back after a minor procedure a week ago. It seems to have sucked the mojo out of me! :-) It's hard to do anything when you feel exhausted after doing anything. On Thursday, I did go with friends on a Carolina Shop Hop; boy did that ever just knock me out! We went to 5 stores in South Carolina (we never made it to any NC stores). It was a fun day, but I think it was too soon after my procedure and really took me til yesterday to recuperate! Anyway, birthdays are on my mind, especially with mine coming up in a couple of weeks. I thought this image by 2 Cute Ink would make an adorable birthday card.

Stamps - balloon birdie (2 Cute Ink); birthdays are the best (AMuse)
Cardstock - green, peach, yellow (stash); Cafe Mediterranean (DCWV)
Copics - YR01, YR02, YR12, YR14, YR15, YR24, G40, G43, G46, Y21, YR31, Y35, B0000, 0
Ink - tuxedo black (Memento)
Other - Spellbinders dies, yellow gems, pop dots

That's it for now chickies... Have a great rest of the weekend and a wonderful week! I'll see ya again next Sunday. :-)

Hugs, Margaret

Hippo Birthday

Good morning and happy Sunday everyone! Today's post is using the another cute digi from 2 Cute Ink... the birthday hippo. I love the thought of this image because as we all know, a hippo is way to heavy to be floating on top of a balloon. On one's birthday however... *anything* is possible!

Cardstock - blue & yellow (stash), pattern papper (DCWV All About Boys Stack)
Copics - Y11, Y13, Y08, Y15, Y18, B21, B23, B24, B41, B0000, R20, R22, R24, R27, Coo, C0, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5
Ink - Memento tuxedo black, SU ballet blue
Other - Spellbinders reg & scalloped ovals, cloud template (Rosie's Roadshow?), pop dots

Here's a side view of the card. The image is popped, but the sentiment is popped higher to stand out from the busy background paper. :-)

When you enter your card, you could possibly win 6 digis of your choice in the 2 Cute Ink shop!
