It's my Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a great week. I know that I had a fabulous week celebrating my birthday which was on Tuesday. One of my best friends; hi Tema, came from Montreal to spend a week with me (not long enough), and we had such a great time. Although we thought that we would have lots of time to stamp, it never happened. On Tuesday, Tema and Emily (owner of Stamping Bella) took me to Buffalo on a shopping spree. We shopped 'till we dropped, and had a fantabulous time.

On Thursday Emily and Ryan ordered Sushi for lunch, and my good friends and lunch bunch group brought me a deeeelicious cake and we spend the afternoon stamping, eating and laughing. This weekend I am going to spend time with my 2 gorgeous grand-daughters and my kids. I was really spoiled with gifts, cards and an yummy Edible basket from my family. These are chocolate covered fruit in a beautiful basket. Like I said, what a fabulous week.

It is also time for the Bellarific Challenge, did you check it out? If not, then go on over and see all the great cards everyone made. If you didn't have the chance to join, make sure to check out the challenge on Monday, and all you have to do is submit it to Emily by Thursday at 5. You might be the lucky winner of Bella Bucks. Try it, you won't regret it.

With all the excitement I totally forgot to make the card for the challenge, soooooo at midnight on Thursday, I sat down, and thanks to Karen Motz, a Bellarific Babe's sketch, I quickly made this card and submitted it. Karen's sketch was very clean and easy to follow, and I did it in exactly 10 minutes. It isn't my best card but I do like the colours I chose. Purple and black make me very happy.

Everything I used on the card is from

I used Quickutz embossing folder to emboss the purple layer for texture and LuLu Ketto for the image. I coloured her with Lyra pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I also used glitter on the wings ( don't know if it shows on the screen). The embellishment in the center of the flower is a frosted Bon Bon.

I hope you all enjoy a great weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.

I would love to hear from you so leave a message.
