New Years Day - Happy Birthday Card #1

Happy New Year's Day! How was your night...ours was eventful...(LOL) but not the way you think. Our dishwasher wouldn't we had water ever where as our New Years Eve consisted of fixing it. We did however have a good time getting passport pictures for Robin & Kaitlyn, a little shopping, we made homemade pizza, then at 10 pm I picked my oldest son up from a friends, we did the count down and finished the night off with a movie "Shek Ever After".

Today has been a quiet one, my oldest is snowmobiling and everyone else is out to play with their cousin. It left me sometime to finally finish my card from Thursday afternoon and get some cleaning done and supper on. My parents are coming and my oldest son's friend for a roast, potatoes and carrots. It is cooking now.

So the sketch that I have wanted to work on since Monday is at Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge by Mary-Jo at Techno Stamper. Her sketches are awesome to work with can't wait to see what she has for us in 2011.

Now a color combo was a must for me so I stopped bye The Color Dare to see what they had this week...and boy they didn't disappoint, another fabby challenge #90 BAJA BREEZE, PINK PIROUETTE, RICH RAZZLEBERRY AND VERY VANILLA!

Now for a theme: Stampin' B's Design Team challenge #91 this week is to make a celebration card! Right away I decided on a Birthday card.

Here is my Happy Birthday card. Isn't she a cutie...well I won her at my Stampin' Club's Chinese exchange...and this was the perfect time to get her inky. I might have gone over board with the bling...but I felt like my card was lacking something. So bling it was...LOL.

Recipe: Stamps: Peek a Bunny - Sugar Nellie Stamps, Happy Thoughts - Verve and Annabelle Stamps; Paper: Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla; Ink: Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry; Accessories: circle punches (SU), markers (SU), scallop border punch (SU), butterfly punch (MS), paper piercer, gems and pearls, Swiss Dot embossing folder.

Well, I think I hear another card calling my name...LOL. Challenge surfing I go. I want to thank the ladies for the fabby challenges I entered this card into, it was a blast to see your inspiration and fun to play. :)
