Happy Birthday to MY SIL

Happy Wednesday All! Hope that you are all keeping toasty warm in this recent cold freeze sweeping the country. Tonight I whipped up a quick card for my brother's wife, whose birthday is at the end of the month.  I have been itching to practice with my Spectrum Noir markers on more detailed stamps, so I got out a stamp set and my markers and had some crafty time. :)

I used TB1, 5, 7 and BT 1 and 2 for the dress and wings, CT 1 and 3 for the stars, GB 7, 8 and 10 for the hair, DG 3 and JG2 for the grass. The frog I colored in with LG5 and JG1.

I used The Sweetest Thing 6x6 paper pad by My Mind's Eye. The stamp and sentiment are from the Lucy set by Kanban.

I have also been looking to try the Spellbinders rubber embossings mats that my hubby got me Christmas with my circle and scallop circle Spellbinders dies. It took a couple tries to figure out how to get the best impression, but it got much easier after I properly read the directions. :)

Next I need to play with my heat embossing tool that hubby bought me for Christmas and vellum that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.



  1. Oh my, she is darling! You are doing awesome with your markers! Lisa will love this!
