Birfday Cake

Today I don't have a Christmas card to share (which is going to be a rare thing the next few weeks!!)


I used Mercy's sketch from a few weeks back (MTSC99) and stamped Izzie has a birfday cake onto bella's bestest paper.  The image is coloured with copics, but again I am trying to learn how to shade with pencils (it's a learning curve!!)  The ds paper is from the paper loft called well worn.  The ribbon is from an awesome store Kar & I stopped at on our way back from NY to her house - The Great American Stamp Store; they had SO MUCH RIBBON it was overload on the senses!!  On the polka dots I added some black micro fine glitter, and on the icing I used some glamour dust glitter.


This weeks Bellariffic Fridays challenge is a white only card - just some colour on your image!  I must tell you this is definitely a challenge for me, I love my colourful layers!!  Email your cards to Em by Thurs to be included & you can win some bella bucks.


Thanks for stopping by & have a great day

copics: R0000, R00, R11, R20, R21, YG03, E0000, E000, E00, E21, R20, Y21, Y23, N0, N3, E44, E47, E49

Just wanted to let you know that I, a fellow Calgarian in Ontario visiting my sister this week, met your cousin Crystal at Scrapbook Queens in Mississauga this afternoon.

Hello, small world LOL!

She and my sister know each other.... we were chatting, said I was a card maker, said I was from Calgary, she asked if I knew you, name sounded familiar-ish, she said you had a blog, I said "Dana's House of Cards"? , she said "yes", I said "we've never met but I read her blog"

Interesting!

This is too cute Dana. Love the coloring and yeahhh....you gave her some soft gray shading at her feet. You're getting it!! Now I have to go check out the ribbon store... perhaps it will be close to my new home.
