HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANN!!

This is my second post today - please scroll down for today's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Post (SSSC101)

We're having a blog hop for Ann Kranitz's birthday - if you came her from Wendy Jordan's blog you are on the right path; if not please hop over to the start at Karen Motz's blog.

I met Ann last fall when I was at  BFF Karen's and we drove to New York (you're not suppose to pronounce the "r" right Ann?!) to see Jodi and Ann.  OMG it was so much fun - I've can't remember the last time I laughed so hard!  I'm sure they thought we were crazy in the restaurant.  All I can say is both Ann & Jodi have strong New York accents - so this Canadian girl was laughing and trying to figure out what they were saying!  A few times Karen & I were totally confused - can't wait until the next time we all get together!! 


For my card I played along again with todays Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC101) but flipped the sketch.  I chose one of MFT's sweet PI Girls Birthday Princess and stamped her with mementos ink.  I coloured the image with copics, shaded with caran d'ashe pencils and paper pieced her dress and party crown.  For the icing on the cake I used dimensional pearls in espresso.  The ds paper is October Afternoons fly a kite.

Ann I hope you have a fantastic birthday - wishing you the very best!! Now hop over to Kandi Phillips blog Krafty Kandi!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Dana
