Oh Fudge....Berry Happy Belated B-Day!!!

Last week I was doing a lot of water colouring to prep for a demo that I did on Saturday at the Scrapbook Academy! I also, made a belated B-day card for one of my bestest friends, Dana. Ok, how embarrassing is that...I missed her B-day and here I am making all theses cards and I didn't make a card for her....shame! So, I coloured in cross-stitched Tilda for Dana with my Distress inks and made her this belated B-day card.

Dana is a cross-stitcher, scrapbooker, and card maker/stamper...ok let's just say she is one crafty girl, smile! She is also a fabulous Mary Kay consultant too, wink!!!! I visited her Saturday night for tea and hand delivered my late card with birthday wishes. We visited and I know she really loved the card and said she appreciates all the little details that I put into it for her! Ahhh, what a sweetie and I even ended up leaving her house with gifts!!! She RAKed me with three fabulous Heidi Swapp word stamps (Memoreis, love and cherish) and some metal CD tins that I wanted to store my Nesties in ....thanks, Dana...you Rock!!!
I made the card base 6X6 out of some dark chocolaty Bazzill Bling cardstock and used my new 6x6 pad of The Glitter Sweet Stack by DCWV. I used a MFT sentiment and stamped it on a tag I cut with QK 2X2 die. Then I added a few prima flowers here and there, attached them with MM brads and added some Stickles and Sakura stardust pen to add some sparkle...it looks much more shimmery IRL!
I printed my inside sentiment on the computer using my favourite font, Wendy Medium, to match the MFT sentiment on the front of the card!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look and make sure you drop by tomorrow to see what Kimmie and I have created for this month's "Kim and Tara challenge"!!!

Tara, your cards ROCK!! I love the way you colored your Magnolia stamps. Did you water color with the Tim Holtz ink? I am just becoming a HUGE fan of his ink, I had no idea how versatile it is. If you don't mind me asking, what ink do you use to stamp your images? I have been using india ink, but it does smear some when using my Prisma markers. Have a creative week! Can't wait to come back and see what else you have up!

This is really pretty Tara. I love the colours you have used, especially for Tildas dress.

Oh gosh this is adorable!! I LOVE that you matched the font inside the card with the stamp on the front. I didn't know you could do that!!

You've also got to teach me how to colour with distress inks. Well, how about just watercolouring in general...I stink at it.

Can't wait 'til tomorrow!!! *wink*

Hi Tara,
Yay, I too am a Tar-ah girl. I was born on St Patrick's Day and was delivered by an Irish doctor, so my mum was influenced by those factors. My Irish connection ends there though! I used to hate my name when I was growing up as my classmates spelt it backwards and I became a rat, lol!!! Now I quite like it because it is fairly unusual. Must drive you bonkers being called Tear-ah all the time but hey, what can you do!
I love the card you made for your friend, it's so sweet and I'm a sucker for a Tilda card, I love them. I've just joined the Magnolia club actually so I'm waiting on the new Christmas Tildas :o)
I see you used distressed inks, the colouring is fab. I've only tried colouring with them once but might give it another go now I've seen your card!
Take care, hugs, Tara xxxx

Hey, just wanted to say....I'm Dana and I did love it, it was so sweet and thoughtful. I am waiting for the day I have my own scrapbooking room and can decorate the walls with all of the gorgeous cards I have received from Tara!! Because they are way more than a card, they are a work of art....worthy of a frame!! I'll cherish them forever!! Thanks sunshine!!! Dana
