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"!!!
