Birthday Bandit

Sista Gail had to make an 'emergency run' to daughter Amy's place of work this week. The emergency? Amy needed a few mama-made cards for her 'peeps'. Ahh...the responsibilities of being a supervisor. It makes me feel all cozy inside knowing people (even if they're "only family") appreciate my handy work. SOMEBODY has to use these darn cards - 'cuz I sure don't. I am the worse card giver ever to prowl the aisle of a Hallmark. I do like giving away the cards I make for OTHERS (evidently more kind and considerate than me) to use on special occasions. While I'm on the honesty pot I'll tell you that I like making cards for others to use because then I can make whatever theme I want...whatever my muse whispers in my ear - or hits me over the head with...it's up to the giver to decide what the heck to do with them. I like the no pressure stress reduction of my card making Bubble time.

Since Amy gobbled up a few of the birthday cards that her Aunt Gail had on hand I was charged with making more. So...here we go.

Grab Your Party Hat
~Base card - pre-made window card - package of three from the Target dollar bin - edges smudged with Stampabilities Cotton Candy
~Left corner party hat is a sticker from the Dollar Tree
~Sentiment stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black - stamped on purple cardstock layered on green and pink cardstock
~Clump of ribbons from my stash

And this is the inside of the card...

~Party hats punch used - topped with glue then glittered
~Inside sentiment - Stampabilities - It's Your Day, colored with Copics
Gingerloft - Glitter or Bling
Crazy for Challenges - Birthday card

Sista Judy and Gail - keep your editing pens close at hand I'll be posting another card with a Memere Old story included. I love having my own personal proofreaders. I just hope I correct all the spelling spoofs and grammar gaffes before they land on too many eyes.

All good wishes,
