I hope you are all doing well! It's furlough Friday for me and boy am I happy! I really needed a break. Anyway, if you've been reading, I had to make 5 birthday cards for this month and I've completed all of them except for 1.
This week Penny Black had a special challenge blog hop since they've had 100 challenges so far. So I decided to enter. I followed their sketch and made 2 birthday cards with it.
The first card is for my co-worker and friend Kelly, I used a new PB hedgehog design off of the clear stamp set "Wonderful Day" and then blinged the heck out of it. I used glittery bo bunny paper that I got from cute stuff. For the side border I used a SU dry emboss folder and I made my own glimmer spray so I spritzed it all over the flower. I actually got the idea to layer to main image over the flower from Beth who was the first stop on the blog hop- check her out she does amazing work!
The 2nd card I made is actually for Kelly's youngest daughter Katie. Katie is a bundle of energy and so funny- she just made 3 years old! I used 2 Penny Black images from "It's your day" stamp set and then colored it w/ copics. I then added glitter to the top of the cupcake and used my glitter pen to highlight the bow on the present on the other image. I'm going to her birthday party later on today and get to eat cake w/ her :)
Well, I hope you all have a blessed weekend and take care of yourselves. I am going to lay low this weekend and actually try to craft but also work on the website for the Waipahu Community Coalition that I am involved with. I was elected secretary in January and it's been a non-stop ride since then. I had already created our Cane Haul Run blog last year, but now I'm tasked with creating and updating the website, facebook page and some other stuff. WHEW! I'm pooped. But seriously, it's a great group and we are all working towards providing drug free and safe activities for our community members but also to instill Waipahu Pride in the residents. If you are interested in joining us on 8/22/10 @ 700am for the 2nd Annual Waipahu Cane Haul Run go here for more information (right now we're still working on finishing up registration forms etc, but keep checking back at this blog and also the cane haul run blog for more information.
