Another WTG

I have to say I'm enjoying finally taking some time to use the stamps I've been accumulating over the last few months....and WOW...two posts in the same week, I'm almost on a roll.

I used my new "Well Read" set from MFT the only thing I haven't decided on is the sentiment to put inside. I paper pieced the couch with some old (very old) scrapbook walls was a little finicky 'cause there are a couple of teeny tiny pieces. The rest of the image is coloured with copics and then layered on a piece of amethyst paper. I added a base layer of striped olive and a piece of SU's vintage violet...retired long ago. A few pearls and a small piece of ribbon tied around the image and voila...two cards in the same week!!!

Thanks for stopping by to have a look!!

Happy Birthday Nancy!!!!

Welcome to the birthday blog hop for Nancy McKinney. If you have arrived here from Melissa's blog you are in the right place...if you've just happened along you really ought to start at the beginning with Karen's and the follow the hop from the beginning...the cards are FABULOUS!!!

I put this card together for Nancy's b'day using Gifty Girl from MFT ...I just love the WTG sets...yes all of them!! I paper pieced the dress and one of the shopping bags using MME abbey road paper and added shine to the bag by filling it in with crystal effects. The rest is coloured in with copics. Once the image was finished I masked it and stamped "Happy, happy...." all across the background and added "Birthday" to the bottom. A little piece of ribbon at the side of the image and some pearls along the edge finished off the card. I swear it took me longer to remember how to post to my blog than it did to make the I'm crossing my fingers and hoping I remembered right!

Thanks for stopping by to have a look, you're hopping over to Wendy's blog for the last stop in the hop...and please stop by the super talented Nancy and to wish her a great day!!
