Oh My!!

So my last post was on the 13th of April...I have a few more cards that I need to post from all those birthdays I mentioned...but I have to say., when I signed on to blogger today I had a minor panic attack!!  They have changed their look and it totally freaked me out...I'm bad enough when it comes to the basics but now it feels like I have to figure out everything all over again.  As I am writing this my page is blank and I don't see any of the stuff I used to see so it looks like I need to play a bit and figure it all out...again!!

On to the card...In my last post I mentioned I needed to make a bunch of birthday cards.  After Hubby's, a party Jessie was going to was next in line.  I let her pick the stamp and of course she picked Posh has a present from Stamping current fav...well at least until my next order arrives...LOL!!  The image is coloured with copics and I paper pieced the dress with some of the same DP (Bo Bunny) I used on the card.  Of course all girls love a little bling so I added some gem stones to the baga and some clear baubles to the top and bottom of the card.  The sentiment is from one of my MFT sets and I circled it with dazzling diamonds.  The Mom of the girl who received the card is a card maker herself...She loved it!!

Thanks for taking a look!

So it was Hubby's bday yesterday...not that we got to celebrate since Jessie was in a volleyball tournament that went until 8:30...and by the time we got home he was gone to his Thursday night basketball game. We were going to get up early with him in the morning and give him his presents but go figure...he had an early morning meeting and was out of the house by 5:45...just a little too early for my liking!!

I gave him his present and card late last night (courtside seats to a Harlem Globetrotters game tonight) and the kids got up with him this morning for 7:00 (much more reasonable) and gave him the rest.

The card he got was one I made using a Mo Manning digital image...the kids thought it was perfect!! I used a base card from a kit that has been in my pile of stuff for ages and added some Island Indigo paper from SU that was run through the Bigshot. The image is coloured with copics and layered on SU's more mustard. The sentiment is an old retired one stamped in Island Indigo as well. I added some grosgrain ribbon to the back of the image...I didn't think he would appreciate bling (LOL) and popped up the image with dimensionals.

we don't actually have a reclining chair but this is him on the couch being the King of XBox 360 Live...NBA 2012.

Now I've got to go make a card for a party Jessie is going to today and 2 cards for a party Jordan is going to tomorrow for about last minute!!

thanks for stopping by!!
