Another Birthday Card

This is another birthday card I made. Whenever I make a family card, my dad remembers he forgot to "buy" a card and asks if I can make him one! Of course, I can't say no. I decided to use a "Bella". I think a birthday is a wonderful excuse to indulge yourself so this stamp really appealed to me.
I colored with my Copics and my sentiment is from my Xyron. I guess by now you've guessed that Basic Grey is one of my favorite design papers. I am also an "equal opportunity" stamper - meaning I love and use all different stamps!

Happy Birthday Dear Daughter

I was just a "little" late on completing my daughter's birthday card. After all, I had the grandchildren (ages from 1 to 9) with me for three weeks! It was a fabulous time, but simply impossible for creating cards, LOL! Every time I even attempted to make a card all these little hands were right there with me also wanting to create cards. So, "Gramie" helped all those little hands making their own cards!
This is a Stampavie stamp from Rachelle Anne Miller, "Lola's Tea Party". What a marvelous image for a birthday stamp. I used Basic Grey design paper and colored with my Copics. I also used "Renaissance Hearts", one of the new pendant dies from Spellbinders.
I also decorated the inside of my
card, I think it adds the finishing
So although this is late, I want to say "Happy Birthday Amy"!

How About Some "Digital Pencil"?

I just had to tell 'ya about the newest digi site I discovered, Mo's Digital Pencil. I fell in love with the image below, "Soaking Up The Joy". I needed an image and I needed one in a hurry. I discovered one of my dear "Curves" instructors was leaving to reunite with her significant other and pursue her dream. Well, this image was just perfect! And...I could have it in a snap!
I used my Copics (mostly the new pastels which I love!) and Basic Grey's new lemonade series.
I also had the most perfect inside verse which I luckily had on hand:
This was another digi I recently purchased from Paper Makeup Stamps. So...I love stamping and I also love digi's! I'm so glad we "stampers" have so many options.

Happy First Birthday Joshua!

Yes, sad but true...I am late posting a birthday card I made for my one year-old grandson Joshua. He is such a cutie patootie! He turned one on August 7th.
I used House Mouse-Designs Gruffie Cake Walk for my card and DCWV's All About Boys. Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday to Me!

No, it's not really my birthday but it sure feels like it is! I have had nothing but computer problems since May - my laptop crashed a total of 7 times! I have not been a happy camper (to put it mildly). My dh has watched me moan and groan all summer and I've been on his workstation many times when he wanted to use it - so we visited the closest Apple store on Thursday. And...I came home with a new MacBook Pro! I have been agonizing on whether to stick with a PC or go to a MAC. I am an amateur photographer, so it made sense to go with the system with the best graphics. I have a lot to learn, but so far this has been like heaven!
