Welcome!

So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Happy Birthday!

This is Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge Week 91 -- Make a birthday card suggested by Patty. The challenge runs from January 21 thru January 27. (here is the challenge website)

I decided to use Marks' Finest Papers a Heinrich Company stamps sets, Pussy Willows  and All About Love. MFP cs Snowstorm Smooth, Strawberry Freeze and Papertray dp. Also was my first use of the Heartfelt Creations layered elegant swirl diecut -- really adds a little pizzaz to the diecut world..and it was a bit tricky to get it to line up and match! Also used Spellbinders scalloped heart die.

The images were colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. Stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento, Vivid Raspberry and the sponged background was either Memento Angel Pink, Versa Sea Breeze or Versa Lime. Added some Recollections brads and covered the inside of the brad with Candi dots, Really Reasonable Ribbon's pink twine cord, some pink bows and some MFP paper flowers.

And the doors were created to open and make a wish for a Happy Birthday!

Front and then open the door....

and Happy Birthday!
