Happy Belated Birthday Tanya!!


Well hello all you scrappy peeps!! A while ago while I was on holidays, my friend and fellow DT member Tanya had a birthday and I did not get my poop in a group fast enough to get her card made before I left, so when I got back home, and got organized, I headed for the scrap room and made this card for her. Happy Belated Birthday Tanya!!! I hope your day was amazing! You deserve it!

Now Kraftin Kimmie’s challenge was definitely just that, a total challenge. It’s to use NO EMBELLISHMENTS!! Hard right?! I know!! It was extra hard for me to do because I know how much Tanya likes all things blingy and totally embellished, plus this image and sentiment just screams EMBELLISH ME!! lol So yeah, it was a hard one, but I did it! The butterflies are cut out of paper and I had to use my tiny attacher to staple them on because I couldn’t get them on there any other way, so I hope that doesn’t count as an embellishment!

The sentiment is a new one from Graphicat Designs, and it’s available now on her site. Isn’t it freakin hilarious?!  I LOVE it!!


And a close up:


I also used this sketch from Cute Card Thursday, so I’ll be entering it there as well :)

Well, there you have it! Another card. I’ve been told by my fellow scrappers that I’m not allowed to say that I’m not a card maker anymore, so I guess I’ll add that to my repertoire ;)

I just wanted to say thank you so much for taking the time to check out my creations! I really appreciate it, and I cherish each and every one of your kind words!

Life has been crazy around here and I hadn't gotten around to your blog lately. Glad to see you're still around. :) Oh and thanks for your sweet comments on my blog.
