Birthday Surprises



Hi - I'm actually very pleased with my card :) After attending a card class yesterday at my local scrapbook store and making 6 cards, I came home and whipped this up last evening. It's for my daughter's half sister who turned 7. I think I found my Mojo, which has been missing lately. It helps though that my spare room, now my craft room is coming together and mine again. It had been the junk room during our renovations. I've finally got the bed out of there, have my new shelves set up, and actually unpacked my Christmas present, a Cricut Expression!! Time is of the essence now, as this is also going to be where my new puppy's crate is going to be kept. I'm waiting for an Airedale puppy! There is one female who is a month old but I'm not sure I'm getting her yet as she's being evaluated for show prospects. If not, there is another litter due in April which would come home in June. So, fingers crossed I get this female, but if not, I can wait a couple more months. I've only been waiting a year so far ;)

So, back to my card, this is Sugarplums Cookie Emma from CC Designs. I used Basic Grey's Olivia paper, the sticky ribbon and flower are from the same set. There is just a wee bit of Star Dust stickles on her ribbons and lace. I was super excited to finally use my CC Designs cutter and stamp set called Tags It for the birthday sentiment. I want more of those!!!

I'm entering this card over at All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes.
