Anyway, I'm going to be talking about a birthday today. You see, Kerry, the Queen Ladybug of Ladybug Crafts Ink had her
I often think those with December birthdays probably get cheated a little KWIM? It's so close to Christmas...so are their birthday gifts combined with their Christmas gifts? ... are their birthday gifts wrapped with Christmas wrapping paper? ... are their birthday cards made with Christmas images? ...oops, sorry Kerry, but I just had to use this image for your card!
Now, I guess it probably seems strange to use a stamp from another company to make Kerry's birthday card, but I was already sending Kerry some LCI cards for her CHA booth. Then I remembered that when I applied for Kerry's DT this past summer I had to send pictures of some of my favorite cards. One of the pictures I sent Kerry was Mavis Builds a Sandcastle. I found out later that Kerry really liked the Mavis card, so I wanted Kerry to have her very own "Mavis"!
Anyway, I colored Mavis with my copics and prismacolor pencils. I used red Stickles on the holly berries and Glamour Dust on her dress. I used some pearls on the flowers and added a ribbon and bow. I tied the sentiment tag with some embroidery floss.
Here's the inside of the card before I wrote a little note to Kerry. Well, I just had to finish the inside...nothing but the best for Kerry! And besides, Mary J's habit of beautifully finishing the inside of her cards is starting to grow on me...which is NOT a good thing. I am probably the slowest cardmaker in the world. Honestly, it takes me forever to finish a card. So the last thing I need is to start decorating the inside of my cards lol!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
