Lulu's Birthday Wishes

Good morning to all of you.  I hope you had a great weekend.  Well, it's Monday so that means I have to catch up on all the things I didn't get accomplished over the weekend.  Unfortunately that means I have to do some house cleaning today (YUCK!)  But before I start that unpleasant task, I have another Kraftin' Kimmie card to share with you.

If you stop by the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog you'll see they're celebrating their third anniversary with some fun challenges and a chance to win prizes :-)  I made this card with the Birthday Lulu set.  This cute little Lulu with the pile of presents was colored with copics and colored pencils.  I used a doily, seam binding, button, and floss on my card.  Then I used Glamour Dust - on her hairbow, pigtail holders, the gifts, and all around the edge of the image and the sentiment.  Lots of sparkle on this card ... and on me (haha).  Be sure to stop by their blog to find out the challenge details.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week.

Hugs, Anita
