Happy day...

Welcome to the weekend my friends!

It got down to single digits here last night so I'm still California dreamin'. ;)
Sad to say, I don't think that there are going to be any new Copic colors added to the family this year. The only news I've been able to find is about their new adhesives. I'm kinda bummed but at least it will save me some money in the long run I guess, LOL!

So today's card features a Fairy Glen image from Sugar Nellie called Let them Eat Cake. I adore these sweet fairies and was happy to get another one inked up. Because she has that delicious cake it seemed like a no-brainer to make this into a birthday card. I hit the scrap bags for papers and was thrilled to find these prints that both gave me a fun color palette to work from and created that perfect party atmosphere for this little sweetie. I just wish that using three pieces of paper made more of a dent in the ol' paper stash. I'm thinking that the problem is that because of all that was going on though out the summer and early fall, I didn't get the chance to do my annual 1000 sheets giveaway. That has been such a great way to clear things out in the past that I'm thinking I may have to get on it sooner rather than later. I promise to keep you all posted on when I get things all worked out for that. ;)

Ok, off to work I go. Toodles!

Such a cute card, Amy! I wonder if Copic is not coming out with new colors this year because they just put out an anniversary collection of their most popular colors. Just a thought...

Amy, This is just adorable! I love the papers for a Birthday card. Talk about a happy card. I love your new stamp as well. She is just so sweet with her awesome cake. I have to confess, I am bummed to read that Copic isn't coming out with 12 new colors. For the first time, I was ready to go with that. :O) I guess I'll just have to find another way to spend my money. Like that is ever a problem for me. lmbo.... We are in the single digits as well, and I am busy snuggling with Lucy while I do a little blog hopping this morning. I hope you have a great day at work. Hugs, Lisa

It is gloomy but in the mid-60's in NE Ohio today ~ more like a spring day! The cold weather is returning in a couple of days though!
