Happy Birthday...

TGIF my friends!

Any big and exciting plans for this weekend? It's going to be pretty mellow around here between work and checking in on my mom. This past week's unscheduled hospital visits kind of knocked around things on my to-do list so there are a few things on it that I need to get done before Monday rolls around again. 

Anywho, it felt like it'd been a while since I colored up a Pure Innocence so I went ahead and inked up Birthday Girl. Being short on crafty time yesterday I also knew that I wanted to do a CAS style card with her. The BG Knee Highs paper pad not only had the bright colors that I wanted for this Birthday Girl but it also had that super cute rainbow chevron print that I ended up using to paper piece her dress. Seriously, if I could find a maxi dress with a print like that I would live in it all summer, LOL! But I digress... there were quite a few papers that I wanted to use but how to make them work with the quick CAS design I was going for? That is when I remembered the MFT email that I got Wednesday with their newest sketch challenge. It was just what I needed to get this card rolling. So this is my first time actually playing along in the MFT Stamp Club challenge and I can't believe it took me this long to join the fun! 

Thanks for popping by, I'll catch ya on the flip side. :)

Hi Amy, I am very happy to see that your Mom is home again. Hope she is feeling better soon. This card is just adorable! I love the papers that you have used. I have not seen them before. I am waiting most impatiently for my Monday Morning stamp to arrive at my door any day now. lol... It is really making me want to make the time to play once again. I hope you have a great weekend even though you have to work. It is suppose to be rainy here, so I am hoping to get the stamp and just relax and play while I listen to my Glee music. :O) Take care my friend and give your Mom a hug from us. Hugs, Lisa

Oh wow, I love how this turned out. The way you cut the chevron paper is fun. I have to do that to some chevron paper I have. Her dress is adorable.
