Happy Birthday with some Mairzy Doats

HELLOOOOO Blog Friends!  It seems like ages since I've been here on these parts.  We've been firing things up on our Facebook Fan Page that I sometimes forget to head on over here and share with you all.  If you haven't been to our new Fan Page, head on over and be sure to "LIKE" us.  At least I would hope that you like us. *grins*.

I've been moving papers throughout the store, again, and revisiting some older collections that I personally love.  Granted, I LOVE the new stuff, but sometimes the older stuff is just as much fun. 

Happy Birthday

September, October, and November is packed with birthdays in our family.  I think we've already celebrated 4 birthdays and 3 anniversaries and there are still lots more to go.  I made this card for my ex-mother-in-law who is celebrating her birthday today. 

The image is from Crafter's Companion called  Pop Corn the Bear Birthday Hugs.  I just love these little bears (gee, I wonder why - LOL).  You can bet you will see the entire line of these in the store over the next few weeks.  Aren't they a-dor-a-ble!  My designer papers are from Dream Street's Mairzy Doats Collection.  I just love the colors in this line.  YUMMY!  You can head on over to The Beary Scrap and pick it up 35% OFF!  The edges were roughed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and just realized I don't have it listed on the website - don't worry, I'll fix it.  I then inked them up with some Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk and applied some Stardust Stickles Glitter Glue to the edges.  The paper trim is an old Fiskar's Border Punch that I found when I was cleaning up and reorganizing my scrap studio at home.  It's amazing what one will find when they reorganize.  I added some pretty Mulberry Paper Flowers, some pink satin ribbon from my stash.

This adorable little critter stamped on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics.  If you haven't tried this paper yet, you have to.  Oh, I LOVE IT!  I used E31, E35, E51 and E50 for the bear.  R81 to R83 for the pinks, G20 to G24 for the greens.  I used Magenta stickles for the dots.  Oh, that cute little ducky was colored with Y11 and Y12, and a YR that I can't remember at the moment.

Now if I can just go and find a challenge to enter this one in.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

I'm glad you stopped in for a visit.
