Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday and a few days ago my husband says to me "Can you make me a birthday card?"  Now I thought it was for his birthday that is middle of January so I said no problem honey! I have lots of time! He said "No, you only have 2 days" and snickered....The bugger wanted me to make my own birthday card for him to give to me LOLOL. Now I thought at first cheap bugger but then I thought hmmmmm that was really sweet that he likes my cards so much that he wanted to give me my own creation!
So I thought to myself, I could just make a card but thought I would challenge myself and make a mixed media first mixed media project! I think it turned out pretty nice.

Merry Christmas Monica

My daughter comes home this weekend and is meeting with her close friends to celebrate my daughters 18th Birthday!  WOW where does the time go?  During their lunch or dinner or maybe linner LOL they will also exchange Christmas prezzies!  So Ashley asked me to make some cards for her friends.  I had to make this one for one of her friends Monica because before they went to university they got together and made those mugs you colour up from Michaels and were drinking warm drinks I even think it might have been hot chocolate with marshmallows!

My Baby turns 18 today!

WOW!  18 years ago I had the most beautiful daughter in the world...I can say that because I am her mother ;c)   So I was compelled to make her a birthday card.  I hope she likes it.  I used her University Colours on the card to pair up the next chapter in her life begins with Adulthood!

The Digi that I used was Chels 18 from Simply Betty Stamps!  When I got this stamp although it was made for Chels it resembled my daughter quite a bit!  So I knew when the time came and Ashley celebrated her 18th birthday that I would use this image.  I paired it with the Tim Holtz Crazy Things Stamps for the Party Hat, Balloons and in the inside of the card, the Wrapped Gift.

The Copic's that I used to colour this card are:

Skin:  E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair:  E49, E47, E44, E43
