Birthday Girl ( WMC39)



 
Jenny over at Wee Memories has wonderful challenges with awesome prizes. I enjoy entering her challenges ~ and the latest one is all about ribbons. Her sponsor this week is May Ribbons.... I wish we could buy them here in NZ but again, I have to order from overseas.
The card I made is for my great niece, Chelsea, who turns one next month. Some time ago Paula sent me some stamped images, and this little lady was one of them. I don't know who the stamp is by, but it is super cute. I used Copics to colour her in. Slowly building up my colours and learning how to colour with them. Still a ways to go! I used a nestie label to cut her out. The beautiful background is from a mat stack by DCWV... truly soft and glittery.  I added the yellow punched edge ( a paint swatch) and of course, the ribbon.  It is a lovely soft cream ribbon.  Not sure where I got it, but wish I had more as there was only just enough to do this.

Our weather has changed.... from hot and sunny to hot and rainy.... very very humid.  Last night  it was very difficult sleeping and I think tonight will be even worse!!!!  I have the fan going in the lounge already ~ will have to take it through to the bedroom later.  

Thanks for stopping by.... and many thanks to those who are keeping my SIL in your prayers.... it is appreciated.  She is deteriorating fast now, but I pray she is in no pain.

Awe what a cute card Dawn. I was going to look up which stamp it is, but the wonderful Donna beat me to it ;). I just want to let you know that I've given my blog a make over complete with a new name. So don't think you are in the wrong place xoxoxox

PS Thinking of your SIL - My heart goes out to all of you.
