happy birthday to you...


Happy Friday!!!!!!!

Finally...it's been a week for me...but tonight I get to meet up with my friends!

Here is today's card:


Yup, I'm still being inspired by Lisa Pace's book.  Leave it to me to be inspired by her style at 2:30 in the morning...I'm live blogging and it is now 4:15.

This is another layer filled card but in order to shave some time off of my crafting, I decided to not do any stitching on this one.


I discovered this awesome American Crafts glitter paper the last time I was at Impress.  It's much thinner that the older AC glitter paper that I have so it is easier to work with.  

I used Jane's Doodles



 I've been enjoying working with dictionary pages but do you know there is always one or two inappropriate words on a page...as in inappropriate to craft with...It seems like it takes me longer to pick a page than to color the image.

Did you notice the smidge of pink wool felt...yes, I'm slowly using the gorgeous Spanish Wool Felt that Lorena sent to me...**sigh**  It is so easy to hoard because it is so pretty and luxurious.

Although the SRM sentiment doesn't necessarily POP...I like the look of it. It nicely anchors the image on the top and bottom of that panel.

5 layers + the card base

Remember that Paper Issue's current challenge is:

Stamp on it!

Love your card and the stamping on the old book page and then coloring. Impress has some wonderful things, I get the newsletter from them and am always drooling over something. We don't have an impress here.
