Birthday Wishes

How was your weekend? Ours was pretty good.  It’s been pretty rainy and icky here lately so it was a good weekend to just bake some cookies, hang out as a family, watch a movie, and play a board game . . . a great relaxing weekend.  Hope your weekend was too!

I have this card to share today featuring an absolutely adorable little image from Lili of the Valley called Maisie Two Balloons.  I just love this little cutie!  I used some patterned papers from My Mind’s Eye’s Just Dreamy 2 line.

I stamped the image on copic x-press it cardstock using tuxedo black memento ink and colored it with copic markers.  I used these maker colors: E000, E00, E11, E13, R12, R14, R17, R27, R46, R89, E33, E35, E37, E29, C4, C6, C8, BG11, BG32, BG34, colorless blender.  I added some baker’s twine from my etsy shop and used some glossy accents on the balloons to make them nice and shiny.  That great sentiment is from Catslife Press.

If you’ve never ordered from Lili of the Valley, they are a great company with great customer service.  I was a very happy customer before I got the opportunity to design for them (and absolutely love getting to design for them!).  They offer free worldwide shipping on orders over L25 which is about $40 and I always got my order in about a week (from the UK to the US).

Hope you have a great week!
