Make a Wish


Good Morning!  It's another fabulous The Sweet Stop sketch.


I've made this card for my Mother's birthday which is a little over a week away.  Now I just need to convince her not to visit my blog until then.  :)  I'm thrilled that I have been able to keep my New Year's resolution and use un-inked stamps and to give my cards away!!  All of my cards this year have been made for a current occasion and not for my stash.  I was collecting WAY too many cards and not giving nearly enough of them away.  I have a really hard time giving them away, do you?

I've used Magician Tilda which is another image that had never seen any ink until now.  I think she is one of the prettiest Tilda images there is.  I just LOVE her hair and the way she's standing.  The DP is Be Mine from Kaisercraft which were all distressed and inked them with Eggplant chalk ink.  The ticket was given the same treatment.  The image panel is popped up using foam tape and because I just felt like adding even more I inked a paper doily and placed it behind.  The sparkle is on her sheer apron is a combination of Pixie Dust Shimmerz and Star Dust Stickles.  I mixed the two and painted it on so that it would really appear sheer and not just sparkly.  Sliver Stickles was used on the wand and the flower is from Prima.

Do You Stack Up = #12 Shine On

Awwww I love this one Wendy! The way you done her little apron is awesome. It looks like you tied an apron around her little waist! Beautiful work!! I'm so honored to be a recipient of one of your cards during your New years Resolution!! =o) I treasure it!
I am like you in the sense of not being able to give them out..one I either think it's not good enough to send out, or two I feel like I'd never be able to make that particular card that great again lol so I have to have it as proof..haha
Happy Birthday to Brooke!! Hope she had a wonderful party today and got lots of fun goodies!
