Cake, candles and gifties.....

The challenge this week at Wee Memories is "Anything Goes" and there is a copic prize pack up for grabs! Since the mojo has been in my favor the last little bit, I was able to come up with a birthday card for the challenge.

Once again, I used those yummy imaginisce papers and colors with a few fun embellishlments. I've been wanting to put some birthday candles on a card for some time now, and finally got around to trying it. The most difficult part was adhering them - I ended up using generous amounts of liquid glass and they seem to be holding. It is a fairly bulky card, so obviously it will be a hand-delivered card rather than a "snail mail" card, but that's okay.

It has also been a long time since I colored a Magnolia image, so I thought this little guy would fit in perfectly with the boyish color theme here.

Have a great Sunday - the boys and I are hanging out today, took care of groceries yesterday so we get to hide inside - a good thing too since it's a balmy -29 c today!

  8. Hi Narna!
    Love the card, those papers are so scrummy and I love the little bingo card, that is such a lovely touch.
    So -29 huh? Get the bikinni out it's positively tropical! I have to admit that I'm intrigued about the "secret" you are working on......hmmmmm.....
    Meant to ask how you feel about getting your kids hands covered in (non-toxic!) ink....oh and do you have a scsnner?
    All will become clear but if your having a secret I'm darned if I'm not too!
