happy girly-girl birthday


What better way to start a Friday than with a girly-girl birthday card!! Now, if my girl Amy's birthday wasn't in March, she may be suspecting this is for her, but it isn't. (Sorry, Amy!)

A friend of mine asked me to make this card for a family member of hers, so it has already been given a good home.


A cool tip on this card for you... I made the glittery pattern on the shoe (cut from a Cricut cart) by using the Maya Road doilie stamps with black ink then embossing it with a silver glitter. The end affect is a really intricate pattern on the shoe, making it look less like a plain die cut on card stock.

I want to give a huge THANK YOU to my co-workers at NextStepU. This week I noticed the excessive overflow of cards in my finished projects bin. It was a bit out of control and it made me sad that so many cards and tags weren't going to be given a good home.

So, my lovely co-workers are now the proud recipients of many of the projects that have made appearances on this blog. And it was fun to hold a mini craft fair from my desk this week. :)

Thanks again!!!! I'm overwhelmed by your support for my crafting. Love you!!!
