Hey there everyone - I wanted to post this card yesterday but we had a wee bit of drama in our home.
In the morning I was talking to my daughter - Marcie - on my cell phone and I said I would go and check to see if the mail was here yet. I hung up and walked out of my craft room (in the basement) and a bat was there --- fluttering around on the floor Right. By. My. LEG!! I screamed. I cried. I definitely ran...... up the basement stairs to the garage. I swear my legs were out the door before I was. BIG ugh. I had to go back in the house to the upstairs and grab the phone to call Marcie back and when I was upstairs - what would you know - that dang bat flew upstairs to the kitchen right where I was standing. ......and I began the screaming and running process all over again. Poor Marcie came tearing over to see if I was being beaten/robbed/whatever. I was outside scream-crying. It seems funny now - but oh my goodness, I am terrified to go back downstairs.
Anyway - here is the card that I wanted to post - It was my other daughter Holly's birthday on Tuesday, so using the Make It Monday technique that Dawn McVey had shown LAST week -
Gradient Watercolor Diecuts, I put together a bright and cheery birthday card.
I used my Zig markers for the background and then die cut with the Mighty Oak Die Collection - using the watercolour pieces for my focal image.
I white embossed the sentiment from the $5 set Birthday Classics: June Mini Stamp Set onto vellum and hid the glue dot under pretty colourful buttons.
My Harvest Gold card base was a perfect companion to finish it off! Happy Birthday to Holly! - and goodbye ugly little bat in bat heaven! UGH!
