New followers - New Card!

Hi Everyone!   I just wanted to say hello and thank you to all my new (and old) followers/friends.  I appreciate you all so very much and can't believe how quickly my numbers are growing!  We'll get to 75 in no time and blog candy will be given with great joy!  I can't wait to send it out to one lucky follower.  Please be sure to tell your friends and if they name you in their comment, you get an extra entry for each friend you send here!  I don't have a cool blinkie or anything for you to post on your blog, but referrals are fantastic!  Thanks to all of you and your continued support of my ramblings and whims.  I hope you truly enjoy my blog as it is written to be read. :0)

Enough mushiness right?  Onto a cute project I've created in the last few days.  This one is a birthday card for my Bestie.  I was going to make her a card with a cowgirl and a horse cause I was dying to try out my new Once Upon a Princess cart, but I scraplifted a perfect paragraph I found on some one's blog (if it's yours, please let me know and I'll give you proper credit).  I just have a hard time remembering where I get things cause I subscribe and view a couple hundred blogs a day!!!  No intention of stealing and claiming as my own, I promise!  The saying was just gorgeous and absolutely what I wanted my friend to know.  Without further ado, here is the card:
Happy Birthday to Michele 2011

For this card I used the following:

  • Yellow card stock from Recollections from Michael's
  • Ribbon from my stash
  • Yellow flower from Lil Davis Designs
  • Happy Birthday metal plaque from stash
  • Patterned blue paper that I won from Jill :0)
  • Inked the edges with blue chalk ink from the dollar bin at Michael's
  • I printed the paragraph from my computer and it was running out of ink so I just added the chalk ink to it to make it look like it was supposed to be that way! ;0)  I think it turned out nicely!
Simple, but sweet card and I think it turned out lovely.  Come to find out (couldn't believe I didn't know this already) blue and yellow are two of her favorite colors!  She loved the card and it really came from my heart.

Thanks all for viewing and hope you have a scraptabulous day in crafty land!
