Birthday Card

A dear friend from church is having a birthday so I made this card for her.
Again I use Dotty for You retired paper pack.  I inked all edges with Outdoor Denim Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad ($5.95), the stamp Better with a Friend ($10.00 Hostess Stamp set only), I used our previous alcohol markers on this.  The Happy Birthday Bubble is from Cloud Nine Stamp Set (this was a National Paper Crafting Month stamp).

We started working on my Craft Studio again, I didn't realize how hard this change would be.  So the boys will have about 3/4 of our basement for our HO train layout.  But I do like it in the corner out of the traffic going to the layout.

I made a "Thank You" card for my former Mother-in-law for a beautiful doily she made me when she came to my Granddaughter's First Birthday party we had for her at my house.

I used Close To My Heart's August Stamp of the Month What a Hoot (which you can get for only $5.00 with a purchase of $50.00), A True Thank You ($2.95), Lagoon Ink, ($5.95), I used the new ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers CTMH is carrying for my owl: BR116 Clay, B62 Marine Blue, BR99 Bronze, and R140 Light Orange, (each only $5.95).  I used Lagoon Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad ($5.95) to ink the edges of my card.  I used the "Dotty for You" retired paper for my background.  I stamped the thank you on white card stock using Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection ($99.00  Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection includes: 1 – Cartridge (700 images: font, shapes, and 3-D items)
3 – My Acrylix™ D-size stamp sets
