Happy Birthday Heather!

Hiya Stampin' Friends!! Is everyone super-busy this day before Thanksgiving? I know I am, and as you're reading this I'm probably headed down to my mom's (2 hrs south of me) for a few days. I finished 5 of my Xmas trees and all my other decorations (except outside) are done & I'm exhausted--whoooosh! Saturday we'll go to the Xmas Tree farm and get our 2 real trees and Sunday the outside decorations will get done (please let the weather cooperate)! My holiday luncheon is next Tuesday and I have a loooong list of stuff left to do, ahhhh!!
Alrighty, onto my cards for the day...


My first card today is a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEATHER"!!! Hope your day is super special & fun! Heather Rolin is the WONDERFULLY KIND owner/illustrator for H&M Stamps and the DT is having a BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP for her. So if you're just stopping here & want to start at the beginning to see all the birthday projects you need to start with Carolina; if you want to see who's next in line then visit Tracy! Don't forget to stop by Heather's blog and give her some big Birthday Hugz!!

My card uses the H&M stamp set "My Favorite Valentine"--I think this puppy image is sooo adorable and I love to make my stamp sets versatile & the images in this set work for more than just one occasion. The dp is Basic Grey's "Cupcake", colored with Copics, stickles for accents and the sentiment is from PTI's "B&C Mongram Edition" that I bent on my acrylic block to fit the circle.


My second card I really have to put down in my all-time favorites (YILM, lol)--I love this image from Magnolia-licious called "Tilda w/ Hood"(she's on sale right now too)! The holiday coats on the Tilda's for their winter 2008 collection are just to die for--so cute & elegant. And I lovee these colors together, fun & dramatic all at once! I based my colors on this to-die for dp from Dovecraft (this is Hint of Pink). Have ya heard of them? No, well they're based over in the UK and no one carries them here in the US---well, until now that is, lol! Susana from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design has many of their design packs in stock and will be ready for purchase come this MONDAY and I tell ya the papers are delish & soooo fun! And the best part is no one else has it right now, so ya need to get some fast for sure! I colored w/ Copics and used Glitz Stickles on her fur trim. The snow is made with liquid applique which I applied after sponging on some lt. pink ink around her. The flowers are Petaloo's and the sentiment is from PTI's "Mailbox Greetings".
I hope ya liked everything today and I wish you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving Holiday! I'll see ya back here on Saturday!
hugz,
Suzanne
