Happy Birthday Shelly & Other Stuff :)

Today is my sister's birthday - we are one year and 3 days apart, a pair of proud Leos!  She made us pedicure appointments for this morning, then I'll take her out to lunch and we'll just spend a fun sister day together, something I treasure.  She bought me a beautiful Sweet Sister charm for my Pandora bracelet AND my very first Alex & Ani bracelet (the peace sign one, of course!)!  And she'll find out later today, but I bought her similar gifts.  hee hee  Happy Birthday, Shell, you are the best sister in the world and I love you so very much.  :)

Shell's Leo birthday card was made using the Zodiac Leo coloring page from Jade Dragon, along with a Leo ticket digi stamp from Stitchy Bear Stamps.  Papers are digi papers from Optic Illusions. 

It's also time for a new challenge at:

Dilly Beans:  Monochromatic

I would like to enter this into the:

The Cupboard Trilogy: Monochrome

I made a page in my mini art journal - the background is just a bunch of alcohol inks and spritzes/sprays that I let dry before adhering the image.  I also used lots of Stickles on her in varying shades of pink.  Head on over to the Dilly Beans challenge to play along!  :)

And last for today - we have a new challenge at:

Jellypark Challenge:  Cuddly Wuddly

I printed this adorable image on DP and then paper-pieced the balloon and highlighted the hearts & his scarf with Stickles.  Layered some coordinating DP for the background and tied a ribbon around it, pretty simple but cute - and he is certainly looking cuddly, is he not?  :)


  1. Your JP card is just darling! Love the DP, the design, and the monochromatic color palette! :^)
