Happy 29th (or 39th) BIrthday!





One of my friends celebrated her 39th birthday over the weekend. I made her this card. The plan was to put 39 scoops of ice cream on the front of the card. But, unfortunately they didn't fit!! So I decided to put 29 scoops on the front along with the saying "Happy 29th Birthday" and on the inside, I added another ice cream cone with 10 scoops and the saying says "Plus 10!" She really liked the card and had a pretty good birthday. It finally stopped raining here, after 4 days straight of nothing but rain. I think I see the sun coming out now! WooHoo! Hope you are having a great week!

I love all the cupcakes stacked up like that. What a terrific idea!
Thanks for visiting my blog! In answer to your question, I use Stampin Up markers to color my images. They were a little bit of learning curve. I found that if I stamped my image in Stazon and then colored it, starting with the lightest color of the shade I'm using and then going back and adding a darker shade fo the same color family around the edges and use my aqua painter to blend the colors, I get the best results. I will then add shadowing with my Sahara Sand marker (SU). I hope that was helpful! Have a great day!

Stampin hugs, Becky:)

P.S. I would love to add you to my blogroll. Would that be okay?
