Happy Birthday Daughter O'Mine!

It's my daughter's birthday. Sadly, her birthday seems to keep falling on "Reading" weekend, so the poor thing has to spend the day studying. Such is the life of "the Sophomore".

I sent her this card, which contained three gift cards, to brighten her day. I know she'll like the gift cards and hope she likes the card, which features Stanley the penguin from the Waddle I Do set and a balloon from the Owl Celebrations set. Both sets are from Sassy & Sweet Stamps. The images were colored with Copic markers. Stanley is standing on some Stickles "snow". The balloon is coated with a layer of Glossy Accents. The balloon string was outlined with Glaze Pen to add some dimension to it. The sentiment is from Savvy Stamps (I think). I love that little script font!

I wanted the card to be bright and cheerful, so I used some old, but seriously bright patterned paper from my stash. I don't even recall who makes it.

Anyways, Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Oh how fun! Love the dots of color on the back and the way you made the penguin hold the balloon! :) SOOO fun! Hope your daughter had a lovely birthday!

  2. Hi Kathi!
    Waving madly!

    Just wanted to stop by. Great card there. Love that penguin.

    And happy birthday to your DH.
