Happy Bee-Day


  We have a slew of Birthdays in my family at the end of Feb. and all throughout March.  In fact, my older sister was born 3/9, next year a brother 3/4, next year another brother 3/9 (again)...and I came a year later....in April.....Whew!  Did I mention my sister has a birthday at the end of Feb.?  Dad is in March too- we either have quarterly birthdays or eat alot of cake- that is our March dilemma!!!
  I used a digi image from Designed 2 Delight to make my first Birthday card for my younger sister- I made it early, so I had better not forget to mail it on time.......
  I used SU in-color Melon Mamba to color the scallops on the cake, and Pretty in Pink Flowers with rhinestone centers.  The bee's are colored in Barely Banana and shimmerz painted on the wings. I painted Silver shimmers on the platter as well. There is a touch of Barely banana ink on the candle tops and a dot of shimmers over that- does not show well in this photo.  (I get my shimmerz at Firecracker Designs By Pamela).
  I used Nestabilities for the sentiment. I tried Whisped Frames from the new TJ newsletter, but flubbed it up....but I am not totally unhappy with the card.

  My entire computer crashed this week- last week it was the e-mail....My husband got my computer running, but it is bare minimum- no Word or anything....... I have lost all of my e-mail contacts and all of my photo's- I had all of my digi images in my photo files.  Well, I now own a Flash drive!  Woo Hoo!

Thanks for stopping by!
