Birthday Bulldog

Good morning my crafty friends.

I wanted to share this card I made last night.  My husband's birthday is coming up at the end of the month, so I decided to get it going.

The happy birthday digi and the bulldog digi are from Meljen's Designs.  I just merged both images together using Microsoft Word.  Meljen's has a great tutorial on how to do this!!  
I also used the same Happy Birthday image to make my custom made background paper.  I absolutely love it!!! There is also a tutorial on how to make that over at Meljen's.

I used MS glitter on the sentiment, swirls and stars.  
The rest I colored using Copics.

This sentiment is computer generated and cut using a ticket die.

Hope you guys like it and hopefully I have inspired you to try some new techniques using your digis and computers.  Very easy tutorials, so check them out!!

Happy Birthday Sis!

Happy Friday Everyone!  I am so looking forward to this weekend!! Any fun plans out there?

I wanted to give a big SHOUT OUT to my lit' sis, who has a Birthday Today.....

For her birthday, I made her a Hello Kitty birthday card.  As a child, she absolutely adored Hello Kitty.  So, what better than to bring back some fond memories for  her.  Plus, I also wanted to try and make a tent card to enter into the Crafty Sprouts Challenge.  I had never made one before, so I was excited to try it out. Erika has a great tutorial on her blog, so if you want to learn how and enter her challenge, just go on over to Crafty Sprouts.

Thank You!

Hey Everyone!  I hope you are all doing great tonight.
I have a little card I made tonight for a few challenges.  I've had the Camping Critters cart for a while now and had never used it.  I was really excited to open it up tonight.  Hope you like it!!

Skunk: Campin'Critters
Sun: Simply Charmed
Waves: Life is a Beach
Thank you: Inkadinkado-Happy Everything stamps

I used heat embossing for the sentiment.  As you can see I still need more practice.  I always seem to get tiny lit' spots everywhere.  I used the dryer sheet, but it doesn't work for me.  So if anyone has some advice, I would so love to hear it!!!
