Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

We Prettie Girls have lots of birthdays, don't we?!! LOL! Well today is an extra special day too - it's Mother's Day!! A very happy day to all my friends out there reading today as well as my amazing Mom, my wonderful mother-in-law and my sil Heidi! Hope you all have the very best day!

But, guess what? It's also Christi Thorsen's birthday (and coincidentally my brother's but I'll make him a different card!)!! If you didn't start on Christie's blog, please go there so that you can enjoy all the Prettie cards!

My card for Christi uses the June Stamp of the Month, Give Thanks Sophia. I think she is just so darling and since Christi is super sweet . . . perfect! :) I used Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #67 for the sketch - great sketch!!

I was so tired when I sat down to make this card that I wasn't expecting much but I know a lot of you will agree with me that crafting and especially coloring can be so relaxing and almost therapuetic. I found myself thoroughly enjoying the making of this card! I colored Sophia with Copic markers. Her dress was done with Y21 (a must-have color!). I then used my Colorless Blender to make the little flowers, just 4 dots with the tip of the marker. The color gets pushed away and leaves a flower. I went back with my Y21 and darkened the center of the flower.

I thought the card was done until I realized it didn't say "happy birthday"! So I stamped the sentiment repeatedly on a scrap of dp and then used my Cuttlebug flower die (and Swiss Dot embossing folder) to make a little Happy Birthday Flower. I'm still not sure if I liked it better before or not . . . .

Your next hop is over to Jessica's blog for more Prettie birthday wishes. At the end you'll be at Christi's blog so you can wish her a happy day! :)

Cardstock: White (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper: Chatterbox, Stamps: Giving Thanks (Paper Pretties), sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Pumpkin Pie (SU!), Accessories: ribbon (SU!), Copic Markers, Brad (Target), Gems (??), Corner Rounder punch
