Yay!! That's Krafty Thursday's are back!! I SO love my Kraft paper!! Today is kind of a double occasion... it's That's Krafty Thursday but it's also my cousin Debbie's 50th birthday!!! And this is her birthday card. You're probably wondering why I didn't do something making fun of her age (which is SO me) but she's pretty UNHAPPY about the whole thing so I thought I'd better not rub it in. So I decided to harass her in a different way. She HATES flamingos!! ROFL!!! I ordered this stamp just for her birthday way back during the Fall sometime. I couldn't wait to ink it up in her honor!! Bwah-ha-ha-ha! I even went to a tourist store here in Florida and found her a flamingo bookmark to put inside too! Everybody needs a cousin like me, huh?
I stamped the image onto some Classic Crest CS and colored with my Copics. I added some Stickles to the sun and some Crystal Effects to her sunglasses. I matted the image onto some pink CS from my stash and stitched around the edges. I used my Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics stamp and embossed some pink polka dots onto the SU Kraft card base. I just LOVE this DP from Bella Blvd, with it's bright and cheery colors. I matted the DP with the same pink CS and used my SU scalloped border punch along the bottom edge. I tied on this polka dot ribbon from Stampin Up and that finishes up my card for today. Now That's Krafty! Happy 50th Birthday Debbie!! Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Have a great Thursday!
I've been a crafter all my life but finally found an outlet for my passion for paper about 9 years ago and I've been stamping ever since! I'm married to the most WONDERFUL man in the whole wide world, and we've just recently become grandparents to our SWEET grandson Jaxon! I work full time but hide out in my COOP (stamp room) every chance I get! I LOVE this hobby of mine, and sharing my creations with you here in the HEN HOUSE. I hope you enjoy your visit! Awwwk!
