Sophie's Card

Happy Wednesday Everyone,

Well we did it -- we reached 100 followers.  As promised I will be holding a new giveaway starting on Monday.  It once again involves on of my favorite things!  What could it be?  mmmmmmmmmmm You will have to wait and see on Monday!

I don't know about you, but the week is just marching on.  I love it!  Thankfully it has also been a really quiet week too.  I have been picking the boys up right after school and getting them home and then I have been working out in the basement with them there.  Jack is my helper and tries to keep Michael from getting too close to the machines.  I love being able to work out with them there.  I can still talk to them and just "BE" with them!! That is one of the reasons why I hate going to the gym etc because I have to be away from the kids.  Now I have the best of both worlds.

My  Goddaughter Sophie looks forward to my birthday cards that I send her.  Her mom always tells me that Sophie looks forward to my cards so I like to spend a little extra time on them.  So for this one I broke out all my Hero Arts stamps along with my copics. 

1.  First I stamped a 4x4 card with the background stamp using the Hero Arts chalk ink.
2. Next I punched the scalloped circle and circle (on neenah solar white).
3.  I stamped the image of the girl and colored her with Copic markers.
4. I then made a mask of the little girl and placed it over her.
5.  Next I stamped the sky and grass (again using my Hero Arts stamps)
6.  Next I stamped and cut out the message bubble and then added the Hi
7.  On the inside I stamped the greeting Happy Birthday

Hero Arts, memento, copic

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow with a new layout!

I can see why she looks forward to your cards, they are awesome.
I have never had a membership at a gym. I have alway worked out at home. I signed up for these pilates because they are only 10.00 for the week as many classes as you want :)
