Yee Ha! ... and ... Happy Birthday DD !!!

Good morning!

Before I show you my card for today, I want to wish our beautiful daughter a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! She is 29 years young today! Guess that makes it hard for ME to be 29!!! Lol... If you get a chance drop by her blog and wish her a Happy Birthday - thanks!

Today's card is using an Inky Impressions stamped image that my dear friend, Crystal sent me some time ago. The challenge at Inky Impressions is to use pink (Kim, you reading???), and hearts on our projects. I thought this lil' cowgirl Lili could meet that criteria!

Colored with Koh-I-Noor Pencils and blended with low odor mineral spirits - Great twines came from O'Dear's, our LSS - added a few Stickles dots here and there!

I am also entering this here:

Belli Challenge #83 - use hearts

Crazy 4 Challenges - Design card/project with a Pink Theme

Lexi's Creations - Valentine

I'm sure there are other challenges out there, but I must get back to my paperwork in the office, so maybe next week!!!

Have a wonderful day - it's closing in on a weekend!

Patti J.

Food for thought: A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.


  1. WOW, Patti! I LOVE this card! What a creative touch that was to add the "rope"! Sorry,I haven't been by to visit lately. Too much "drama" going on. Thank goodness I have some big projects to work on, and an indulgent Hubby!
