Show Me Your Birthday Cards! @ MelJens Designs

Happy Thursday everyone!! Tomorrow, Kevin and I head into Atlanta for his Biometrics appointment. I believe it is going in to get his fingerprints and photos. I believe that is all, but I'm not 100% sure. So, today is my last day of work this week Woot!! And we are on our way with the Immigration appointments! This one is our first and hopefully everything will go quickly and smoothly.

Okay... on to our challenge this week at Meljens Designs! This week is Challenge #154: Happy Birthday.

I used Meljen Designs - Birthday Cake Mouse --- How adorable is he!! I had fun coloring this image and I popped the top of the cake and the bottom frosting ring. I colored everything with Copic. I used some stickles - blue, green, purple and crystal. I also used some puff paint for some detailing. I used a small piece of blue lace and the papers are from Bo Bunny. I used two stamps - Happy Birthday on the front is from Jaded Blossom (Make A Wish) and the inside is from Creative Vision (Sassy Happy Birthday II). I also added some stitching on the front.

Its been a week!! I hope you all have had a good week!! Monday I had to work in a different building and away from my desk. It really is hard working away from your stuff! And the CIO kept me there late.. gotta love that on a Monday LOL  That's alright! At least it was over. Tuesday I spent catching up on everything that was left on my desk from Monday. It was a productive day, but I haven't been able to get much crafting done and that stinks! And then Wednesday -- I spent the day working and working some more... Oh! and working more!! LOL And then I got down to coloring and then it was time for bed. Oh how there are not enough hours in the day for me to play!! LOL I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!!!!

    Ooh how exciting Susan! I really hope the immigration process goes smooth for you. :D I have been told recently that my own immigration in Sweden was ridiculous unusually fast. So I have a feeling, most people go through a bit of what you have so far even here. I'm totally crossing my fingers so that you can get it all fixed up. :D

    Now on to that amazing card! LOVE it! The cake, the colors, the papers!! <3 <3

    This card is a page of frisky fun. It does remind me of the first time I had to distress new paper. The layers, to me, show how much time and energy went into this art.
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful artwork with us this week.
