Birthday Love*

Good morning... Happy Monday and last day of the month! Yesterday was my lazy Sunday. We spent the morning watching the Moto 2 and then the MotoGP races. My favorite, Marquez, crashed out again. So frustrating - He is a good rider! After that I went to have lunch with my hubby. After that it was time to come back home. I spent the day coloring and have the next image all layered. I just need to create the card. I'm hoping I can work on that tonight. We will see :)  We watched the Indy Car final race yesterday afternoon/evening. Then Michael called and I ran to pick him up from work. When I got home we turned on the Moto 3 race that he hadn't watched yet and started to watch that. I love the Moto Races! I just wish we had some Americans in it.. we have one, but he is never at the top. I do have my favorites though :)  Fun racing! And yesterday was wet racing too!  Alright... time for me to head off to work now. I hope you all have a great week! Next Monday is a US holiday, Labor Day.. AND .. my father-in-law heads back to Australia next Monday too. He has been with us for two months. It has been really good to get to know him :)

I managed to post one card every day this month! That will most probably NEVER happen again!! HAHA! This is the last card I have finished. We will see if I can finish that one tonight. So here is my card for today!

For this one I used a Tiddly Inks image - Close To My Heart. I colored this image with Copic markers. I did a small amount of layering with only layering the heart, arms and wings. The heart easel was cut using my Cameo Silhouette. I added a few swirls that are Sizzix. The tags are Sizzix. The small hearts were  punched and I added gems to them. I also added a few gems to the tags. The tags were put onto the card with a green sparkly brad. I did add a small amount of black ink to the Turquoise swirls. All of the papers are scraps except for the green paper that I cut the card base from. That was bought from Michaels.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
  • Hair: BG000, BG53, BG57
  • Dress and Socks: G40, G43, YG63, G28
  • Wings: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR24
  • Heart and Circle on Shoes: R20, R22, R24

Love this gorgeous bit of creativity. The heart shaped easel card inspires me to use shapes more often, and your fabulous photos of all the different layers on your card make me feel like a lazy crafter! LOL
