One more candle

Hello Happy Crafters!  How is your week going?  For everyone in the US are you ready for your 3 day weekend? I love when the holidays fall on a Monday or a Friday! Do you have any special plans?  Two grandsons Tyler 13, and Travis 9 will be here Sunday. My daughter, Amy is bringing them to the house along with Abbie, 5 and Adrew 3. On Monday we will be in Annapolis on a harbor cruise to watch the fireworks!! I am so excited for it's going to be beautiful! The boys will stay with us until Friday when we drive to Ohio to meet their other grandparents. Busy week ahead!

My card today with another Bugaboo image! Maybe I should try out for their DT!! This is Stella and Stella has a comment for everything!  A customer of mine picked this image for me to make her best friend a birthday card! Sure hope she likes it!! I was torn over how to design it. I still added my ribbon and glitz just not a lot.

  • Copics: Skin: E15, E21, E02, Hair: E97, E99, E17, E29. Shirt and Hat: BV: 13, BV11, BV000. Cake: #53, E51, E50. Table: BG15, BG 13, BG10. Top of cake: E19, E11, R02.
  • Bow: Stash made with my Bow Easy.  Bow Easy tutorial by Suzanne Dean
  • Flowers: Prisma
  • Magic mesh:  Self Adhesive weave, baby blue.  I love, love this stuff!
Tip of the day: Mounting Red Rubber Stamps. Do you buy red rubber stamps? Or, do you not buy them because, you do not want to cut the sticky, tacky cling foam mount to adhere them to?  Well, no more! I found this product "Tack N Peel" and I think it is the best thing develop for non mounted rubber stamps.. 
Tack N' Peel clear sheet is a unique, reusable product designed for creating a stamping block and you can use it over and over again.  Here explains it much better! I love, love it and will never mount a red rubber stamp again. When it loses it's ability to stick...rinse with water and it's like brand new again. Easy peasy my friends!

Digi images! Do you love digi's?  I love you don't have to worry about stamping.   I use less paper for I am not the best stamper in the world!! Free Digi's! Anne Fenton and Sandi Hugget offer free digi's at The Outlawz Challenge site!
