Surprise Birthday Hop for Nancy McKinney!


SSS 111410

Today is TE’s Whimsical Wishes illustrator Nancy’s birthday and her good friend Saucy organized a little surprise birthday hop in her honor!   If you came to my blog from the talented Regina Mangum, you are on the right track!  If not, start at the beginning (Karen’s blog so you don’t miss out on all the eye candy!)

I made a card using the current TE Giving Tree Charity set called Make a Wish, in which a portion of the sale goes to the Make a Wish Foundation!  I used fellow Baker’s Dozen dt member Karen G’s Sweet Sunday Sketch 93 for my card, which I thought could showcase the fun banner in the set.  I used Cosmo Cricket Pixie-licious papers as well as some prismatic cardstock in addition to Choice Snow White.  I had fun coloring in the sentiment with copics, atyou spica glitter pens {on sale for $2.49 each!} and then layering on sparkle with star dust stickles!  I even colored my banner with aqua stickles.  I finished off my banner with a row of ruffled trim and a pixie-licious button!

Now hop on over to the beautiful & fabulously rockin’ stamper Alex Maldonado to see what she whipped up for Nancy! 

Nancy, I hope you have a fabulous birthday – I’m so happy to be working with your awesome images month after month!  They are just delightful!!
