Rosie with Cake For Cousin Vi’s Birthday!

by Myrna Irwin

First of all I want everyone to know that Love to Stamp is sponsoring the Fussy and Fancy Challenge tomorrow the 20th of May. So go play!!

I’m so excited I just received my Cheery Lynn order of dies today! I can’t wait to cut them and see what they look like. The awesome fence and gate, screen door, (just love it for some reason) and a few others. For some reason I want to call them Cherry Lynn. So if I slip up I mean Cheery Lynn. LOL!

Where does the time go??? Here it is another year and another birthday for cousin Vi! Last year she put her card on an easel in her living room. It was peach and aqua. She has a red living room. This year I tried to keep that in mind when I did her card. So it’s “PINK”! I did my orange for myself the other day so I’m good to go. For some reason the LOTV girls just scream “pink”. I really had fun with this card.

I bought all this NitWit paper and had never tried it. Ok, not to bad to print your own paper. I didn’t do the matching solids as they had words on it. Well, duh most of it was covered except for a 1/8″ border. Live and learn. Still trying to live with about zilch for hearing in my left ear. It really makes me feel disconnected with life.

Here’s my cutie!

  1. Great card, Myrna. You did another fantastic job with the coloring and I love the shoes and ribbon in her hair. The flowers and ribbon are great additions to the card, as well.

  2. Awesome card!!! Makes me think of Mady when she’ll be older:) Awesome coloring and designing of this card…..keep ’em coming!!!

    Love, Andrew

  3. You can do “pink” beautifully. The pink flowers and green ribbon really set the card off. The coloring is great, also.

  4. Gorgeous work Myrna! Love your layout and papers! This is the cutest image from LOTV – I have a long list of stamps I want from there! Beautiful coloring as always! hugs, Angela

  5. This is just adorable Myrna – I love this LOTV image and what great colours and papers you used. The flowers are so pretty. I better check out those Cherry (!!) Lynn dies then ;o)
