Birthday Card For Linda

The beginning of June has a lot of birthdays in my family and for friends too. I was late for both that I sent cards to. I’m very good at procrastination. 😦 It really got me moving when we received a card from Linda on the day that was her birthday! We ALL loved the card. A beautiful card with Tim Holtz’s large butterfly on it! We’re hanging on to hope by our fingertips. So thank you Linda for the encouragement. Know that it was appreciated! It’s sitting on the mantle.

Here’s Linda’s Birthday card.

Linda's B-day

I really had fun making this card. They color up so quickly. As usual it takes longer to decide how to finish the card. I have to say this is the first card I ever tore totally apart and redid. I liked it 100% better so I’m glad I did it.

  • Stamps:  sm Birthday Blueprints Set – Stampers Anonymous/lg distressed background – Stampin’ Up
  • Copics:
  • R32 R35 R37 R39 R59 B32 B34 B37 B39 YR02 YR08 YR17

I have another card I’ll be working on this week. It only took Drew and I all day Saturday to get it figured out how to make a JPEG a PNG. All the directions we found on-line would work up to a certain point. Finally, figured out I had to color the transparent part in by hand. Not fun! It was an old image before companies sent a PNG & JPEG or just a PNG. Time will tell how it will look colored up. I’m pretty excited to see how it does.

As always thank you for looking and leaving a little love for me.

Have a great week everyone!
