Happy Birthday Aletha, This is for you!



Aletha’s Birthday blog roll:
KristyLee <<<ME

Aletha<<<<Birthday Girl!
Good morning, today starts a 2 day blog hop for a very special person, Aletha! Sunday is her Birthday but we wanted to give everyone time to hop to all of the blogs to see the Happy Birthday cards made for Aletha’s Birthday. We have also sent a bouquet of flowers to Aletha’s home, here is a picture of them:
We also sent her a Happy Birthday balloon with them.
Here is the Birthday card I made for Aletha!
I used a digi curtsy of Smeared Ink. The digi set is called “Chicks Dig Guns”  (Follow the link to get yours)
I colored my image with Copic markers. I added Stickles to her dress, shoes, and feather. Added a half pearl on the feather. The black bling I bought on a roll at Micheal’s from Recollections. Ribbon from stash. The black flower, leaf, and green swirl was gifted to me as a SS gift from Lisa. The reason I used the green swirl was, I was imagining it as an extension of the flower and leaf. I hope she likes it. For the inside of the card, in PSE10 I typed “Hope your Birthday is a Bang” on top of the bullet holes, (Also a digi from that set.)
Well there you have it! Happy Birthday Aletha!
We have put on a blog hop, please hop to all of the other bloggers to see what they came up with for Aletha. At the end of the blog roll is a link to Aletha’s blog PLEASE stop by there and wish her a Happy Birthday. She will be so surprised! We have not told her about this yet!!!
Just for hopping today, Tracey  (owner/artist) of The Stamping Boutique has donated a free digi from her store for you! All you have to do is “right click and save as” to your computer! The name of this is “The Fairy Aletha Digital Stamp” Enjoy!  Once this 2 day hop is over she will be gone, but you can always visit TSB’s store for this digi or more!
This digi stamp can be found at The Stamping Boutique’s store.
I made Aletha an ATC, this is her favorite stamp from TSB:
I colored this with Copic markers, I colored her hair with Prismacolor pencils. I printed out 2 of these images then cut out the wings and popped it up with pop dots. Then I sprayed it with “Goosebumps” spray. Goosebumps spray leaves a bumpy, shiny, and sparkly texture. Plus it acts as a sealer. (I just love this stuff.)
Please enjoy your hop, and visit everyone on the list. I have the blog roll posted on my side bar also, just encase you get lost on your way,  you can always come back here to see the list.
If you are not a follower of my blog and you would like to be, my follow button is by email, and it is located right under Aletha’s blog roll! Thank you.
Thank you for stopping by and helping me wish Aletha a wonderful birthday!! Thank you for your comments too!

I made this card for no particular reason other then I thought these two digi stamps would look good together.

This is an easel card. The “Vintage tub Digital Tub” is from The Stamping Boutique. I colored it w/ Prismacolor pencils & baby oil & added yellow Stickles and white Tulip puffy paint.

The sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations. Paulette is a wonderful person she’s always giving away freebies! She has some freebies now and some really cool looking digi papers too. I matted it on Stampin’ Up’s Pink Pirouette CS and Crushed Curry CS, then out lined it in pink & gold Stickles.  DSP is K&Company “Pink Posey Specialty Pack “.

Thank you for taking the time to look, and to leave me a comment of what you think.

Can you believe it’s New Year’s Eve???



Happy New Year!
