A SUPRISE PARTY!!!



Smiley from millan.net


It was our very own America's birthday yesterday 4th July and this is a suprise party we are throwing for her - she knows nothing about it as has been on the road with her family travelling across America to a home. She thinks it's a totally different challenge altogether but she does have internet connection so imagine her suprise when she logs in to this week's challenge!!!

Well SUPRISE, SUPRISE my lovely, adorable friend this is especially for you!!!

 I do hope you'll all join in and create a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" card or project.
And we have prize donated by our own fantastic SUE D of the fabulous image 'Wishing Well'


I was - for obvious reason going to use Red, White and Blue colours, then changed my mind and opted for peach and brown. The backing papers are from Donna's Bearly Mine Designs Extreme Vol III. The image is 'Beary nice song' and coloured in Copic markers. I searched the web to find sheet music for Happy Birthday, reduced it, inked the edges and sat it at an angle beneath the image. I also found some musical notes, for Gruffie to 'play'. The letters spelling America's name are from Stampendous Classic Bold Alphabet, the ribbon flowers and pearls are all from my stash.

Just a quick posting as I have to rush out, I would have left a list of Copics used had I not lost it again - ooops!!

Beautiful birthday card Heather. I love Gruffies, they are so cute and funny. Love the collage feel also.

I wanted to add that the colouring in the post before is drop dead gorgeous. Very talented lady with minute tips for the very non-talented lady I am for colouring....wow!

Kindly, Peggy
