Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday to You!

I got an email a little while back from Julie Masse over at Paper Pretties. The email was to let us know that May 1st was Christie's birthday. So, I got hoppin' on a card. I actually started out with a sketch, but my card ended up looking nothing like it. That is often the case with me and sketches!

The stamp set that I chose is from CTMH. It is a really fun set....with four different shoes and 'pocketbooks' (known as purses where I come from!). This sexy, slinky dress is the main image in the set. I used red ink...ColorBox Chianti, to be exact. It is nice that the images are solid ones, alleviating the need to colour them in!

The papers are from K&Company...the K-ology line. The flower came in the same kit as the papers. It is one of those kits that has been in my stash since forever! I decided that with Christie's birthday on the horizon, the time had come to cut into it!

I can finally post this card....since Christie should have received it by now....although, I have to say that my mail to Canada seems to be taking longer recently....

Oh well, happy birthday Christie! I hope you are enjoying your cruise!
