Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone,

Today I'm sharing a sweet little "10th" birthday card I made for my granddaughter.

I take monthly colouring classes at Kit and Clowder, and Alyce has some amazing sponsors who quite often give members on her facebook page, freebies.  The image and paper used on this card were both freebies.

I have several digital papers, kindly donated by Tracy Wray from Whimsy Stamps, and I chose a couple of them that went together.  (The kitten paper was special for Kit and Clowder's 15,000 FB fans Celebration and is SO cute.)

The "Marci" image was donated by LaLaLand and Alyce gave us a free class on how to colour her in honour of her 15,000 Celebration.  You can find the class here on Youtube.  Her classes are great fun and I'm learning SO many details that are making my colouring better!

Don't you just love the kitten peeking out at the bottom!  Tracy created the kitten paper special for Alyce at Kit and Clowder, because of her deep love for cats.  This particular cat stole MY heart because it looks just like my granddaughter's cat, Jimmy. 

After colouring Marci, I fussy cut her and layered her on the card with fun die cuts and flowers.  I will list them at the end of the post.

The inside of the card uses a special stamp set from CTMH that is only available this month.  You can see more details about it here.

I also thought I'd share a quick easy way I made an envelope to put this card into.  I recycled a piece of acrylic packaging by cutting off the top excess portion.

Added a pretty die cut bow... and Voila!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Colouring!
