Birthday card!


I decided to make another tent topper card! I just think they are the cutest! I had stamped some images from my MIL's Pretty Princess SU! set on glossy white. I colored in the birthday cake in with my Copic markers. I used my Marvy punches and some Doodlebug sequins for the "topper." I Cuttlebugged the background paper with the birthday template. I sewed the paper without thread to give it the pierced look without all the work!!! The happy birthday sentiment is by Savvystamps.








My kids had a great time in Michigan! They swam and rode the tube behind the boat....or as Cortney likes to call it...."big bump!" And yes, that is me in the tube with Cortney!

Wow! I wish I could have got on that tube! This card is very cute! What do they call those...Tent Toppers? I've been meaning to try one and haven't yet.
We missed you yesterday! Your MIL probably already told you but I left a little baggie of images for you.

I love how fun & colorful your card is! And it looks like you were able to have MUCH more fun in the water than we did in MI - we were wimps, Lake Huron was WAY too cold!
