Hoppy Birthday!

Yes, I know it is Thanksgiving tomorrow....followed shortly by Christmas, but people are still celebrating their birthdays right? ;) I created this card for the SRM blog using this adorable set by Jane's Doodles called, Garden Friends. I stamped the frogs in a light brown ink by Tim Holtz and water colored them using my Zig Clean Brush markers.

The eyes were given a generous coating of glossy accents. Once that was dry I added a drop of black puffy paint. I cut the image using a Spellbinder's rectangular scalloped die. While the die was still in place I sponged Tim Holtz ink in shades of green, yellow, and blue.  I stamped the sentiment in black and added a few more dots with the black puffy paint.

For a finishing touch I added pretty silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply Store. I love leaving the ribbon long and flowing....it's kind of my "thing" right now! ;) SRM Stickers Blog - Hoppy Birthday! by Michele - #card #janesdoodles #gardenfriends #watercolor #birthday

Thanks so much for stopping! I am off to the kitchen to start my Thanksgiving preparations! Have a lovely day!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve...Eve!

Good morning! 
I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today with a Thanksgiving card!
I have used products from some of my most favorite companies. 
The die cut leaves are from JustRite. They were water colored using my Zig Clean Brush Markers.  I gave them a coating of glossy accents and glitter. I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L's DODZ™ - Medium to adhere the leaves.

The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.  I adhered it across the leaves using Crafty Foam Tape. I tied black twine and a few sequins to finish off my card.

Today is my last day of work for the week! I am so glad too because my house is filthy and the laundry is piled high.  I am hosting Thanksgiving and have so much to do!  I am thinking I should dim the lights, put a few candles on and forget about the cleaning! LOL!
Have a great day my friends!
