Happy Birthday Little Gal!

I purchased one of Kim Hughes stamp sets, Little Gal. OK, the truth? I purchased THREE of Kim Hughes stamp sets - I {heart} her whimsical designs! This little ice cream cone, "Let's Party" and the "Happy Birthday" (which is on the inside) all come from the Little Gal set.

I have soooo many Christmas card orders I'm working on, but our middle daughter has 2 birthday parties this weekend; one was actually last night (Friday). As I'm downstairs working away Thursday evening, I realize - oh...that party is tomorrow, better get a card made! Um yes, I think I've mentioned procrastination before? Yep, that's me!

I have a few pieces of left over paper from My Mind's Eye - I also had an order for some candles in a box in which I used the My Mind's Eye paper (click HERE to see a candle in a box), so I quickly reached for the great girly paper and set to work. It had to be quick ya know!

First I covered these two bottles; one is lotion, one is shower gel - both Strawberry scented - YUM! This particular little girl likes pink, so how could I go wrong with Strawberry scented items, right?

The ribbon is by Papertreyink, the flowers and brads were just ones I had on hand...I have quite a few things on hand. LOL

Then I went on to the ice cream cone card. The base is Purely Poppy also by Papertreyink, the floral paper is My Mind's Eye. I colored the center of each flower with a Clear Spica Glitter pen to give them a bit of shimmer, you can't see it in the picture, but it looks great IRL. BTW, I {heart} Papertreyink paper; it cuts just like BUH-TAH!

I stamped the ice cream cone on SU! Very Vanilla and colored with Copics; I also punched a scalloped circle from SU! Tempting Turquoise and Purely Poppy. I dotted each of the scallops with my SU! Chocolate Chip marker. I stamped the cherry onto a polka dot on the My Mind's Eye paper; cut it out, mounted with dimensionals and then added Crystal Effects for some yummy shimmer! The ribbon is actually from Ellen Hutson, she always includes ribbon when you place an order and it happens to match this Purely Pomegranate perfectly!

I love the whimsical lettering in Kim's sets; the "Let's Party" is just so cute!

Thanks for popping in; today I'm back to work on the Christmas cards and candles in a box; then I have another birthday card to make as the next party is tomorrow (Sunday)! Hope you have a great weekend!! Hugs, ~M.
