Happy Birthday!

 A pair of earrings I made for my sister's birthday. It is next week but she doesn't know to check my blog so she won't see them! Now to get busy and make a card. We're off in a couple weeks to celebrate her birthday, her son in law's and my lovely eldest daughter. We all spending a weekend in Big Bear. I can't wait.

Quick Thank You Card

Of course I waited until the last minute....literally the night before to make a thank you card for my brother in law. It is always hard for me to come up with "masculine" cards. Not sure this is but I know I could have made it a lot more "girly" and didn't.

I used Tim Holtz's Birdcage die and colored it with Viva Decor's Ferro. Love the texture of this stuff. The bird and crown are painted with Viva Decor's Precious Metal paint. Another great Viva product. The background was one of Tim's techniques. Using an embossing folder on his sticky back foil and then coloring with alcohol inks and grunging it up with sand paper.
