Monday, December 6, 2010

Good Monday morning – yes it is Oldie Moldie Monday. Time to show some love to some paper that has become well aged.

Amongst the holiday preparations – I have birthdays to celebrate also. I have a card to make this week for my niece Molly – I have the image and paper picked out – now color the image and make the card. Both my son in laws have December birthdays – but they usually get their cards late.

This card today is for one of my Ya Ya’s - my special group of friends –after we lost Shari this last year to breast cancer – has made our friendships even more important. Bert is the third Ya Ya to turn 60 – I will turn 60 next – but that is not until May. The other two are younger by several years so we won’t have to celebrate any more 60th birthday for a few years. Moxie Fab World is also celebrating their new magazine - Card Creations - and have a birthday challenge. This card fits perfectly into that challenge.

This image is from I Brake for Digis. I thought the chicken was hilarious wearing her little party hat. Add a touch of bling to her hat tassel and she is ready to party. If you want to purchase this lovely young chick – just pop over to I Brake for Digis. Remember if you decide to shop, you can use this coupon code SAVE10BARB to receive a discount. Everyone loves a savings and digis are so reasonable. $10 might buy one rubber stamp but you could get at least 3 digi stamps for that price and if you figure all the different sizes you can print the images in – you have a wonderful bargain.

I had to have this paper pad – and I think this is only the second card I have made out of it. It has glitter on it so I can’t use it for Operation Write Home cards. I love the colors so I don’t know why I have not created with it. Of course, I have quite the collection of 6 x 6 or 8 x 8 pads, so there is always something new to create with and the old paper gets forgotten.

Well I must go and get ready for work. Everyone enjoy your Monday.

Paper: My Mind's Eye
