Here's my project I have to share with you today:
I made this birthday card for a little girl in my Sunday School class who will be 7 the end of this month. She wears rainbow sandals- with socks- every Sunday and I thought of those shoes when I made this card. She always takes her socks and shoes off as soon as she gets in class so all the other kids want to do the same thing. Some of them remember what their parents told them and don't take their shoes off. I teach 3-7 year olds or Pre-K-1st Grade. Now that I have the story behind this card out of the way, let's get back to my card! I cut down a sheet from K&Company Que Sera Sera Designer 12 x 12 Paper Pad and glued it down with Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue Pen onto Recollections A2 Card Base. I stamped Happy Birthday from Stampin' Up Remembering Your Birthday collection using Versa Fine Onyx Black Pigment Ink onto a piece that I fussy cut with decorative scissors from the same sheet of designer paper. I wanted to make the sentiment stand out a little from the card, but didn't have any adhesive squares so I had to improvise Luckily when I made this card I was at my crop in the kitchen of my church building and knew there's a teacher's closet upstairs that may have some foam squares or some sort of foam. No luck, so I went to look in my classroom and found some foam paper pieces. I found a pair of scissors and cut off a small rectangle. I went back downstairs to the kitchen and cut 3 little squares from the foam rectangle. I borrowed my friend's, Aleene's Original Tacky Glue to adhere the squares to the paper and the card. The tacky glue I found in the teacher's closet was dried up. I wasn't giving up!! :) I added an American Crafts Crate Paper After Dark Adhesive Enamel Gold Dot to the butterfly to give it some bling. Now for the inside:
 The cupcake stamp is Studio G Pinklight Design that I stamped on typing paper again with Versa Fine Onyx Black Pigment Ink and then colored it with 80s Glam Sharpies and then I cut it out and glued it down with the same Tombow Aqua glue pen. The sentiment stamp- today calls for something pink with sprinkles on top- is also from the same Stampin' Up birthday collection and I used Versa Fine ink again. I will write a note on the card before I give it to her. She's supposed to have a party at the local skating rink and if I go I'll give her this card with a gift. That's all I have to share with you. I would love for you to become a follower of my blog if you're not already!
Up next is my friend, CONNIE and I'm sure she has something awesome to share with you!
