Big Birthdays!

Pin It
Welcome to the a la mode teaser for this week's My Favorite Things release! This is Big Birthday Wishes....isn't she great with her balloons. I stamped her on X-press it paper and colored her up with my copic markers. I, then, CHOPPED her up with my paper cutter and made each chop a little irregular and then just pieced her back together on the card.

And then there is the "40"!!!! Yup, a trio of us girls turned 40 in the last few months and this is for the youngest of our crew. I used the By The Numbers Die-namics and cut them from my patterned papers.

A little touch of twine and an MFT button.....voila!
