Happy Birthday Sandie and Reverse Confetti May Color Challenge

cover


Yay it's Friday! Today is also Sandie from London Days birthday!
Nonni and Lynn are having a birthday linky party for you today and I am so thrilled to be participating in it for you.  You have always been such a sweet and supportive bloggie friend. I love how through the difficulties we both face we were able to connect last year. I hope that you have a fabulous birthday today and a wonderful year ahead my friend. I made a card for you using the these fabulous colours from the May Reverse Confetti Color Challenge.






 



I can't get enough of the new Let's Chill stamps and dies and got to work on my white popsicles with some ink blending.  I didn't have enough foam daubbers so I used triangular make up sponges. Starting from the bottom I inked in orange, then moved on to the dark pink then light pink.  I went back over where to colours met first with the darker shade and then the lighter shade.

I LOVE this! It was over 100 degrees here yesterday...in MAY! One of those really well blended popsicles would have been just what I needed! Love this card Tracey. Such a great idea to blend the colors with the popsicle images.

Our meeting in blogland was very special to me too. Times can be hard yet having crafting buddies like you sure helps and brings comfort. You are a special person and I thank you for my adorable cards...plus I love lollipops as we call them, especially cider flavoured ones!!
