Cool Blue!

Mercy, I love this card! Seems like forever since I was able to stamp. Busy with the holidays and Gabi's birthday. We were able to give her a very memorable 10 year birthday. Not only did she get to do a night at the Great Wolf Lodge, we took her to American Girl and Bistro for a birthday shopping trip. She loved it and went crazy in there. She was able to pick out a new doll, and got Elizabeth. The place is so cute, both dolls ate at the table with us! Such a fun day for us to share together.
Amazing how quickly life gets sometimes, as I can't believe I haven't been on here since last week! I was able to squeeze in quite a few challenges on this card! And man, does it look great because of it! I love playing along with the challenges, and am so thankful that so many talented people put them on line for me to play along! I snatched this Greeting Farm set at Rachel's Store when she was having a fun Cyber Monday sale. Grabbed a few more Greeting Farm stamps from her while I was there. I popped out the hand muff, the cuffs of her boots, and cut and glue the ear muffs down. They looked weird popped out. The glitter part is made out of white fun flock, and green glitter.

Here's my challenges:

Pile It On: Flowers and Flourishes.

JUGS-Sketch.

Cute Card Thursday-Swirly Girly!

La La Land-Buttons.

Cupcake Inspiration Challenge-The cool blue and the snowflakes were part of my inspiration.

Pink Elephant-Favorite Coloring Medium-Copics.

Ooh La La-Child's Card. My 10 year old daughter loves this image, and all the bling! This will go to her 10 year old friend for Christmas.

Farm Fresh Friday-Color Combo-Baja Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and White.

Gotta show off my kid for a moment too. She created a card for her friend whose party was today. Sadly, the little girl fell at the skating rink, broke her leg and ankle in the fall. Right as the party was getting started. So, the poor thing left to the hospital, came back right before it eneded to open some gifts, and say bye to her guest. I felt so badly for her. Than my sweet kid wanted to come home and make her a get better card! I'm guessing we'll work on that tomorrow. I helped color the skin on her card, and helped glue it down.

Supplies: Copics, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, stickles, Martha glittler, SU cardstock-choco chip, baja breeze, choco chip ink, Greeting Farm stamp, nesties, CB folder, fun flock

Gabi's-Raspberry Fizz paper, and ink, Copics, DCWV Sweet stack, Greeting Farm, stickles, nesties,

Sounds like Gabi had a great birthday! Your card is adorable - I especially love the green glitter and white flock idea. Too cool!! Gabi's card is adorable - she did a super job! I feel bad for the little girl breaking her leg - not fun! Makes me a little nervous about sending abby - she's a little clumsy!

Anna, the cards that you and Little Miss G made are adorable! How exciting that you were able to go to the American Girl store and have lunch w/ G. & her new doll. You will both remember that special day forever. I'm sorry to hear about her friend falling and breaking her leg & ankle.
