Happy Birthday Miss Nicky

Good afternoon all,

Well I am in my fifth week home from work, stuck lying down after some health issues.  I'm having a miserable day today, and an I'm over it day - however the parcel post with new goodies that has just been delivered has managed to put a smile on my face for awhile.  I get to get my hands on my first two Saturated Canary stamps, and to say I am excited is an understatement!!!  Now I just have to wait for the rest of the stamps I have ordered to arrive ;o)

Anyway back to the task at hand.  Tomorrow is my friend Nicky's birthday, and as Nicky is a fellow scrapper I had to make sure it was a good card :o)  So knowing I was not going to be able to do much especially these last two weeks I have had this little one made up ready and waiting since just after Christmas.  I am really excited to be able to share her with you all.

From the Raising the Ceiling Collection I have used little Ladybug Tilda.  This was the second Magnolia stamp I ever owned, and I still love her just as dearly :o)  I love ladybugs as they are so bright and vibrant, and cute!!

Coloured with my Distress Reinkers in one of my favourite colours Barn Door with Black Soot for shading.  Her little dots are made using Onyx Pearl liquid pearls.

The little wooden ladybugs were a chance find at one of my local bargain stores, and work so well.  The background paper I made myself with Barn Door distress stain, my ladybug stamp from Kaszazz embossed in black and some Perfect Pearls Forever Red mist.  The Happy Birthday postmark sentiment is also courtesy of Kaszazz, and one of my favourites!

Last photo today is a close up shot of the gorgeous Wild Orchid Craft flowers I used to finish this card off beautifully, even if they did make it very difficult to fit it in an envelope ;o)

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Nicky and a year full of love, laughter, happiness and good health!!
