Cheesecake Party?


You may not have noticed this, but I seem to inadvertently post my least favorite cards on Tuesdays. For some reason Denise and I were talking about our tankers a while back, and "Tanker Tuesday" came up in conversation. I guess it just stuck in my subconscious! LOL!

I soooooo didn't want this card to be * a tanker*! It's a birthday card for a very dear friend of mine...and her birthday is today. Sadly ,sometimes the MOJO just doesn't cooperate with our own schedules, dang it!

The stamp I used (and LOVE) is Penny Black's Cheesecake Party . Isn't it adorable???


I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and blended with a damp paint brush.

The designer paper is My Mind's Eye Penny Lane collection called Tiny Dancer . The cardstock is Island Mist Prismatics and Crabapple Prismatics .

Happy Birthday Laurie ! I love ya, and I'm thinking of you! Your card (and a nice surprise) will be in your mailbox when you get home!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by today.
