Happy Birthday!

Wow Look at me!  Two posts in two days!  lol.

Hope you are doing well today.  Today I want to show you a Birthday card that I made on the weekend while my BFF was over and we were playing in my Pink Palace.

The image I used on this card is one of my newest stamp purchases and I could not wait to get to work on a card using one of the sweet girls that come in this set.  The set is called Sugar and Spice and is part of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps line and the artis is Cheryl Alger.  In the set you get 3 images of this adorable little girl with a bunch of cute sentiments as well.  There is also a little boy set called Snips and Snails with 3 little boys on it that I have, but you will have to wait to see that set on a later post :)

When I was colouring this image I desided to create a nose using the copic colours.  I am sooooo very HAPPY how the nose on my little girl worked out.  I just kept telling  my BFF that "I love her nose!"  Iguess practice does make perfect using these markers, lol.
