HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KYLIE!!

Hello, Happy Monday and....I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!!  My husband and I traveled to visit his family over the weekend (we're heading home today), and in the hectic-ity of work, house-cleaning (we have guests arriving this week), packing and whatever else Disorganized Me was trying to deal with, I didn't get a chance to post 'this' card in a timely fashion!  Naughty me...I will put myself in the corner promptly on my return home!

The important date: the birthday celebration, organized by sweet and amazing Loll, for the talented, charming,creative Kylie, from Kylie is Addicted to Stamps, and also the hostess of Addicted to Stamps and More and Addicted to CAS.  She's also started a new forum, Happy Little Stampers. If you want inspiration, her blogs are the place to go!  Stencils, die cuts, mixed media, stamping, water-colour...you name it, she does it, with style, flair and panache.  She is one energetic designer for sure!!

For Kylie's card, I brought out my Birthday embossing folder, a gift from the awesome Kim, over at Cupcakes, Cards and Kim, and paired it with a sentiment from Neat and Tangled.  I added glossy enamels to the little hearts.


In real life, my card is far more turquoise than what you see here. Isn't that embossing folder a gem??

Kylie, hope your day was incredibly special, and the celebrations continue to spill over into this week, and the next, and the next!! Wishing you a year filled with absolute joy in every possible way!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!!

  3. Hi Carol. Love all the amazing texture from this embossing folder. You know, I have the same one and have never used it (unfortunately, there are a lot of things in my studio like that) :( Anyways, you have inspired me ... I need to pull it out so it is visible and hopefully it will spark me to use it :)

    Love it done in the beautiful turquoise. And I LOVE the stitched mat with your sweet sentiment and glossy hearts. The stitched mat dies from MFT have been on my wish list for a long time ... need to get them! :)

    Thanks for coming to the party!! Loll xx

I love this color cs - it really does showcase the ef well! Nice tidy little sentiment panel and a couple of wee hearts finish this off beautifully! Swell card pal!
