I had so much fun coloring this image. As I colored it I thought of the the sentiment that I added. I created it with my PC and used the brush accent stamp that comes with this set to add that last finishing touch. The Background DP reminded me of painted brush strokes and ended up being so perfect for this image.

This image is SO FUN! How cute is her hair.  It's so wild and free looking. When I first saw this image I was instantly in love with this little cutie. I wanted to do something really 'wild' and fun for her so I picked the bright orange and Pinks. I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch for the layout.. 

I love the pink and orange combo and I hope you guys love it too.

TCP166 - Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I'm excited about today's post. I got to play along with The Cat's Pajamas this week - wooohooo.  It's been a while since I did a random challange and I'm so glad I made time to fit in this challenge.

This weeks inspiration for TCP 166 is the following:

Yummy - cupcakes, frosting, pinks, browns, yellows, candles, balloons, polka dolts.  There are so many choices here!  Here is the card I came up with...

Super fun. I used my A Beary Good Year stamp set for my card. This set just plains rocks.  You can make so many cards with this. With a lil bit of masking you can make PJ hold anything in his hand. 
This card was made for anyone turning 2!

I also used two TCP Cut Ups - Icing and the mini Pennants.

Thanks for visiting and hope you all have a great weekend!!
