Popping In birthday card

     Today's card is for one of my dearest friend's and the Matron of Honor at my wedding. That great friend I dissed back in Sept. on her daughter's card as growing old ;- 0 Well, no dissing here, though I'm bound to get a humorous card from her. I used the Penny Black stamp Pansy Bunny. I love the Penny Black stamps and actually, this is the only one I own. So far I'm still just drooling over them (child in college.) I colored it with copics and inked it with Fired Brick and Broken China distress ink, after cutting it with a  Hero Arts circle die. The papers are from DCWV Holiday Christmas Stack from last year. The embellishments are from K &Comapany's Flower and Bug asst. The sentiment is my own and the font is Chopin, which is one of the new free ones I just picked up (see the post below this one titled "So many fonts so little time.") I decided, since she is such a good friend to put the extra work in and make it an easel card ;- ) The stamped sentiment, on the easel part, is from Hero Arts's Birthday Wishes stamp set.

     The sentiment, on the inside top, was done digitally and it is again the Chopin font.

     I've included a side photo, because I need to be reminded how it's folded every time ;- ) Probably because I don't do them that often, though I do like them. The blog is titled "Beginner cards," so this might be your first exposure to them. If you have any questions on how to put one together, they are explained here or just ask me in the comments and I'll answer your questions. Can you guess when this needed to be in the mail? I can hear my frequent readers yelling, Today! They would be correct and it made it, because all I had to do today was photograph it after gluing in the inside sentiment!

     I have another card, almost finished that I should be posting tomorrow. Then, there are 2 more that I have to get done in the next couple of days. I know, CRAZY! I'll have to work on some thank-yous for those people who filled in for me and brought us meals, too. AND, it's almost time for the next progressive digital to be do. Isn't this suppose to be relaxing, ha ha! Would you believe, I joined another progressive at The Outlawz!? Probably, because I'm so quick at getting the first one done >.< The images for this one are just gorgeous! If your interested at all, here is your chance to get in at the ground floor and pick up 4 free digital images. Check them out here. You do need to be a member of The Outlawz to play, but joining is free.

Thanks for popping in ;- ) Please leave a comment, because I really appreciate hearing from you. It's wet and cold here, hope this finds nicer weather wherever you are ;- ) Keep on creating!

Beautiful mix of scrapping and digital, as always Debbie! And Chopin was one of my favorite fonts back when I used to make MySpace graphics....the stone age apparently. I love my FB, but I miss the customized looks I used to be able to give my myspace. Sending a little warmth and sunshine your way. I have a little to spare during the day but boy does it get cold at night here!
