Tina's Birthday

Good evening & I hope this finds you well ....
This is the card that I made for my bestie, Tina, whose birthday is actually tomorrow but we got together today with a couple of other friends at one of the local pools with all the kids and hung out and chillaxed for the day ...  The sun had a gosh almighty bite to it though coz even with two layers of sunscreen I still managed to get sun burnt!! Summer is definitely here ....

For Tina's card I coloured the image "Rose's Bike Ride" by Wee stamps (by Sylvia Zet).  All of her images are gorgeous and sooo girly ... definitely a favourite of mine (I say that a lot don't I? lol).  I coloured with my copics and prismas and used Authentique Uncommon PP and kept it nice and simple because of the size if the image and I also just wanted it to be about the stamp.  Tina loved it and even her not quite 5yr old little boy was impressed lol :D

Close Up of Colouring
I just want to mention that I got very excited when I went to the mailbox this afternoon because there was my candy that I won from Irene which was a Magnolia pack (stamp, papers, flowers) so I'm looking forward to playing with them.  Mind you though they were posted in November from Indonesia so it took a wee while to get here ... Now I won't give up on some other "Sweet Stuff"  that I won from Jacque that still hasn't arrived lol.

Anyway, I'm off to enter this into some challenges and try and get my daughter and her friend who is having a sleepover here tonight to settle down and watch a movie ... Wish me luck lol :D
