Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

Just popping in quick before I go to my sister's to a birthday celebration.  My oldest sis is celebrating her birthday.  I like to decorate gift bags at times and create a happy scene.  I'm entering my creation over at Word Art Wednesday.

And, here is the gift bag for my sister, Donna...

Several different stamp used for the gift bag such as MFT-sun, grass, and bicycle.  The balloons, bird, and stems on the flowers are from Paper Sweeties.  The butterflies are from Sweet 'n Sassy.  The cloud die is from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I colored the bird, balloons, and butterflies with copics.  I got a little ink out of place on the balloons, so I colored a design and added polka dots.  At times, mistakes come out better than expected, which was a happy surprise!  I made a card for her, too, but I didn't take a photo of it...sigh...and it's all sealed in the envelope.  Oh, time.  But, I'm looking forward to getting together with my sisters for lunch and a good time celebrating!

Well, that's all for me now.  I'll be back soon.  In the meantime, take care and have a wonderful day!
