Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

Long time no post!  I've been busy with design team projects, birthday cards, etc.  Also, planting flowers.  Our dog, Sheila has been keeping us busy, too.  We took her to the vet last Monday and we take her again today.  The poor thing had some digestive issues and has since resolved them, thank goodness!  Today, we take her for a swollen area around her mammary gland that I noticed yesterday.  I do hope all turns out well.  Our pups are so dear...a big part of our lives!  I'm here working in my craft room/ office area and she enjoys laying in her bed while I craft.  

I do have a card today and I'm just getting it in under the wire for the challenge at Simon Says.  It's a birthday card for my sis who has a birthday next month.   She loves flamingos and I couldn't resist purchasing the stamp set from Sunny Studio.

All images were colored with copics.  The die used for the water and sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  My sis, Christina, is the middle flamingo.  She is the star of the show since it will be her birthday.  And, my other sisters and me are the surrounding flamingos.  It was so fun making this birthday card for her.  I hope she likes it!  I finished the card by spraying on Brutus Monroe pearl shimmer mist for the water.  It's difficult to see, but it does give a nice shine.

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Enjoy your day!  Take care!



  1. Sheila is so beautiful and I do hope she's going to be OK. Your birthday card is fun on the outside with all those tropical colors and fun on the inside with that cute sentiment! Your sister will surely enjoy this one :)

  2. A Gorgeous girly card, I'm sure your sister will love it. I hope your pups will be better soon, it's a worry when their not!

  3. Our dogs are part of the family and I hate that they can't tell us what's wrong. Keep us updated and I hope she is doing well now after this appointment. This is a fun sister card and the flamingos are so adorable. The sentiment is a great one!

  4. Your card is fun and vibrant and I am sure your sister will love it. Those flamingos are amazing. Sending hugs to Sheila and hope she will be OK x.

  5. How cute & special to include all your sisters on the card! Love the background & of course, the beautiful flamingos! So hard when furbabies have a problem. Hope Sheila is OK now.

  6. Oh poor little girl! I'm so sorry and really hope all goes well - They are like our children!
    Your card is gorgeous Maria. So bright and cheerful and beautifully crafted. Have a lovely weekend!

  7. So fun to depict you and your sisters as these adorable flamingoes in this beautiful scene. I’m sure your sister will love this!

    And how sweet is Sheila to keep you company while you craft.
