Birthday's mean dessert!

Happy Sunday folks and Happy Birthday Sissy! Sorry this is a little slow in getting posted. I've been enjoying the wonderful summer-like weather we are having in Upstate NY. Actually got out my bike and rode 13 miles today. Woo Hoo it felt so great! I knew that my Sissy was getting dessert made from her girlies today so I used that as the inspiration for her card.

I've always been more apt to cook than bake. Not my Sissy, she can do both and she's a great baker. So here's Lulu's Two Pies from Stamping Bella. I've had her for months now and just got around to inking her. The colors are inspired from Tanya. The pretty blue and yellow reminded me of a French Bistro. I pulled the My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Hattie 6x6 paper to work with. I stamped her first onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored her with copics. I also used some prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol for shading, the steam and the ground and surround coloring.

Nestie circle dies, a Martha Stewart border punch, black glaze pen for her hair and a prima paper flower adorned with a rhinestone finish this off. The sentiment is included with the stamp so you get a two for one! Love those. Oh wait - there's some glitter there too. I mean Lulu is high class here and she doesn't need to worry about splattering on her apron. Hehe. Lin's getting a chocolate molten cake so she might want to leave the glitter in the closet this time.

Now make sure you watch Emily's blog because she's been posting some sneak peaks for the upcoming release. I'll be sharing one of the new images tomorrow so come on back ok?

Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by!

Awww Cath, thank-you for mentioning my card as your color inspiration, you are so sweet! She is just adorable. I love how you colored her apron. I had major issues (haven't mastered the pleat technique) so I just put stickles on it and called it a day, lol. Anyhow, she's beautiful and I'm sure your sister will love her!
