Happy Birthday Schnookems!

Well, my "old man" is turning a year older today so I thought my post would have a birthday theme! This is not the card he's getting though -- too girly! Pink sparkles? Me thinks not! I don't even want to begin to tell you about the card he got me for my b-day. OH MY! I am still laughing but it's a little off color. So, we'll save that story for another time!

So... cue the music... Happy Birthday To YOU!!!


I just got this new rubber from Impression Obsession! It is part of the winter offerings from the talented illustrator Leigh Hannan! The main stamp is called Birthday Martini and the saying is -- Happy Birthday To You!

The card was super duper easy! I stamped the main image with Versamark Black ink, colored with watercolor pencils, added some Stickles, matted it up with the help of my nesties, add some pink satin ribbon and you're almost done! The saying was stamped on a 1-1/4" circle and, of course, I had to add some bling to both the saying and the bottom of the glass! No such thing as too much bling! The background paper is actually called Nana's Kids from DCWV. Round the corners on the card and.... VOILA!

Here's a look at my little tag....

And, here's a close up of the birthday martini! Don't you love the little cupcakes??? I do!
