Happy Birthday Ava

I know I'm guilty of neglecting my blog recently but Oct. and Nov. have been busy for me . I spend 3 weeks in October in Calgary visiting my son and family . It was such a fun time and with the beautiful weather they were having we spent most of our time outside . My two grand daughters were so excited that I was going to be there for Halloween to go to their school party and dress up with them for trick or treating. Now that I'm back home I decided to give my main floor a face lift so have been painting and cleaning for the past 2 weeks.  In between I did get a chance to make a couple of cards . It's my GD 3rd birthday coming up so here's a card I made for her . She loves to go for ice cream so I found a sheet of paper with ice cream cones on it . The image is a Penny Black stamp with I colored with copic markers and added some stickles for sparkle .


Here's a second card I made with the paper that was left over



Entering these in the following challenges

All Sorts Challenge 338 ----At least 3 dies

Penny black Saturday Challenge--November(dies or punches)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend , thanks for stopping by ,love reading your comments.

These are both too sweet! I like the pink and blue combo, and your addition of little embellishments in and around the main image makes the card special. Gotta love those Penny Black critter stamps! I know the girls enjoy receiving your cards and it's so thoughtful to make one with icecream cones.
