Hi Stampers,

My neighbor is turning 80 in a week.  Most people who see her guess her to be in her 60’s.  She has no health issues requiring medication and she has more energy than that little pink bunny with the drum.  Her back yard looks like it comes out of HGTV and she can build anything you can imagine.  Her entire life revolved around various kitchens from restaurants to banquets so I thought the chef scene using the Birthday Delivery stamp set was appropriate for her card.

I started with a base card of Whisper White CS.. I used the Brick Wall Textured Impressions embossing folder for the background and used a brayer with Crumb Cake ink to add a touch of color.  I used the Hearth and Home thinlits and the Wood Textures DSP stack to create the window frame.  I stamped the chef and the cake with Memento Black ink on a separate piece of Whisper White CS that fit behind the window. I used a blender pen and various inks to color in the images.  I used the Birthday Friends framelits to cut out the little girl.  I added her to the card with dimensionals.  I had so much fun with this card especially because I know it will be appreciated.

On another note if I am missing posts it may be because my hubby is having some health issues and we have not gotten all the testing done and all the answers yet.  Sometimes being a nurse isn’t such a good thing.  Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you for stopping by.



Hugs and happy stamping,  MB
