Happy Birthday Auntie!

Hi Everyone!
Just a quick post today.
My Aunt's birthday was July 3 and I made a card to let her know how special she is to me.  She is my Mom's sister and has always been like a 2nd mother to me.
I love you Aunt Mary!

The Sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts (I LOVE this set!).
The stamped image is from Adam Pescott.  I colored it in with Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze gel pens and Le Plume Markers.
The image is attached to a paper doily that I bought at Michaels and inked it up for some color.
The background paper is My Minds Eye Totally Girl Stack.
The best part:  it took about 20 minutes to make!  Cut, punch, stamp, ink, and glue!

Have a great night!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Julie, How sweet is that? Your Auntie will surely love it. The little image is absolutely adorable...cute. Good job, looks intense.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Such a sweet card, Julie. I'm sure it will be very loved by your Aunt. I have got to try stamping more...just need more stamps! Really great job!

  4. Lovely card. That doily looks fabulous with your combination of papers.


  5. Hey Julie! This card is awesome! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day and commenting on my couponing, lol.. Its something new I took up to save money and i'm addicted, lol.. I live in FL so no stores double coupons, but there are still good deals to get! If you ever get interested in it, send me and email and I will forward all my resources and websites I learned from and follow. Thanks again :)


  6. This card very pretty Julie, I'm sure your Aunt will love it.
    Funny thing is I have an Aunt whose Birthday is July 3 also and I just used that same stamp on my card I posted today-- Great minds thing alike
    PS. I have a button now-- you had mentioned awhile back

  7. Had to leave another comment to let you know I have a blog award for you. I hope you'll stop by my blog to pick it up!


  8. I love this card!! What a great idea to add that doily it gives it a vintagy look! TFS and Happy Birthday to your Aunt Mary!!

    Lots of Love,
    Your DT SIS,

  9. I'm sure there probably is a gadget for the chat function! It is after 1am here so my night has to come to an end here soon or I'll never be able to wake up with the monsters at 5am. Yes, they start waking up between 5 and 5:30 grrr... they get that from their dad because I surely don't like being up that early! I love this cute LO :) Have a good night Julie! I'll let you know when I figure out that chat thing!!
