Birthday Splash

Good Morning!

I'm off to shop for baby supplies today.....for my husband's cousin that is! She's visiting from Toronto for a couple of days and only found out a few weeks ago that she and her new husband are expecting their first child in 8 or so months. This trip will probably make me a little clucky (an Australian term I think). I so want another baby too! One day soon I hope.

Today I have another Twinkling sketch for you! This week we have a temporary Twinkie in our midst. Madelynn's younger brother, Jack, has a great sketch lined up for us. You can check it out on the Twinkling Tuesday blog.

I am falling in love with these Sugarplum images from All That Scraps! So is my 4 year old. I had this card sitting on my desk and Syd stopped dead in her tracks when she spotted it! Looks like I may have to make a purchase in the near future. I was given this image by a great friend.

I rotated the sketch 90 degrees. for my card. I used ribbons for the vertical elements in the sketch and the scalloped edge for the stars down the side. The fun paper and scalloped border are from a stack of Sassafras Lass paper I bought at Michael's a while back. Miss Emma is colored up with SU reinkers and an aquapainter.

For a little bit of sparkle, I added an adhesive rhinestone to the center of the flower on her cap.

There have been a few changes to the Twinkling Design Team of late. We're saying goodbye to Kimmie Doktor and welcome back to Taylor Usry! Kimmie, I'll miss your creative talent! Also, Heather Lee Reppen is taking a wee break, so we'll add her name back to the blog list when she's back from her hiatus. This week's featured Twinkie is the super sweet Kim Ross! You can also check out what the other Twinkette's did with the sketch by checking out their blogs listed on the left. If you'd like to play along, just create your card and post a link back to it on today's post. If you upload to SCS, don't forget to use the keyword MTTSC30.

Thanks for stopping by today!

WOW, Sandra! Where do I start with what I love about this card! The scalloped edge, the stitching, the image, the DP, the ribbon and button treatments!! It's all great!! I think of blues when I think of the beach and surfing, but the reds and pinks are absolutely fabulous!! I hope you don't mind if I case this color scheme! It's wonderful!!
