March Birthday Blog Hop!


It’s another Mixed Media Chix blog hop!! Valentine’s Day was so much fun we decided to do it again! This time, we chose a birthday theme, which works out perfectly for me since my older daughter was born in March and turns…(eek! I can hardly believe it!) 25 this month!!

Of course I had to create a fun, fashionable card to celebrate this milestone birthday for her. Happy Birthday, Cait! Sending all sorts of love and hugs your way!!!!

25 and beautiful

I used a variety of techniques on the background for this card. First I stamped it with a background stamp. Then I sprayed Goosebumps  through a stencil to act as a resist. I sponged on Distress ink and gelatos to build up some layers and then I used some images fussy-cut from patterned paper for the focal point! My daughter  is quite the fashionista so I hope she likes this card!

Lots of our blog hop participants have family members celebrating this month including Maria whose babies turn 8 on the same day as my daughter! Here is the lineup so you can check out everyone’s projects:

Maria Levine 
Laurie Finch –you’re right here!!
Tracy Easson
Julie Odil
Sally Lynn MacDonald

I hope you enjoy our little hop, don’t forget to comment to win Maria’s generous prize and if you are celebrating this month – Happy Birthday to you!!

Supplies: Unity Stamps -Dinged Dots, ImagineCrafts – Goosebump spray, Crafter’s Workshop – Harlequin stencil, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Old Paper & Black Soot, Faber-Castell Gelatos – metallic melon and DCWV Lady Couture stack.

    Your card is beautiful! And no worries, I have you beat! My daughter turned 28 at the end of last year! Talk about feeling old….

    Anyway, I’m sure she’s going to love it! It says “style” in every way.
