Happy birthday Geri !

Hi there!

A very special blog friend is celebrating her birthday today!

The birthday girl is Geri the Manitoba stamper !

Because Geri is such a sweet sweet friend, I wanted to make her something just as sweet... is that even possible?




This sweet image is part of a collection of digital stamps ( Pink petticoat  ) I won some time ago at Less is more.

I opened the image in my Silhouette programme, traced it to get cutting lines, and then used the print and cut function to " fuzzy cut " her lovely curves!

I cut the shape 3 times and layered it to give her more weight ... she's so skinny... I thought she could do with a little more weight ;)

She is 'standing' on a piece of scrap paper to which I added color with my pink Promarker. The birthday girl was also colored with Promarkers. Geri, you know coloring is not my thing, but hey, I gave it a shot... just for you!

I added my own sentiment which I will share with you:




The layout inspiration for Geri's card  was supplied by Freshly made sketches. I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the right.

                                           
Also adding my link to the CAS challenge at Addicted to stamps 

                                                      GRAB OUR BADGE!


That's it for now... enjoy your special day Geri, and thanks for visiting me today!

Verskriklik, verskriklik oulik, vrou!!!! O, sy is net te pragtig en so lieflik ingekleur!!!! Mal oor daai strepe waarop sy staan!!! Sy kan definitief doen met 'n kilo of meer om daai dun lyfie, ne, sy moet sommer altwee daai roomyse eet - hou van hoe jy haar gehelp het om bietjie meer gewigtig te wees!!! Wat 'n slim gebruik van die skets - hierdie een gaan definitief onder die wenners vir die week wees!!! En Geri gaan beslis net so mal soos ek daaroor wees!!!!
Groete
