Special delivery

With this card I am once again ahead in my card making. I have a little bit of a break in Birthday's so I get a chance to catch up a bit, which is good since I have alot of birthday's in the fall months.

When I saw this image I thought this would be great for so many different type cards, and with this sentiment I thought it would be great for a birthday.

I colored the image and cut out the shapes yesterday and when I went to put it together today I so wished I would have colored her dress a different color, I know you can't tell but I used different blues, they just turned out looking alot alike.  I will have to use this as a learning experiment.

Stampavie -- Mailing letters stamp, colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- Standard circle lg, noble rectangles and Labels four dies
Stamps of Life -- postmarks 2 stamp, sentiment
Want 2 scrap -- pearls (corners)

We are having a nice visit with our daughter and son in law, whenever they have meetings to attend or friends they are meeting up with I try to make my way in the craft room, so hopefully I will have another card in a couple of days :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your week is getting off to a great start!

Love this and the pearl details Connie!! It's always good to see the kids but hope they don't compete with your crafting time too much - I get cranky when I don't create (there's a t-shirt saying in there somewhere - lol!)
