Happy Birthday Darling....

Hello!  Anybody else happy that tomorrow is FRIDAY! Oh yea! I can't not wait to be off for the weekend. We have hardly any plans and I hope it stays that way.  My house is in terrible need of a good cleaning. My Hubby is taking the son to some boat thing on Saturday, my MIL is taking my daughter to a Fancy Nancy thing at Barnes and Noble. I love cranking my iTunes and cleaning. I would much rather do it without them here! When they are here things just never seem to get clean, KWIM. 

I plan on laying by the pool for a while Saturday and Sunday....I need some sun before I go on my cruise which is coming up soon! Speaking of, we are going on the Oasis of the Seas....I CAN NOT WAIT!  I am so going to find me a nice comfy chair and chill with my nook in one hand and a Strawberry Daq. in the other!  Sounds good, huh? This ship has so much stuff to do that my kids best not ever say the words "i'm bored!!"  If they do, I'm am going to wave over a waiter and get another drink....I'm telling you!!

Ok on to craft stuff. Recently I started chit-chatting with a fellow crafter/blogger. Anniebee does some beautiful work and I was ewww'in and awww'in (I don't know how to spell that but you get the idea!! LMBO) over her beautiful Roses!!  Well guesss what? She sent me some and they are even better in person. I am serious, I am totally blown away over the way these things are crafted. Not only are the beautiful (and they really are) they are the sturdiest Roses I have ever seen. I'm telling you...this girl has talent.

You can check out here Blog HERE.
Here are the beautiful roses  she sent me. I  love PINK!

Can you see the Rosebuds?? Oh my, I was just soooo happy with my package!! Thank you Anne!!! You're the Best!

So of course I got these beautiful flowers and I just had to use them on a card. Best thing is that I had already started coloring this up beforeI got them and they go perfectly.

Is this not the cutest image?? When Mo Manning released these BBW (big beautiful Woman) digi's I was pretty happy. I think they are adorable. I can see this one being used for a bday card for my hubby....or for a BFF...which is how I have used it. Of course when I saw this, I had to go on the hunt for a great sentiment because it's just one of those images that needs that. Ya know?

The Inside says " The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age." Lucille Ball

I loved the qoute and thought this was a great girlfriend card. Can you just see her saying "Happy Birthday,  Darling." and then air kissing both sides of her cheek. Well if you don't sorry... that's what I see!!! hehe

Here's Anne's beauties again....oh and the blue things I made with wire and flower soft.

I colored this image with copic markers but I did do a little bit of highlighting with some Prisma color pencils in the dress. The matte is a the lacey square die from spellbinders. I cut out to and made it a rectangle so it would fit my long image. The papers are from My Minds Eye. The roses are handmade by ANNIEBEE. Check out her blog, she has some fabby things. I especially love the box she made with these gorgeous roses all over it! So pretty.

Love the birthday card Tracy. It is super cute!

Anniebee said...

Awwww, Tracy, you're too sweet!!! Thank you so much for promoting my roses and my blog... you're just the best! You didn't tell your readers what you did for me in return for the flowers so I guess I'll have to leave them in suspense until I have a chance to get something made with your wonderful gift and post it on my own blog! LOL! Thank you sooo much! I love every single one of them!

Big hugs,
