Skating By To Say Happy Birthday

Hello and happy Friday to you!
Thanks for stopping in for a visit.

I have a fun birthday card to share with you today.  The images are from the "Skating By" stamp set by Avery Elle and are so, so cute....

As always, the hair gave me some grief.  But, I decided to just stop stressing over it and (as my granddaughter, Hannah would say) let it go!

I created a brick sidewalk with the "Brick Wall" stencil from My Favorite Things, a gray Copic Marker and Hero Arts Ink in gray.  I used Salty Ocean Distress Ink for my sky and added a bit of grass with Copic Markers.

Here's a peek at the inside of my card.

I paper pieced the balloons and colored the images with Copic Markers.  Her dress is covered in Wink of Stella Clear Glitter, but as usual, I was unable to capture the shimmer.

I guess that about wraps up this fun card.  Thanks again for stopping by. I'm off to visit your blogs and see what you ladies have been up to. Have a great weekend and I'll see you soon!


  1. Oh how CUTE... LOVE that sweet skate girl! Fab background and pretty papers! Have a wonderful weekend!! :)


  2. Cute, cute, cute. Love the scene you created with the sidewalk. The little girl is adorable.
    Have a creative day.

  3. That little skater is so cute! I remember skating on sidewalks. Adorable card. Thanks for the memory.

  4. Adorable card!! Did you have a die to cut out the images or did you use a Cricut? If it was by hand I'm amazed at how perfect you cut!!!!

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comments! I'm afraid I could not cut that perfectly if my life depended on it! I use my Brother Scan N Cut for most of my images. It's a big investment in the beginning, but quickly pays for itself when you realize how much money we spend on dies and how expensive they are becoming.
