Happy Birthday Emma!

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by!
It's been a busy day around here and I'm pooped!  We started the morning off at Church then out for a quick lunch.  Home long enough to change clothes and read the paper then off to Emma's birthday party.  After the party, I brought my hubby back home then headed out to do a bit more Christmas shopping.  After lugging everything into the house, I'm too tired to start wrapping the gifts!

So, I think I'm going to share my sweet Emma's birthday card with you lovely people then head to bed!  Tomorrow begins my week of Jury Duty and I cannot tell you how much I dread it.  I know I am going to spend my days at the courthouse thinking about the things I need to be doing at home as Christmas gets closer and closer and closer...

On to better things... my Emma will be turning 8 years old on December 23rd and today was her birthday party.  She wanted Cats and the color purple for her party so that's what I went with for her birthday card....

(click on photo to enlarge)

* I started with some purple Bazzil cardstock and formed my cardbase. I rounded off the bottom edges and added some stitching lines with my white gel pen.
* The fun printed papers are from Hobby Lobby's "The Paper Studio" line
* The bright pink ribbon was in my stash and added a nice splash of color
* The mat for the birthday kitten was cut with the Spellbinders "Labels 17" die.  I embossed the mat with Cuttlebug's "Happy Birthday" folder and added more stitching lines

* That sweet little kitten is from "Create A Critter 2" and is cut at 4 inches.  A few gems dress up her outfit. I added lots of gold glitter to her crown and wand for a touch of bling!
* My sentiment mat is cut from the "Flag Die" by Jaded Blossom.  The sentiment is from the "Celebration" stamp set by CTMH
* The cupcakes on either side of the sentiment were in my stash and I'm not sure where they came from, but thought they were perfect for Emma's card!

By the way, if my stitching lines look a bit "wonky", please note that this card was completed with the stitches still in my finger (at least that's what I'm blaming it on)!  I will have them in for a few more days and can't wait to get them out!

Thanks again for stopping by - as always, I appreciate your visits and sweet comments!  I'll be popping in as time permits over the next few days.  Keep your fingers crossed that I don't get chosen for any crazy cases this week!

Until next time,
