Wishing you a birthday...

Hi everyone!  It's amazing how much sleep can affect one's attitude...I actually got some last night.  But it appears I also took a walk while sleeping and left the sliding glass door to the backyard wide open in the middle of the night!  I remember nothing.  My husband was afraid someone might be in the house and was looking for his shotgun.  I can only imagine how he felt in that moment!  Hopefully there will be no more all-nighters with Schmitzy!

Today I have a girly birthday greeting using the sketch at Seize the Birthday.

The sentiment is finished on the inside:

I think this is a fun little stamp.  It is Ketto from Stamping Bella and the sentiment is also SB, but from a different line.

I used My Mind's Eye dp, coloring the BD girl with Copics and Spicas.  I added a rhinestone flourish and a Prima flower and used an MFT fishtail die to cut out the sentiment.  Nesties were used for the interior sentiment (front and inside are actually just one stamp that I broke up).

Schmitzy and I had a pretty good day.  I had to go into the office today and then stop by the hospital to visit a dear friend that gave birth to a baby girl yesterday.  There is something about babies that is so magical and they make you feel like all is right in the world.  Welcome, Olivia!  I love you already!

I am also entering the following challenges:
