Happy birthday! I hope this birthday brings you a year full of wonderful events! One of my fondest memories is of a cake that my mother made for me. I don't know how she did it (probably food coloring and frosting), but I had the most fabulous pastel-multicolored cake I had ever seen. Colors just swirled around and into each other. She surrounded that lovely cake with cupcakes frosted with the same gorgeous frosting! I'm sure my Dad just scratched his head, but I loved it. I was probably about 10 or 11 when this happened :)

Congratulations Ravengirl! Please email at the email address on the right, and I will get your prize right out for you!

I so enjoyed reading the sweet and happy birthday memories that were submitted! Thanks so much for participating on my special day!

Now to this evening's post! Here's a sneak peek featuring "You Will Find Refuge" from Our Daily Bread designs! This set, as well as three other bird related sets, will be available February 1st!

Don't you just love this sweet chickadee? It's one of the very few birds that brave the winter with us in the North! This little bit of fluff was one the top of the list to ink up first!

Long and narrow...another of my faves! I wanted a cheerful paper for this go around, and chose some retired Stampin' Up dp from my stash. The crisp black and white really focuses on the image, and makes the berries *POP*!

My image is stamped onto white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with numerous Copic markers. I die cut the image panel with a Spellbinder's Oval die (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store), angled just so. A touch of glaze on the berries and chickadee's eye added a realistic touch.

Here's a close up of the coloring, glaze and vintage button/grosgrain ribbon treatment.

Look forward to seeing the other three new set sneak peeks, coming soon! Also, there will be a blog hop February 1st, beginning at the Our Daily Bread design's Blog!

Have a wonderful week!

Happy Belated Birthday, Deb! I didn't know you were a January baby, too. Mine was January 22.

It's interesting to see just how pervasive memory has become in our everyday lives. It seems like everytime I turn my head, I see something with a card slot or USB jack, haha. I guess it makes sense though, considering how much cheaper memory has become as of late...

Gahhhh, I shouldn't be complaining. I can't make it through a day without using my R4 / R4i!
