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 :)

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