Birthday's Blow!!! I'm Baack :)

Yep, the title says it all for me after last week.  Birthday's aren't all they're cracked up to be once you get my age, but for the most part I love my life, but that wouldn't make a very funny card now would it?  LOL!!!

Here is Sassy Cheryl's Freebie Bubble Blower Girl Birthday Card:

When I colored this little cutie I really had no idea what card I would make with it.  A couple of weeks ago I went to my LSS which carries Tim Holtz products and they had these little mock bingo cards which I thought were so cute so I decided this one matched the sentiment I wanted to use. 
The coloring was done with copic markers and the edge was sponged with broken china distress ink.  The flower is a Tim Holtz die cut flower and I used tweezers to bend the edges of the pedals to give it a little dimension.  The center is an enamel head thumb tack which I cut the tack part off and attached it with foam mounting tape. 
The tag that has Birthday's stamped on it is a journaling tag sold through Tim Holtz as well, and I tucked it under the Blow card to create the sentiment stack. 

It sure feels good to be able to make cards and color again.    I have another card almost ready for tomorrow, but we will see how much time I have,  My oldest daughter and two of her girls are coming up for the week-end and I go back to work on Sunday. 

I just want to thank each and every one of you who sent me well wishes and prayers while I was in the hospital.  It helps more than you know!!! Love ya all

 Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow.

Hi Cathy,
Great that you are home and can sleep soundly in your own bed again. I see you waisted no time in 'whipping' up another gorgeous card. I love this one with the 'perfect' bingo tag!!!
Hugs, Candy
