Birthday girl

I finally did it!


I got around to making one of these adorable little punched girls inspired by Missy B. and Michelle. So fun to make!! There are so many possibilities with them, different hair styles, colors, face features, you can mix 'em up any way you like!! :D I made this one for my sister since her birthday is coming up next week. I'm sure she'll love it!

I used Shimmer Chalks for the cheeks, an oval punch for the pony tails (punched one then drew a yin-yang shape on it and cut it in half), and one fun little tip I discovered while making this is that the Martha Stewart Pop Up Hydrangea punch (the one with the 3 little flowers on it), works perfectly with A Muse's Kitchen notecards/cardstock! You can perfectly punch out the 2 smaller flowers with a white center!! :D So fun!

I know my posts have been delayed lately so it's no surprise to you, but I wanted to let you know I won't be posting for a few days. My DH's uncle passed away so we're heading out of town to visit family for his funeral.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

This is so cute - and it's another idea for using the Madiera notecards. It's the perfect background for this cutie. Sincere sympathy on the loss of your husband's uncle. You are in my thoughts an prayers.
