Birthday Goodies

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card with NEW goodies!  My birthday is on Sunday, so I *may* have treated myself to a few stamping presents this past week.  (Hey, I'll take any excuse for new toys!  LOL)  Anyway, some of my new purchases have already started arriving!!!  Hooray!  When my TCP box showed up yesterday, I couldn't wait to break out my new stamps, felt and dies, and I thought they'd work well with the new Life is Good paper by Echo Park.

The sketch is this week's TCP Tuesday challenge {TCP119} and it was also Leigh O'Brien's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge.  I stamped the bunny from the Forget About the Cake set, then cut out with classic oval Nesties and colored with Copics, paper piecing the cake (well, actually just the icing!) and adding some sparkle with Stardust Stickles and some Petal Pink liquid pearls on the early espresso scalloped circle.  I wish you could see the sparkle in the photo - it really does shine!

The new Flower Buttons die is just dreamy and I cut the top set with coordinating DP and the other set with the yummy new felt (from the Seeing Red and Green with Envy collections) Alma is carrying.  I stitched them together with some linen thread, then made a little tag for the "Forget about the cake. Go for the icing." sentiment.

Okay, that's all for me this fine Friday.  Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!  :)
