A Birthday Suprise

Hi everyone & a special welcome to all my new followers.
Thank you to all of you for coming to see me & also a massive thank you to all the wonderful comments that you have been leaving me :)  I totally appreciate it & it makes all this blogging worthwhile lol.

I am running a bit behind today.  I have SO much to do, so I am going to be a busy little bee :)  It has been raining here all weekend so it has been nice staying inside & creating my new design.

I decided to follow this sketch at Mojo Monday.  Hopefully I will have enough time to squeeze it into their challenge.  I only have 1hr 20 mins to make the deadline lol.  Aargh.  Can I do it? lol

This is the sketch:

Here is my design:

As mentioned the other day in my Dreamtime Glimpse, it is a Stampavie stamp by Penny Johnson.  Isn't it cute? :)

I used the following Copic colours:

Skin: E000, 00, 11, 21, R20
Hair: E50, 53, 57
Top & Crown: B000, 00, 02, 05, 93, 95, 97
Dog: E40, 41, 43, 47, 50, 51, 53,
Box: R00, 14, 17, 27, 37, 46
Bow: YR00, 02, 07

Want to pin the Copic colour combo?

I actually used some of my punches that haven't seen the light of day for....oooh...a few years lol.  It was good to get them out again :)

All of the banners are handmade (not using a die) & the balloons gave me such a hard time with trying to tie on the thread. Apart from that it was a breeze easy design to put together.

I decorated the inside this time.

It is a pretty flat design but it has a little dimension :)

If you would like to pin this design to your Pinterest board:
