Happy Birthday to You

Happy Birthday dear Jillian

Happy Birthday to YOU!! and many morrrrreeeeee.....
So, trust me when I say you are HAPPY I typed that and you didn't have to hear me SING it...cause trust me, it isn't pretty!! Anywho...welcome to the Hoppin' PARTAY!! That's right, it is our very own Prettie Girl, Jillian's, birthday party blog hop!! If you are just now seeing this party, you need to go to the new Paper Pretties blog, the Paper Clip to get started!! Follow the links from the Paper Clip on through the party so that you don't miss one bit of the festivities, and in the end, you will get to leave Jillian a message telling her Happy Birthday!! All of the Prettie girls are participating in the party, and we are each bringing a little something with us...I am bringing the presents!! Actually, Wade E. Bug is bringing the presents!! I stamped my Wade E. Bug image from Paper Pretties on Whisper White paper with Black Stazon ink. I then colored the image in with my SU markers and outlined the whole image with my Prismacolor Cool Grey marker. The image is layered with Green Galore, Ballet Blue and Real Red(wouldn't Carole be proud). I pierced a border around the main image and added some spiral clips with some yummy ribbon from Strano. The presents are actually part of the My Favorite Things set, You Take the Cake. I stamped them on some American Crafts Celebration paper that I got ON SALE at the Paper Pretties store...where Christie is still having and INSANELY awesome sale!! Everything in the store is on sale for 75% off except for the crystals and Prettie Stamps. The base has some more of the DP with a piece of Real Red paper underneath it. I used my scalloped edge punch on it then layered it on a piece of Whisper White paper that was run through my Cuttlebug with my Happy Birthday folder. I added silver brads to the corners and some white taffeta and red gingham. The stars were made with my SU star punches and the sentiment is from the Paper Pretties Bugs and Fishes set. This is also my card for today's Featured Stamper, Kendra. Here is her card that I cased!!
