Happy Birthday Theresa!


Good morning!  Today is a special day as we are celebrating a couple milestones of one of my teamies at Tuesday Morning Sketches; not only are we celebrating Theresa's 50th birthday, we are celebrating the fact that she is a cancer survivor....  So, Theresa, "Happy Birthday to you...and many more!"

I'll bet Theresa would love it if you stopped by her blog, My Sassy Cards, and wished her well!  

These lovely ladies are also wishing Theresa well today:

Bonnie at Grandma Bonnie's Place
Cheryl at Ink Up
Dawn at Paper Paradise
Debbie at Debbie's Dash of This and That
Jessi at One Crafty Mama
Jessica at Jess' Obsession
Jessica at There She Goes
Kathleen at Will Stamp for Wine
Laura at The Crafty Sister
Marie at Ink'd Wings
Melissa at Stamp It, Scrap It, Share It
Shelby at Color of Happy
Silke at My Life

This challenge will run all month at Tuesday Morning Sketches with the winner for the blog candy to be drawn on November first.  Here are the details: The challenge is Pink and Birthday; optional are Breast Cancer Awareness and Theresa's favorite color combo of Pink and Green.  Well, what are you waiting for?  Get busy and play along!

For my card, I wanted to go with Theresa's favorite colors; I used a Stampendous Calendar Chick and colored her with pencils.  I did a bit of distressing to add some texture, and I embellished with ribbon and pearls in 3 groups of three.

Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and New Leaf, SU! Melon Mambo, Echo Park DP
Embellies: Recollections Pearls, SU! Melon Mambo Grosgrain Ribbon

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
