Happy Birthday to one of the most beloved ladies in blogland.
We each were supplied a portion of blueberry cardstock (see story below) to create a birthday card for Darnell.
Happy, Happy Birthday, my friend.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARNELL!!
Please join us in celebrating Darnell's Birthday!!
One more part to this special event.
The team has made special cards for Darnell's birthday,
along with our Guest Designer Leslie,
and several Featured Designers (friends from the retreat).
During our retreat, Darnell (Dolly to us) was up early one morning
and decided she wanted some frozen blueberries.
Some how she spilled almost the whole, Costco-sized bag of
blueberries all over the floor.
Bonnie snapped these pictures.
See the swipe of blueberries on the right photo?? Dolly couldn't find a broom so she grabbed
a large piece of card stock to pick up the berries. As they thawed, the blueberry juice
"smooshed" on the cardstock in a lovely design that looked perfect for card making.
Well, without Dolly knowing, we kept that piece of blueberry smoosh and cut it up.
Each Designer has used one piece in making Dolly's birthday cards. :)
This is my last card as the Surprise Party Guest for the last two months. Thank you so much Nancy for the honor. It was so much fun.
I'm sorry I wasn't able to get around to commenting as I have had a houseful with the triplets and mom and dad as they are waiting for their house to close in Portland and their house here already closed. In addition to that, I am in the process of putting my house on the market. So my house is a disaster. Lol...We are going to move down to Portland too as I don't want to miss one minute of the babies growing up, plus you all know my Bff, Colleen is down there too. So it is a win, win for me.
The topping is to cover the card.
I used Altenew's Whimsical Flowers & Totally Tropical in CP inks.
The banner and sentiment are PTI's
So excited to be your STB Party Surprise Guest again for the month of June
So I do not remember or couldn't find the stamp set that I used to make this card.
But I embossed in clear over Versafine Black Ink and watercolored with Distress Inks.
This is a card I made at our recent retreat using the Cut Up technique that Nancy presented at the retreat. It was from a video that Jennifer McGuire made.
Please join us to build up your birthday cards and come look at all of the lovely creations made by the team.
