Happy Bird-Day Card!

Here's one more! Yep, this marathon's still going, but it will probably end pretty soon. Back to class on Monday. This one week break has not felt like a break at all. Even though I didn't do any study (purposefully so I get a good rest), I don't feel all that rested up. In fact, I feel even more tired and miserable (maybe I shouldn't have worked those 2 days?) :(

So a happy card today to make it all better!

Yes, another Tiny Treats card. I'm in love with those super cute wee images and can't get over colouring them in! I actually had to go out and get pencil sharpeners today so I could colour things in better (I couldn't find any at home!!!).

I think the colours make it look more like a baby card more than anything else, but who cares, it's cute. I'm sure some girl will love it.

To be really honest with you. I've seen someone's project that looks very very much like this before. I just can't remember where! I've tried searching all over PTI DT's blogs and the Gallery and gave up. If anyone knows where the idea popped from, do let me know.

I also tried to do more of the colouring pencil MIM (why not) and went and tried to shade in the edges of the pink cardstock... didn't really go down all that well. It's subtle, it's sort of there, but didn't really come out the way I was hoping to.

Here's a closer view. I just like this angle. There's a wee camera flare (I won't call it a lens flare since it's actually sunlight reflected off the camera lol) just so you know we've had some amazing sunny days ;)

That's it for the last day of my break! Thanks for poppin' by again!

PS - It's actually Fathers' Day here today. I didn't make a card for Dad. My family does not appreciate cards all that much. There's a high chance of them ending up in the recycling bin, so I used to add card liners and write in there. Then they could keep the liner and give back the card for me to re-use later LOL But anyway, we got Dad a gas stove (highly needed after all our earthquakes/aftershocks + power cuts and what else!)

Cute card. I do love that pink color. Doesn't remind me of baby at all; just very feminine. Love the little balloon in the chick's mouth.
