Happy Birthday Jodi!



It is Jodi Collins birthday and the Prettie Girls are having a party pretties style to help celebrate by having a virtual birthday party blog hop.

We would love for you to join us in our virtual birthday blog hop by starting on Christie Ortman's blog. All the Prettie Girls were asked to bring something along for the party ... my contribution was the presents ... a girl can never have too many presents right!

This last few days since Christmas I have been playing with some of my new toys that I received. One of the things I got was a Copic airbrushing kit and compresser ... so of course I had to play with that to make my card and I also had to play with some new stamps I received too! I probably need lots more practise on the airbrushing .... I airbrushed the grey road and the blue sky .... but it was fun playing.

For this card I used Sophie from the "Trim the Tree" set ... I just love this image ... but I removed the bauble from her hand ... it looks like she is reaching out at one of the presents or the balloons.

The other stamps used here are from Clear Dollar Stamps ... and consists of 3 different sets all made to co-ordinate with the bug set.

Here is the inside of my card .... I used the part of the sentiment from the set "Bugs & Fishes". Seeing the car on the front is a "bug" I figured this sentiment worked for this card. The stripe on the left side of the card hides the backs of the brads I attached to the front of my card.

Well it is time to leave me and continue on your virtual birthday blog hop by hoping over to Jessie Rone's blog. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the party festivities!
