Tingla Baby!!

I'm afraid today's is going to be a quick post! This is supposed to be my weekend off but I am working 9-5pm today for a girl who needed the day off. Poo.

This is a card that I made for my friend Ellen! She just became a grandma for the very first time to a beautiful little girl named Tabitha. So I pulled out a stamped image from my friend Tara, as I don't have this particular stamp.....shocking, I know! But she stamped it for me on my favourite cardstock, using my favourite ink....she's so thoughtful!! I'm sure you can recite it by heart by now, but in case you are new to my blog, I LOVE Wausau bright white cardstock and Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink for using with my Copic markers. I did buy some Georgia Pacific cardstock that I found the other day, quite by accident at a liquidation place, so I'll try that out soon and let you know how I make out!

Anyhoo, the card base is Pretty in Pink and the sparkly patterned paper is from one of those DCWV Stacks, although I can't remember which one. And the scalloped edge is in So Saffron and I made it using my corner rounder. The ribbon is a satiny polka dot pink by American Crafts and the sentiment layer is done using my different punches and the Riveting stamp set. I pop dotted Tingla and added some highlights using my white gel pen.

Well, I'd best be off to work now....I'm sure it's going to be another exciting day with patrons galore!! Emileigh is all done her exams and is off for the summer, so she is having a couple of girlfriends sleep over tonight. Al bought her a 5-person tent and he set it up in the backyard yesterday. They plan to spend the night in the tent but I'm thinkin' it just might rain so they'll probably end up on my livingroom floor!! Hahaha!

Have a lovely Saturday!!
