Sweet Besties



To celebrate a sweet Birthday


Happy Monday from Skyway Drive. I send out Birthday and Anniversary cards every week, about 170 a year. Generally I am about two months ahead on making them, and have a ridiculously organized file system for them. Anyway……..apparently I’ve been slacking and yikes! I am only two weeks ahead. So my goal this week is to catch up on Birthday cards.


Sweet Besties from My Favorite Things has two simple and sweet dancers along with some really useful sentiments!


I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and colored them with Copic’s. Very carefully! You do not want to really touch your marker to embossing. I generally only do this if the area is very small, like these flowers. I added Nuvo crystal drops in Buttermilk for the centers.
