I’m the Life of the Party

Hi everyone!  Now that I’m kind of “in between” releases, I wanted to take some time to play.  :)

This week is Bugab0o‘s FIRST birthday, and although I don’t didn’t have many of their digi-images, this week they’re on sale for 60% off (through January 22nd), so I did a bit of shopping.  It’s all Jeanie‘s fault.  😉   I totally blame her… and her frog (…had to buy that image too).

Bugaboo has challenges all week long and today’s challenge is to make a birthday card.  I’m going with snarky Stella, Life of the Party …because this is almost “me.”  Ok…in a few years, lol.  (I didn’t buy anything TOO snarky, but I did laugh at all of them.  And trust me, I am NEVER the life of the party.  EVER.  I’m a quiet observer.)

I’m the Life of the Party

I  colored her with markers, added a bit of ground with pencils and used an older SFYTT that I’ve used many times before.  (It’s a fave of mine.)

To add just a little extra something, I colored over Stella’s glasses and balloon with a clear 3-d glaze pen.  (Those parts aren’t sparkly, just shiny.)

I’ll be back tomorrow with another Bugaboo birthday card…a very simple one.  (Simple is ok, right?)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
