Hoppy Birthday Bella!

This has been a crazy week...things are really busy at work getting ready for our trade show next week in Austin, and it's Caleb's last week of first grade. Yesterday was his end of the year party and we had so much fun!! They had banana splits and then went outside to play with bubbles, frisbees, and water balloons! I am so blessed that I can do these things with him even though I work full time.

I did a little stamping today since I had a request for 2 birthday cards. So here they are!
The first card was so fun to make...I'm going to have to practice a little more on my hoppy trails (get it?! LOL) but other than that I like it!
For my Birthday Bella card I used a sketch from a couple of weeks ago from the SCS Sketch Challenge. Flowahbella is outlined with my Sakura Clear Glaze Pen, and the dress trim and polka dots are done with my Sakura Black Glaze Pen. There are stickles on the flowers for a little more bling.

The cards are great, your grasshopper card is fantastic, and Bella well what can one say about Bella is not Bellisimo.

The grass hopper birthday card is cute, I really like what you did with the Bella. I have some ordered, they take sooooo painfully long to get here! I'm used to instant everything I guess.
