Well I did make some cute birthday cards this week. I like making like 3 or 4 at a time using the same image but just changing the colors and layout just a bit. So for these I used a super adorable stamp from Stamping Bella -they have such super cute images- ok so this one is Abby and she is holding balloons and a cupcake and dressed in her party dress. So let me say that I did get a lil picky with three of the cards because I used my markers to color the image using different colors, not just black. Yes it was a bit time consuming but I really liked the final result. So then I just did one where I stamped the image in black. All were colored in using some colored pencils or my Stampin' Up markers. I added some embellishments and layered them with some pretty patterned paper and done. My wish list has the copic markers on it, but for now I use what I have :0)
Here are some pics....

a little something to the inside also
another card I made using Stampin' Up! stamps
and ink, not not sure who's paper it was though.
Like I said one day I hope to have a collection of the Copic markers to do the coloring on the card images because those markers are amazing for that, but I only have four at the moment.
