Quick little Birthday

Well I'm only home for a few short days with really no time to do much of anything.  I will then be able to get back to the lake and start working on some cards.  I never even opened my tote for the last 2 weeks.  With the holiday it was all about preparing, cleaning and doting on the grandkids.  I enjoyed every minute with them and miss them already even tho I've only been away from them for 24 hours. LOL
Todays card is a quickie for a friend who has a birthday later this month.  She loves baking and I found this digital image on line a couple years ago and printed it out, threw it in a drawer and forgot about it.  I don't have a laser printer so markers just smudge the heck out of digital images for me so I don't like coloring them but this time I thought I'd try gel glitter pens.  Results were not awful but I don't think I'll do it again.  Since the image was small I decided to put it on a flip card.

I used pinks and purples and a few swirl punches.  The punched border on the sides are from an old Fiskars border punch.  One the inside left I embossed the purple circle with a Happy Birthday embossing folder.  I also used a clear glitter gel pen on top of the swirls and added some bling.
Pretty quick and pretty easy.
Well that's it for today.....I have to get supplies ready for the nursing home.  They have their craft day tomorrow and we are having them decorate rocks for a small "ROCK GARDEN" under the tree in the resident courtyard.  Ought to be a fun....messy day!

Till next time
