~HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTAH~

Happy Birthday to my sweet sister Sheri!! Her birthday is officially tomorrow, but I wanted to get this card up and I won't be able to send it out until tomorrow :( I'm a horrible procrastinator! Maybe that'll be my new year goal for next year lol either way, I hope she has a wonderful and Happy Birthday!!!

And now back to my card.....
 I just loved this image!! It's Birthday Marci from La-La Land Crafts! Isn't she just the cutest??? I recently took a copic class from Wendy Ramlakhan and figured this would be the perfect image to practice what she taught me! Unfortunately for me, my brain isn't what it used to be lol BUT I think she turned out quite alright! Hair and skin are two of my weaknesses with Copics, so that just means practice, practice, practice and more practice. But with the help of this cute little image and Wendy's patience, I've found a new love for my Copics and not just intimidation anymore...So I guess that's a good thing! 
I also tried my hand at Rosettes. This was my first one. Yes I have the Tim Holtz Dies, and even the Memory Box dies, but I wanted a certain size, so this one was done the old fashioned way...using my hands and my score board. Somehow a few didn't turn out quite that great, I'm sure it was operator error lol but this one was perfect I think!!
Ok enough babbling...I'll leave you with a few more pictures and the inside poem that I found on the web and used. 
Thanks for looking and have a great Monday!!!

 I wanted to include a picture of the back of my card as well. I got these awesome Personalized Labels from The Cutting Cafe! You just tell Regina what you want, she sends the file, and then you print them out! You can do sheets at a time, or just a few. I'm cheap on some things, and why would I want to spend $$$ on a personalized rubber stamp, when I can spend a few dollars and get more than one design! So anyways, just check it out, you'll see what I'm talking about!! :)
