Whimsy Birthday Cake Mouse and SWEET STUFF!!!!



A very happy Saturday to each of you!! I hope you had a great week and are now enjoying your weekend! We are going to have some VERY warm days for the next several and that sounds like great play outside days to me! Almost all of my 180+ rose bushes are blooming and that makes the winter we had all worthwhile!

I made this card for the Whimsy Blog Hop which started on Wednesday and with all the Blogger problems and being out of town I didn't get it on my blog on Wednesday....BUT the Hop, to introduce all of the New May Releases, is running through Wednesday, May 25 so you still have time to hop along and be in the draw for some very nice prizes!!!

For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting and the DP is from Let's Party glitter paper pad by Best Creation Inc. The cute image I used is Meljen's Designs BIRTHDAY CAKE MOUSE from the Whimsy May Release. It was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. I then used Stickles for the flames and candle sparkle, the plate was covered with Glossy Accents, the whipped cream at the bottom of the cake is Liquid Applique, the filling is Pearl Pen, and the frosting is Liquid Pearls. The image was cut out with square and scalloped square Nesties. For the horizontal I used a triple ribbon treatment by topping some chartreuse sparkle satin with some thin hot pink satin, including a fluffy bow made with the same pink ribbon. The front was finished with Recollection gems, adding some tiny squares to the corners of the image panel.



These papers are so sparkly that I wanted to keep the inside very simple as well. I hope you can see all of the glitter on both panels. I used more gems on the jotting panel and the birthday definition sentiment is from the CELEBRATION PENNANTS SENTIMENTS collection.

I hope you like my little creation and, if you haven't visited the Whimsy Blog Hop, you will jump over and check out all of the delightful images from the new May Release!!

SWEET STUFF!!!! ...and now for another touch of Whimsy New Release SWEET STUFF...Gosh!!! I love doing SWEET STUFF for you!!! I hope you like this wee touch of goodies because the Whimsy stamp, from the new May release, is just like the one I have used for my card this time!!! The postcard is from the last release. And all of my FOLLOWERS know that all they have to do is leave their info with the little Blue Froggy...if you don't have a blog, all you have to do is leave your email in a comment below. I will close this one on Monday, May 23 at midnight EST....GOOD LUCK!!!!



1 MM Hullabaloo Mini Book Kit
1 Whimsy Birthday Cake Mouse stamp

Hey Jacque... Lovely creation.. I love the colors.. All of it.. And the inside where the DP is.. Is the paper glittery or have you added glitter separately.. and the jeweled look on the inside is awesome.. It's just wow...

Jacque Cannot see the linky or the blue froggy so am making a request here...Please consider me for the draw..

Have a great weekend,

Hugs,
Khush

Pretty please post a picture of your roses )) We can't grow them here on this island, the constant salt winds put an end to them before they get time to establish, really miss stepping outside on a calm morning and meeting that heady scent of freshly blooming roses.

Hope your keeping well )
