Eskimo Glasses Birthday

Happy New Year peeps! I hope that you rang in the New Year with friends or family and that you had a great time doing so! I had a good day yesterday, crafted, FaceTimed with Andrea, ran some errands with Brian and then went over to Brian & Kim’s for the evening! We had fun just hanging out with the kids and the dog watching TV and laughing! I posted this quote on Instagram and Facebook yesterday and I think that it’s a great way to start off the new year…

Brad Paisley Quote

We should all remember that! We have a new chapter to write in our lives and we should make the best one yet! I’m going to begin my year with a day at The Ink Pad!

I thought I would start the year off with a fun bright birthday card! I’m really loving the stickers and paper in the January Simon Says Stamp Card Kit! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a piece of the Doodlebug Polar Pals 6×6 Paper to the card slightly askew for my background. A piece of Solar White 80lb is stamped with the Hero Arts Notebook Page Background Stamp in Simon Says Stamp Hydrangea Ink and the the left edge is cut with the Simon Says Stamp Notebook Edge Craft Dies. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Audrey Blue and Versa-Fine Onyx Black Ink. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I die cut a piece of the Recollections Purple Glitter Paper with the My Favorite Things Die-namics Geek is Chic Glasses Dies and adhered it to the Doodlebug Polar Pals Cardstock Sticker with Multi-Matte Medium. She is then adhered to the card with Foam Tape. A few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Orchid, Marshmallow, Cobalt and Aquamarine Sequins scattered around the girl complete the card! I love the little eskimo and doesn’t she look cuter with the glasses?! I hope that you enjoyed today’s cute little birthday card! Thank you so much for starting your year off with me! I wish you a fantastic Friday and a wonderful New Year flied with all things great! 🙂
