It's your Birthday!

Hi everyone,

Tomorrow is my mother's birthday and I wanted something nice for her and it's her 65th birthday. That's a big deal in the Netherlands, because then you retire. Despite the party I organized for my parents last weekend (thanks for all the sweet messages I received about it! Super sweet of you!), I don't want to come empty-handed. My mother loves chocolate, so I brought some chocolate for her. She literally eats that everyday!







I'm entering this tag to the following challenges:


  • Compendium of Curiosties 2 Challenge (Faded Layers Technique)
  • Our Creative Corner (Color Challenge)
  • Paper Take Weekly (Anything goes)
  • Inspiration Journal (Bring on the May Flowers)


  • I had so much fun making this tag, although I wasted 2 other tags making it. The Heidi Swapp Ghost Shapes are a bit to thick for this technique, and I used a clear stamp that was to soft. And finally I got it! I love the techniques in Tim's Book.



    Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

    Hugs,
    Sandra
