Blue and Silver Birthday

 Hello my friends, I hope you are enjoying your day and not too much inundated with snow and other winter weather. I had hoped to travel to New Jersey this week to attend funeral services for my older brother who passed away on January 13 after a very short battle with COVID and other lung issues. The weather there was to be pretty bad and neither my daughter (who was going to go with me) nor I have any experience in driving in that kind of weather. I plan to go there later in the year in the summer to have a nice visit with the East coast family.

Today I have a card to share with you for the SCS Creative Card Chicks. We are a group that like to have fun with creating our cards. Each month there is a hostess and she sends out a kit to the rest of the members and we each make at least one card and post it on SCS between the 21st and 23rd of the month. January was an open month in having a kit hostess so I volunteered to give a challenge to the group instead of sending out a kit which I'll do later in the year. My challenge to them was to make a card using light blue, dark blue, and silver. I ended up adding a bit more color to my card because I liked this designer paper.

I don't know why I can never get a good photo of my cards. This one is a little lopsided. 

Materials Used:

  • Image - My Favorite Things - Birthday Cutie
  • Sentiment - MFT - Birthday Cutie (on inside of card)
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Baja Breeze, Midnight Muse, Silver; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Bo Bunny - Prairie Chic collection
  • Accessories - Recollections - Flower and lace; Martha Stewart punch; silver gel pen
  • Copic Markers - B000, B00; B93, B95, B97; E000, E00, E02; W0, W1, W3; Y11, Y26, Y28, Y32

That's it for today. I've been busy making a bunch of cards that I need to get posted, so I'll probably have some more soon.


  1. Such a pretty card Maggie - I too often get lopsided photos - most frustrating!
    Stay safe

  2. Maggie, this is so sweet. Your image is darling and your colors look fabulous!

  3. Oh, my goodness, she's darling! I like the sketchy look of this stamp, and your coloring rocks as always. I'm sorry to hear about your brother and that you weren't able to attend his funeral. My heart is with you.

  4. This is adorable. I am so sorry about your brother, Maggie. Sending hugs.

  5. Pretty. I like the wonkiness. I often tilt my cards just a bit... draws the eye.

  6. Your image is adorable, and the picture is fine. Love the DP. You are so masterful at coloring! I am so sorry for your loss, and so sorry you will miss the service, and I am with you about driving with the bad weather forecast!
