Happy Birthday Anita....Surprise!


Happy Birthday Anita...are you surprised??? 
This is so much fun to have a surprise birthday party for you, you are one incredible and talented lady.  If you don't know Anita, you have been living under a rock...she is an incredibly talented card maker from France and you can see all of her amazing creations on her blog My Papercraft World. Bev from GottaDoTheHappyDance our fabulous party planner and Darnell from djkardkreations is the Linkie Laday where you can see all the wonderful cards made for Anita.  They are so sweet to have taken the time to organize this surprise birthday bash and so glad I got an invitation to play along.


My card doubles as homework from Day 6 of Clean and Simple - One Layer Cards class. I have to say this was a fun card to make and I used colors that I see Anita use a lot. This was my first attempt as making a graffiti card and I have to say I am pretty happy with it.

  13. Wow! First attempt....awesome! However, I strongly suspect that no matter what crafty project you try, it will always be amazing! You're a natural crafter for sure! I love your choice of images and how you laid down your design. It also looks like you did some masking as well ???

  23. This looks amazing!! I really enjoyed doing my first Graffiti card too. I love that you covered the whole card, not just over a die-cut as per the class. You put together an incredible number of sentiments that don't look out of place together.......And I bet Anita LOVED it!! I also heard its your birthday....hope you were spoilt rotten and ate your weight in cake!!!!

  25. You had stopped over and left some awesome comments on my blog (Paws to Scrap) so I had to come over and check out your blog. This card just grabbed me. The combination of those stamps is fabulous. Love the musical note background. So glad you stopped by my blog, as now I've had the opportunity to find you and see your amazing work. (Can I also say I'm terribly jealous that you have Mickey Mouse themed craft room!)
