Kendall Turns 7

Good Day To You My Creative Friends!

I know, long time no see, huh?  Oh my goodness!  My husband and I decided to take advantage of a Memorial Day sale and purchased new flooring for our living room, dining room and kitchen.  (What we had was 30 years old and really gross).  That one purchase kicked off one heck of a renovation.  We decided to paint too and found that we needed to repair a wall and part of the ceiling from water damage sustained before putting the new roof on.  While we were replacing studs and drywall, why not put in a fireplace?  There had already been one there before, how hard could it be? o_O  So all new paint, baseboards, doors, knobs, curtains, rods, light switches, outlets, covers, an area rug, is just the tip of the iceberg to name some of the extra purchases.  We're not even close to done but it already looks so different.  Anyway, this project has taken up all of my time when I'm not at work so card making has been on the back burner but, oh, how I've been missing it.

I did manage to get a little something done for my sweet niece Kendall.  This is my first pocket page and I hope you all like it.

I ran out of time and did not get to take photos of my project out of the pockets, but you get the general idea here.  I used lots of beautiful Magnolia dies and this sweet stamp called Have Dinner With Me Tilda.

Here is a close-up of the cake from the DooHickeys Club Volume 5

I free-handed the beverage cup but used several Magnolia dies for accents.  On the back side of this panel I included a Starbucks gift card so Kendall could have her favorite treat, Lemon Cake and an ice cold Milk.

Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20  Blouse & Bow: BG07  Roses: R37  Leaves: G46  Hair: YR21, YR31, E35, E37

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.  I hope you are having a wonderful summer and I will see you again real soon.

Laura, This is a perfect Pocket Letter. I just love it and know your niece will too. I love that particular Tilda so much and you have coloured her beautifully. I love the gifts you have tucked in the pockets and the Happy Birthday Banner across the top.
Fantastic work!
