Happy Birthday Maxine!

I know you are on FB, so I hope you don't see this card out there before you get your hands on it, but I make NO promises....I'll admit...i can make 'em, but I'm ALWAYS late sending them out!

Hehehe....Max is my long lost BFF from high school and after too many years apart we rekindled our friendship last year at a high school reunion! how cool is that! I had two inseparable friends thru high school and even if I don't see or talk to them for years, they will always remain close to me and I think of them often! So for your b'day Max, cheers to you! Have a burnt weenie sundae on me...k!


Alrighty, I'm a couple days early for Maxine's b'day cause it really isn't till Friday, but my challenge animal card wouldn't have fit in well with her b'day cause it is no where near a b'day card unless your b'day falls on a holiday. just hinting! {grin} For Max's card I chose Ida Lulu with the Hot Stuff sentiment cause Max is HOT just like Ida, although the the striking difference between the two of them is Max is a natural blonde. hehehehe! oh well...they are both still hot!

I paired up Ida with Basic Grey origins paper, stamped her with brilliance ink on Bella's bestest paper and used the following copic markers...but as always I 'cheated' a bit and added shading with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. And be sure to click on the image to get an up close look at her specs....the frames were coloured over with a pink atyou spica pen and the lenses covered with glossy accents! I wish I still had the card in front of me so I could have one last look!

Now that my personal business is out of the way, I have some exciting Babe news...have you seen Emily's post?....Our newest babes are...drumroll paleeze......
Don't you just love how you can create new words and names just by adding 'abella' to the end! LOLOLOLOL!!!! It was sooooooo hard picking every week, you have no idea how stressful it was. I don't know the final tally's, but I do know that it was very close....i wonder if other babes had the same idea as me and picked different people every week! .....there was NO clear fav and it was SO MUCH FUN to see all the bella love pouring in. So, my advice gals is keep it up....keep sending us that bella love every week because for me, it makes my Friday work day go that much quicker checking in every so often to see if Em has the posts up yet! Kudo's to everyone who played along and never ever give up!!!

That's it for now, we are moving Derek to Hamilton today...one down and one to go and then I'll take a well deserved month off of cooking! Know any good restaurants in the Windsor/Chatham/London area?
