Happy Birthday to Nina Collins!!!!
This blog post is extra special because it marks the birthday of our dear friend Nina Collins!! I actually have a lot to thank Nina for (even though she may not know it), because it was her birthday card that got me in gear with drawing digi stamps.
Although there are a plethera of fairy themed stamps, both digi and rubber, and I do own many of each, I was given the challenge by my other half to draw a fairy image especially for Nina. Some of you may have seen the image in the Crafty Boots Shop already, but this is her debut in colored form.
The image is colored with Pro and Flex Markers, and it is one of the (now many) Daffy's Digis available only @ Crafty Boots. I am sure Nina won't mind if her special fairy is available to others :)
The flowers are from a bundle I got from Create and Craft. As I said in a previous post, I love these flowers and should have bought two bundles...or three...or four. The colors are gorgeous and the detail is really amazing. I used various papers from my stash including K&C, Create and Craft. The sentiment is from Hunkydory. I cut the shaped layers using a Grand Nestie. Since I didn't particularly want to make an enormous card, I decided to have the layers extend over the top of a half A4 landscape card. I still had to make a custom envelope, but I was hoping the entension would give it a bit of 'lift'.
Happy Birthday to you Nina!!!! I hope you have a wonderful day and an even more wonderful year to come!!
