Pickle Post #43 - Yoo Hoo! We have a winner! :)

Hi there! How are you, my friends? Smiley

Sorry I have been SO absent. Again. A lot of stuff drops onto my plate sometimes and time gets away from me. Between allergy headaches (evil twins of MIGRAINES), work, the lovely Arizona heat (up to 113 degrees this week) and a very sick kitty, I have been pretty tapped out.

So I haven't posted ANY birthday cards. Great way to celebrate my own blog birthday, huh?
I also realized I forgot to choose the winner of my blog candy! UGH...SO SORRY.
Well, I always say better late then never! So let's play catch up!

This birthday card was created for my brother - created with a private joke between us in mind.
The sentiment (by Paper Smooches) actually reads 'Woo Hooo', but I changed it to 'Yoo Hooo' as this is how we say hello to each other LOL! Here's what I created.

My 'Happy Bird Day' Card:
Some of my favorite techniques are used here - paper piecing, Copic coloring...and my favorite kraft cardstock. I just LOVE this chubby owl. And the party bird on the inside just cracks me up! Paper Smooches are by far some of my all time favorite stamps. So fun and so darn cute!

Stuff I Used:
Stamps - Paper Smooches Chubby Chums & Birthday Buddies
Paper - Basic Grey Offbeat & Marjolaine, A Muse Studio Kraft CS
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa
Dies - MFT Die-Namics Branch with Leaves, Nesties Circles
Copics - BG72, BG75, BG78, YR12, YR65, E47

**Without further delay - the winner of my Blog Birthday Candy is...ELINE JANSENS!**  
She is one of my new blog buddies! Please check out her new blog - she is VERY talented!
Eline - please contact me (there's a link on my sidebar) with your mailing address.  Congrats! Smiley

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of you for your kind comments, for sharing my blog candy, for following me and for being my crafty friends! You are proof that it's a small world after all! Smiley
I have more posts in the works, so stay tuned! Thank you for stopping by!
