Tickled Pink Blog Hop and Sentimental Sundays - Birthdays

I am lucky enough to have a chance to take part of Tickled Pink Birthday Hop! I am also being a bit cheeky again and rolling two things into this card - Sentimental Sundays challenge for this Sunday is Birthday. It just felt right to join these two in one card!

What a month of previews, releases and giveaways Tickled Pink Stamps has had and now to top it all off a blog hop to go out with a BANG. To join the Pink Party of the year you can start HERE

And WHY is this hop not to be missed? There is a major prize at the wind down of the party, by hopping along you have a chance to win EVERY stamp released during the month of October, that is over 15 stamps, including all the images and sentiments from the first release. If they come in rubber and you want rubber over digi, then you can have rubber. If they only came out in digi then digi it is, it's all up to you and your liking. AND want to know something else? There are hidden candies hiding in within the hop.

If you have come from Yani then your on the right party line.

My card is using one of Lil' Lads - he is called Luca and I LOVE his smug smile and self-assured demeanor!

I made this card for Claire's son Daniel who is on the Autistic Spectrum suffering from Aspbergers Syndrome and can not have a birthday party. So every year before his birthday Claire puts up a card request for him so he could still celebrate. He has been very down this year and I really hope all the cards he will be getting are cheering him up a bit. I'm afraid my card might reach him after it's published on my blog - sorry, Claire!

I coloured Luca with Distress Inks, I really should practice with those more. A lot to learn, too few hours a day!
Daniel's name was stamped with a scrabble pieces rubber alphabet I FOUND in my stash! Yeah. I can SO come upon surprises rooting through different drawers. I cut the pieces out, stuck baker's twine to the back with Sookwang tape and mounted on red card. I think they look pretty cute hanging from the top of the card!

I sponged pretty much every available edge with Fired Brick distress ink. I'm obsessive like that. lol

Now your next party stop is Asa!

Thank you for joining the Tickled Pink Stamps hop and have FUN.

Hugs
