Tinkerbell Birthday

So next Monday is the birthday of my youngest niece. My sister's baby. She will be 5 (goin on 15). And she is theee girliest girl ever. She loves pink and anything sparkly. Did I mention glitter? This girl loves glitter. And she loves Tinkerbell. She has decided her birthday shall have a Tinkerbell theme. (Yes, I said that right. She decided. LOL) As she lives on the other side of the country (much to my great dismay. No, sadness. I wish I could be with her on her birthday.  Maybe another year. This year in particular it's not happening. On Monday I shall be attending my daughter's graduation from college! But we'll talk about that in another post.) So I have sent the gifts already but I have to send the card and some tags for those presents - so at least I'll be there in spirit. And this child will be expecting an Aunt Tracy card dontchaknow.

Now, I don't have any Tinkerbell stamps. I don't even know if one exists. But the internet is a wonderful thing. I found a cute project online to make a magic wand that has Tinkerbell on it. I briefly toyed with making that magic wand (cos I know this kid would love it but I feared it would be crushed in transit) but decided to use the images to make a card and some tags. For the card I printed out the project itself. The main framed Tinkerbell and a separate star image. I cut those out and glued them together. I added some cardstock that I ran through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing folder. I used some foam tape to pop the main image up. I found a cute font and printed out the sentiment and handcut it to make a banner. And of course I had to add some glitter. In Photoshop I took the image of Tinkerbell herself and printed out a few and ran them through the Big Shot with PTI's Tag Sale #3. They really look cute - and I know she'll love it.
Alright that's all for today. I will be back to show you the graduation cards I made for my daughter. Yes, they're already done. I had to get them done ahead of time as we're heading out of town on Thursday for NYC. What's going on in NYC? Well that is a good question - and I'll be back to tell you :-) (It's "Proud Mom" stuff :-))
Thanks for stopping by. Have a good one!
