Happy Birthday CLP!!!

Hello my friends!  I pray you are having a wonderful weekend.  Today, I'm attending a Donor's Luncheon with a dear friend who lost her daughter about a year and half ago.  This is the first time she is able to go on behalf of her daughter, so a group of us girls are accompanying her.  Such an emotional time... I know that the LORD is bringing healing to her soul, but it sure is a long and hard road!  I pray today for anyone who has lost a loved one.  I send you heart hugs and ask the LORD to surround you and comfort you!

Thank you so much for joining me today as we celebrate CLP's First Birthday!!!  We have such a talented and sweet group of girls, you'll surely be WOWed at the fabulous creations they have on display!  I'd like to give a big shout out first to Chelsea for her amazing sketches.  If you haven't joined in the Sketch Challenges yet, you are missing out!  You can find the Challenge Blog Here.

If you've come from Dunja's Blog, you are right on track.  If you didn't start at the beginning, you'll want to head over to Maria's Blog.

Please join me in welcoming some new faces to the CLP DT.  Each of these lovely ladies bring such JOY and talent to the team.  They are:
 

Welcome Sweeties!!!
And now for my card to celebrate this happy occasion!  I decided that I just HAD to use Sweet Mischief Peeker by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD for this Birthday Celebration : )  Isn't she darling?  The cake may be just out of reach right now, but you can be sure that she gets her share of the yummy goodness!
I must know... is your mouth watering as much as mine right now? lol!  This is an angel food cake, which is my dear friend's favorite cake.  It is covered with a light strawberry glaze/whipped cream and topped with strawberries :)  I know that they look round, but as long as we're pretending, I say they are strawberries!  The glaze/whipped cream topping is drenched in Diamond Glaze and the strawberries, flowers, hearts and clothing accents were given the customary Stickle treatment : )

Copics used: E49 E59 E25 E53, R85 R83 R81 RV000, BG18 BG13 BG11 BG10 BG000 C1
Of course, I've used Chelsea's FABULOUS sketch!!!  I had so much fun with this sketch, I'm on my way soon to create another card with this same sketch :)  DP is Madeline by Prima.  Roses are a combination of Wild Orchid and Prima.  The ticket is from Whimsy Stamps and the sentiment inside is from the Forever Friends set by JustRite.  I also used the ticket die from Whimsy.  This is the first time I've used it and I needed to make some adjustments to get it cut out just right.  Now that I'm familiar with it, I can see how convenient it is!  Me thinks you may be seeing more tickets on my cards in the future... I know - I'm usually the last one to get on board with new products.  These have been around for awhile, but I still like em!

Cute cute cute border punch by MS... Gorgeous pink pearls from my Rose Paper Pen : )  If this is the first time you're visiting me, you must know that I am in TOTAL LOVE with my Paper Pens!!!  They are by Viva Decor and come in a variety of colors.  The most used color for me is P I N K - is there any other color? hee hee!
