Ooey-Gooey Goodness...

to view an image up-close, please click on the photo

Today we're celebrating a birthday with a surprise hop! If you've hopped over from Karen Motz's Paper Playhouse, a big welcome, and you'll know that Nancy McKinney, illustrator and all-around fabulous lady is one of my inspirations, as she is to many, many paper-crafters out there. Some of you know that I dabble here and there with doodling my own artwork, so, though Nancy's shining talents dim any ability I might possess, I thought I'd draw something in her honor. Since I can't help her party in person, I went with a big, huge, ooey-gooey topsy-turvy cake, complete with some liquid dimensional frosting. Happy Birthday, Nancy, and here's to YOU!

Liquid Pearls make a perfect dimensional frosting
BEAN NOTES:
  • Illustration: "Ooey-Gooey Birthday" (The Stampin' Bean)
  • Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Concord Crush (Stampin' Up!); Solar White (Neenah)
