Happy (early) Birthday to Jessica!!


It's Jessica Knutsen's (the amazing talent behind There She Goes Clear Stamps)  Birthday later on this week but with sneak peeks for TSG starting tomorrow, we wanted Jessica to have a day all to herself!! She deserves it!!! So SURPRISE!!!

For my card, I used one of the new releases called "Bombdiggity" that was released at the end of April.  The image was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I ended up masking the girl so that I could add the bombs in behind her.  And surprise, I've watercolored the image with Tombow Markers.  My card started out using Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge but I ended up veering away from it (the image panel was too big and the fishtails wouldn't fit (BOO).

Before I send you on your way, I just want to wish Jessica a very happy birthday!!!! Jessica is one of the sweetest and most loyal friends I have and I'm more than honored that I can call Jessica my friend.  I've had the opportunity to get together with Jessica on a few different occasions and I'm always sad to leave.  I probably shouldn't mention she makes one mean margarita!!! Thank you Jessica for being the person you are!!! There's no one out there like you! Love ya!!!!

Jessica truly is "the bomb"!
