FCD A Little Birdie Told Me Birthday Card

Happy New Year!!
It seems like it  has been forever since I posted.  I've been busy purging and cleaning my house for the new year.  Getting a few things organized, like my birthday list.  I have vowed to send more cards out this year, instead of hoarding them.  So I have generated a birthday list to keep me on track.  I have tons of birthday cards to make. How do you like the one above?  I'm still trying to get used to using the copics.  Man those things are addicting.  A friend and I found an awesome deal ($4 each for sketch) and we just ordered a few more.  I told DH this could be my wedding anniversary gift.  Yes, most women want diamonds, flowers, candy ...  I want markers, teehee.  I know you girls get it. 

Well as I mentioned above, I've been purging, organizing closets, cleaning the grout (yuck).  I don't know what it is about the new year that makes me want to do this, but I do.  How about you?
I've missed being crafty, playing along with challenges and blog hopping the last couple of weeks.  But now with the holidays wrapping up, I'm ready to GO!!  Time to get my priorities straight, teehee!

This week for my FCD post I'm sharing with you this cute little "Happy Birday" set!!
You can check out the "A Little Birdie Told Me" set at the FCD store HERE.
Paper : My Minds Eye 8x8 Paperpad (1/2 price from Hobby Lobby)  I love the colors of this pad (brown, yellow, aqua, very light lime green)
Ink : Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate (my most used ink pad after Palette Noir and Burnt Umber)
Thick and juicy pigment ink with a slight shimmer ( I sound like I'm at a wine tasting, teehee)
Takes forever to dry though.
Ribbon : my stash
Faux stitching : Close To My Heart stamp from years ago.
Tag punch : Paper Shapers
Spellbinders Labels 1 die set (I am getting ALOT of use out of this one)

That's all for now!  I hope you weekend is a great one!

I am going to resist buying any new paper, stamps kits or ephemera until I've used up a lot of my stash...but you, Missy, do not make this easy. This is adorable. Love, love, love it!

Happy New Year, Melisa! I love the rich colors in your card, and your layout is so eye pleasing. I've been cleaning out and reorganizing too. Feels great to start the new year with less clutter. Hee, hee - I've received Copics for my birthday and wedding anniversary too! Jewelry and flowers, who needs 'em? Give me crafting supplies, and I'm a happy girl! Looking forward to seeing you at the Crafty Secrets challenges!
