HAPPY BIRTHDAY WAFFLES!!!


It’s our fabulous boss lady aka Kellie Winnell’s Birthday! We are having a the most fun surprise hop for her, and believe me when I say SURPRISE we have Such a great surprise up our sleeves for this amazingly talented kind hearted, generous boss/friend of ours.

The pink ladies, including international have joined forces with lil Lolita boutique for this fun birthday hop day!

The Gorgeous Debbie had an idea and approached Christine the designer of our gorgeous Lolitas, and on the sly asked if she would design a KELLITA! Then Debbie let Kristy in on the secret and asked if she would like to help, of course Princess said yes! So together Debbie & Kristy sent pictures and ideas of what Kellita should look like....... So lets begin the hop so you can see our fabulous Kellita Birthday cards and join us in wishing Kellie a very happy birthday!

If you didn’t arrive from Patricia's Blog then go back to the start at Debbies blog and hop along with us.


Now here is the card I made with the gorgeous Kellita. I straight away knew what papers I was gong to use and had her all coloured up to match, but then getting her on a card took weeks... I just had no idea what I was going to do, just that is had to be something a little bit special.
Here is the front...
...and here it is all opened up!

I have tried making these cards twice before, the first time was for my mums birthday but it was terrible and it got scrapped before I had really got anywhere with it. The second time I finished it but HATED it! This one I am actually really happy with, I guess that's because it's bright and colourful with flowers and bling and butterflies :) and it came together surprisingly quickly once I figured out what I was going to do!

I hope you like it too Kellie!!

Now of course what is a hop without prizes??? 2 lucky commenters will get the chance to win this SPECIAL EDITION KELLITA!!! All you have to do is comment on each card. The winners will be announced on Wednesday the 7th August on the Tickled Pink Blog.

Next stop on the hop is Maya!

{Please note Kellita is a limited edition digi and is not for sale}

Hahahahaha, nice picture, one of them isn't looking at the camera though, get it right or get replaced, butt face!!! That's what I'd say if I were taking the pix I mean....

I love your fold/splice action here, the colours are gorgeous and the embellies are to die for!! I am certain that the real-life Kellita had to wipe the drool off of her chin when she opened your lovely creation ;)

Margaret said...

I love these kinds of cards! Haven't made one yet though... This inspires me to work on one though. :-) The bling on the right side is so perfect for that spot. You did an awesome job! Thanks for sharing!
