Happy Birthday Gerda!

Good Morning!  If you didn't guess from my title, it is Gerda's birthday!

We, the DT at Stamp Fairy have created a little surprise birthday blog hop in her honour!  If you have arrived here from Karen's Blog, you are on the right track!  If you want to see the whole party, then hop back to the Stamp Fairy Blog and get started!

Each of us has a special part to play in the party, mine being one of the most important of all....FOOD!!


Since it is a gorgeous summery day, I thought that some sweet watermelon would be delicious for a party.  I used Lenny Fruits as my image, and began by printing him on SU Whisper White.  I printed him out twice, so I could layer the watermelon, and make it pop!

I used papers from the Echo Park Summer Days collection, and then added the sweet sentiment.

Oh - I almost forgot....if you want to win this image, make sure you leave me a comment, and wish Gerda a Happy Birthday!

Next up is Jackie!

Happy Birthday Gerda!!  Hope you enjoy your day!

supplies
stamps - lenny fruits (stamp fairy), buckets of love (there she goes)
paper - kraft, whisper white, melon mambo, echo park summer days
other - copics, nestabilities, clear glaze pen
