Birthdays Everyday

It seems that a lot of my friends and family members are having birthdays this week, including me!  Mine was Sunday and I had a great day.  The weather was gorgeous and David treated me to blueberry pancakes for breakfast and a yummy steak dinner for supper.  I received many cards in the mail and wishes on Facebook.  I do thank you all and appreciate you thinking of me on my special day.  So, in return I created a birthday card to send to each of you via cyberspace.  I hope you like it.

I used the Freshly Made Sketch 106 to create this beauty.  And, I used some of my new "toys".  I just love the Flower Shop stamp set and matching punch from Stampin' Up.  I stamped and punched the
flower image three times in pumpkin pie, rich razzleberry, and tempting turquoise.  I added a daffodil delight brad to the center of each flower to help tie in the strip of dp.  Another new "toy" I used is the large scallop edgelit.  I paper pierced the scallops to fancy it up a bit.  My background dp is from Twitterpated.  The sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes and I punched that out with the word window punch and layered it on a punched piece of rich razzleberry cs using the modern label punch.  The paper doily and ribbon give it just the right amount of girlyness, I think.

Well, that's about it for today.  I hope everyone has a wonderful day, even if it's not your birthday.  Celebrate anyway.  Life is short.  We need to learn to enjoy it more.  Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with some Christmas cards to share.  Yes, I said Christmas cards.  It's never too early to start preparing for the upcoming holidays.

Till then,
