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.
