a happy birthday card

Happy Birthday To You

Can you ever have enough birthday cards? This card is just some playing around. If I had to pick a starting place, it would be the rose trim. I picked it up a long time ago at a fabric store. Isn’t it beautiful? I paired the trim with papers from Basic Grey and Anna Griffin. The stamps are from Waltzing Mouse and Papertrey Ink.

Its once again been crazy around here. We sold our house in MN (yayayay!!), I did Spellbinders demos at the local scrapbooking store for National Scrapbooking Day, and I came down with some serious crud and spent a couple days in bed. Which all of you moms know, just isn’t good. On the positive side, the little man has started to “read” me books. He has them memorized and what isn’t memorized, he is using the pictures to fill in the rest of the story. This former reading teacher is very proud!! And my special news is coming this week! I cannot wait until Thursday!!

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps (Waltzing Mouse-Very Vintage Labels No. 4), Papertrey Ink (Turning a New Leaf), Patterned paper (Basic Grey-Boxer, Anna Griffin), Cardstock (Papertrey Ink-Rustic White, Enchanted Evening), Ink (Palette-L’Amour, Jardin Moss, Burnt Umber), Trim (Hancock-Laura Hancock Collection), Pearls (Hero Arts), Spellbinders die templates (Labels 4)

What a pretty card! Roses and Anna Griffin are just made for each other. I've got "crud" too. Started with a sore throat on Sat night and now coming home from work early both yesterday and today. This is awful! Yuck! But, again, I'm so happy for you that your sold your house.
