Just Christmas and Birthday Cards #44 & Cupcake Craft Challenges #56
Of course my first thought when I read the Cupcake Craft Challenge was to use red, white & blue, was "stars & stripes" and all things patriotic. But then, I was in a mood to go out on a limb! So, I went with a lighter blue and steered clear of all things patriotic. Then I figured while I was out there on the limb anyway, I might as well attempt the the sketch over at Just Christmas and Birthday cards. All those circles and swirls really threw me for a loop!! The blue & white elements on this card are out of that Target $1 bin set...I'm telling you, that's been one of my favorite purchases of the summer! The square red brads were another "deal" from the Tulsa scrapbook convention. And the flowers are looking glass stickers from Making Memories. My birthday sentiment is from Stamping Up's Blooming With Happiness set.
I'm mom to four fabulous children who make me very proud! I've been married to Wayne, the love of my life, for 28 years...we sure are enjoying our "empty nest". I teach Kindergarten...probably the funnest job ever, I'm amazed each month that I get a paycheck for doing something I love so much. I'm writing this blog to share my new found hobby & passion...card making!
