Happy Birthday Week!

Happy Monday!

I had such a great weekend – hope you did, too!  We didn’t really do anything special, it was just a really nice and productive weekend.  I love it when that happens, don’t you?!!

Happy Birthday Doily

So let’s get down to business.  This week, the ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team is sharing Birthday projects with you all.  Birthday cards are something I never have enough of . . . sadly, sending them is something I have a hard time with, too.  Yeah . . . I pretty much suck at sending birthday cards.  But I love making them!  Weird, huh?!  LOL

I started out with a 5” square card base in Sage Shadow.  The image panel is a 4 3/4” square of Hot Fudge card stock.  Then I stitched two different pattern papers from the Basic Grey “Nook & Pantry” 6 x 6 pad.  Look at that yummy doily border – isn’t it delish?!!  That was trimmed out of a sheet of borders from the same 6 x 6 pad.  Small Self-Adhesive Pearls were added.  I stamped the Hero Arts Circle Doily Cling onto the green piece of pattern paper and added Medium Self-Adhesive Pearls.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear stamp set called Big Hugs.  I used Rich Cocoa ink for all the stamping.  The ribbon is Early Espresso from SU.

STAMPS:  Circle Doily Cling (Hero Arts), Big Hugs (Hero Arts)

That’s it for me today, folks.  I’m off to babysit my grandson.  Hope you have a fabulous rest of the day – I really appreciate you stopping by.
