Happy Birthday!!

I'm just way too tired to think of a witty title :)   Busy time of year for me, Ye Mom of THREE December birthday daughters, has been given an even more busier schedule than usual!  But I am reminded daily of all the blessings being busy brings, so no complaints!  Sleep would be good though, lol!  

For this month swap in the 'hood (otherwise lovingly known as the S.O.T.C on SCS - that's a tongue twister right there!), our lovely hostess Maryann asked us to create a girl birthday card in honor of her g'daughter's birthday and with a twist!  That's right ... a twist - any twist!  twisted ribbon, twisted flowers ...... I was so caught up in festivities and rushed my cards to the deadline so my idea fell to the side and I went with twisted TWINE .... original and creative I am not this month, hee hee!


Using this adorable PI bday girl, I just paired it with some SU papers and cardstock, run through the CB swiss dots - YEP!!  Same one you might have seen me put an APB out on on Facebook.  After these were mailed off, I needed it again and looked ALL afternoon - until I picked up a mat stack off the floor and there it was, under that.  How it got THERE ... not a clue but stranger things have happened in my scraproom!  ;)

My dd's have their concert #2 of 3 in about an hour and they brought two extra kiddos over and they are all getting ready.  5 girls in one room.  Can we say big time fun! :)

Big love, big hugs
and Bigger Blessings!

  21. What a precious card! The pinks are just perfect and I love the way the balloon "ends" at the edge of the mat.
    Phew - 3 December birthdays!! All my children were born in August - but I don't have Christmas to contend with in there too! ENJOY the month and all the blessings it holds for you and your family.
