Happy 233rd Birthday!

233 years… quite an accomplishment!

Our kids are all away from us right now… the 2 youngest are at Scout Camp, so it fels kind of weird not to have 4th of July plans. We aren’t going over to friends this year, we just didn’t plan very well I guess… so I got up, watered and weeded, loaded the dishwasher and sat down to make my daughter a birthday card. Unfortunately it’s a belated birthday card, but I had to wait for a certain something to come in the mail which didn’t arrive until after her BD.

This is the sketch from 2Sketches4You this week —2s4u_laura_29

Mine is made with papers and a sticker from Jenni Bowlin; Stamps are Star Struck, Simple Stitches and Classroom Alpha from CTMH. I’ve used a lace punch from SU! and miscellaneous embellies.

Thanks so much for looking!

Here is a 5″ x 7″ birthday card that I made for my cousin Jana who I will get to see in Las Vegas this weekend, YAY! I’ve used CTMH papers called “Let’s Get Together”. The stamp image is from Magnolia and it’s a Tilda stamp I think — I just can’t remember the name of it… I love her little hat. I just colored her in with regular colored pencils. Ribbons and button are from my stash; the corner punch and slot punch are both from Stampin Up! and the sentiments are also from CTMH. Thanks for looking!
