A Birthday Card & Sneak Peek

Happy day after Christmas! Did you get everything that you wanted? I certainly did! I got to spend the first part of the day with my family. I have some pictures for you too. The second half of the day Andrew came by and we just hung out. He is doing well, just some eye discomfort. We also had a Jewish Christmas dinner as he put it, Chinese food! I hope that all of you had equally wonderful Christmas days! I did get to see my little nephew yesterday too. In the first picture you can see that he is hanging on my every word! LOL!


Either that or he is thinking what is this nut talking about! Oh, and if you look on the wall behind me you can see me when I was little! The next picture is Daniel, my brother Jason, his wife Erika and I. Can you tell that we are related?!


Daniels is bored with the entire process that is going on! He did have a very cute little sweater on though, and the shoes!

Today I have a birthday card that I sent to a very good friend of mine who lives out in Indiana. I had actually just gotten my box of goodies when I made this card so all of the stuff on it is from the 2014 Occasions Catalog that you can order from starting January 3, 2014! The base of the card is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper Pack*. The frame, filmstrip, camera and arrow are all cut out with the On Film Framelits Dies*. The frame from Coastal Cabana with So Saffron and the filmstrip and camera from Gold Foil Sheet. The arrow has a greeting from the Express Yourself Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango. The greeting in the middle of the filmstrip is from the Peachy Keen Stamp Set* and is also stamped in Tangerine Tango. It’s a fun colorful card and I love the gold accents. I hope that you enjoyed my birthday card and pictures for today’s post. Thanks so much for paying me a visit, have a great Thursday! 🙂
