I’m a little late with my post today, I just can’t get going lately. It was also a busy day yesterday, I ran some errands in the morning to get out of the house. Heather does catering and I went with her on a deliver and then we came home and got ready to go to Daniel’s party. I stopped off to see my friend Renee on the way out east to pick up some stuff from her. The party was in Patchogue, it was fun and the kids had a good time. There was a bouncy house and lots of ballgame themed food. I took some pictures, of course I forgot to take pictures of the banners, but I did get some nice pictures of my peeps.

A really fun party with lots of great people.
On a side note and completely unrelated, I love quotes. If you follow me on Instagram I post quotes all the time. Some that I write and some that I love. I found this one this morning and it reminded me of when I was a younger. If I was feeling down I would take a ride to the airport and go to the International Arrivals Terminal and sit there and watch the people meet as they got off the plane. The International Terminal is good for this because the people have been away for longer and it’s so nice to see them reunited with loved ones. This quote I found this morning reminded me of that…
So, I think at some point today I’m going to go to the airport and just watch for a little while.
Now on to today’s card. I wanted to use my favorite greeting and the World Map Stamp so this is what I came up with. The card base is Whisper White Card Stock. I stamped the World Map Background Stamp on a piece of So Saffron in Memento Tuxedo Black. The Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Rectangles are used to cut out the map, frame and Vellum. The greeting I mentioned is from the From My Heart Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder along with the ship image from the Traveler Stamp Set. My frame is a piece of Basic Black and is adhered to the Vellum with SNAIL and then everything is adhered to the base. Not a very complicated card and the Stitched Frames make all of the layers east to cut out. I also love Vellum over another image in the background, it always gives it a little depth while keeping the card easy to mail. I hope that you enjoyed my card and the pictures from Daniel’s 1st Birthday. I also hope that you enjoyed the quote, I’ll post more of them here as I come across them. Thanks for spending a little time with me today. Have a good Sunday! 🙂
