Perfect Borrowed Birthday

And it’s the start of the three day weekend! I had a nice Friday, work was good, I snuck out at 2:00! I came home and worked on my card for today and Skyped with Andrea. Sandy stopped by to pick up something that she left at my house on Thursday night and she also brought over her goodies that she got in the mail and now I have a few more things that I want! We also ran to Michaels quickly! Anthony and Bill came to get me at 7:00 and we went to Smash Burger for dinner. I had sweet potato fries, onion straws and fried pickles along with my burger! I did share everything except the sweet potato fries, they are delicious because they are so nice and crispy! From there we stopped at Starbucks and I had a mini vanilla bean Frappucino. We met up with Marissa and her friend Gina at the bar and had a fun time. I came home and went straight to bed! LOL! Today I’m planning on stopping by Scrap-A-Latte for a bit and then crafting too! A nice relaxing start to the weekend!

I promised that I would get all caught up on my cards from the classes at Scrap-A-Latte so here are the ones from last month’s class. We featured Reverse Confetti and I had loads of fun making the cards!

RC Fragments-JK-WM

RC Donuts-JK-WM

RC Flower Shaker-JK-WM


Aren’t they fun?!?! I love the donuts and the cool fragmented background with the sequin paper too!

Today I have a birthday card for you! Have you ever gotten a little obsessed with a stamp set or a particular layout?! I am a little obsessed with a particular stamp set and layout lately and I love to see how many different ways that I can use both! The base of today’s card is Neenah Solar White 110lb. Down the left side is a piece of the Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape. The panel is a piece of paper from the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper Pack, it’s adhered to a piece of Fun Foam and then to the card. The wreath is from the Your Perfect Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive and cut out with another one of the fantastic dies from DiesByDave! How happy was I when I saw this one?! I punched out some flowers with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack from Blackberry Bliss and adhered them to the wreath with Bling Glue Dots. A few pearls are adhered to the centers with Crystal Effects. I cut out some Basic Black and Neenah Solar White 80lb with the Simon Says Stamp Wishing Die. They are adhered together and then to card. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Sending and Wishing Photopolymer Stamp Set, I heat embossed it on Basic Black with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and adhered it to the card with Foam Tape. Three sequins adhered to the card with more Crystal Effects compete the card! I really am obsessed with the Your Perfect Day Set and the layout, but I have used it for quite a few different style cards! I really hope that you enjoy today’s card and the cards from the Reverse Confetti class at Scrap-A-Latte! Thank you so much for coming by today! Have an super Saturday my friends! 🙂
