Happy Birthday to Me....again! :-D
Carol and I had a fantastic lunch at Cracker Barrel, and we enjoyed looking in the shop a little bit. They know longer have the BLT salad that I loved, but I found a grilled chicken breast with bacon and colby cheese, etc. on it that both Carol and I ordered and LOVED!!! Before we left I found a new cross necklace and earrings in the clearance section of the store that I LOVE!! So I am very happy about that!
We saw a movie and then ended the day with ice cream at Culvers. And it was a very nice birthday treat. Thank you again Carol!
Back to today's card. I made 6 of these on Monday night. The back ground pattern paper is some of the very first pattern paper that I got with my Stampin' UP! starter kit. I also had sheets of pink and brown too. I remember how much I loved that paper. And knowing the hoarder in me....I probably was saving this for a special project. If you saw the paper stash I have today...you would know that it is now okay to use it! ;-) I have an extensive stash. But back then I didn't. I love pattern paper as much as I do fabric. I love color, and I love patterns. So today's card is a mixture of old and new. The happy birthday is from the SU stamp set Perfectly penned, and the flower is called Triple Treat. It was named that because if you stamp it three times in different colors like I did, you can use three different punches to punch out the images, or you could cut them out by hand too. It is a simple layout...but it makes a striking card! Off to la la land for me! Happy Wednesday! Love, Elaine
