Happy Birthday to me....

January 14, 2010

Hi all!  Well, I am officially 30.  Yet, I still feel like I am in my 20's.  So- life is still good! Tee hee!

It is going to be just a quick post tonight.  Sorry I haven't had until now to get a post done....we have just been out and about doing stuff, and hanging out together.  I have one little card to share with you today, and that is my card for this week's sketch at CPS.  Such a great sketch this week....this is what I came up with.

"Celebrate Moments" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Rub-on: Urban Lily
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs & Jesse James
Corner Rounder: Marvy Uchida
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Embossing Folder: Swiss Dots by Provo Craft
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridge: Graphically Speaking, A Child's Year by Provo Craft

Instructions: Fold white cardstock in half to make card base and round the bottom corners.  Emboss the front of the card using the Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Cut the sentiment strips at 1" from pink, aqua & yellow cardstock using a Cricut Expression and Graphically speaking cartridge.  Cover the back of the aqua strip with yellow cardstock, and round the bottom corners.  Adhere the strips to the front of the card as shown.  Round the top corners of a block of cardstock, and adhere the rub-on sentiment to the bottom of it.  Cut the candle at 2 1/4" from pink & orange cardstock using a Cricut Expression and A Child's Year cartridge.  Cut the flame from the orange cut, layer to the pink candle cut, and accent with an orange jewel.  Adhere the candle to the white block, and then attach the entire block to the front.
