Melon Berry Birthday

So one of the downfalls about going a while without crafting is that you lose mojo and creative flow. For inspiration or down right CASEing I go to a lot of the amazingly talented girls of Papertrey Ink. This card was very much cased (with the products i had on hand ) from THIS post by Nichole Heady aka my stamping hero!! The background was stamped with Close to my Heart Spot on Backgrounds with PTI Vintage Cream ink. The Fun Pass stamp is also CTMH Ticket Tags I believe is the name and stamped it in PTI Smokey Shadow. Button and Ribbon PTI Spring Moss. I used the Stampin Up punch for the notebook effect. I would love to chat a bit but i must be getting ready for Bear Camp. which is a type of open house for new students and parents of middle schoolers. WHAT?? middle school already? wasn't she just born yesterday? Sheesh!! Thanks for coming by for the visit today!!

Happy Birthday to YOU!

HELLO long lost blogging friends!!!
Sure hope everyone is doing well on this blazing hot Wednesday. Okay, so getting this house together has taken WAAAAYYYY more time than I anticipated or wanted. But... it is looking more like a home. We just finished the kitchen which required one coat of primer AND two coats of paint... ugg.. we did not skimp either we bought the good stuff from Porter Paint!! Oh well it looks great now. we still have the living room to go.. but I am hanging my painters hat up for a while. anywhoo.............. i have gotten in some play time!! here is one of the first cards i have made in a very long time. I already had the poofy flowers made from around Christmas time. I decided to use them up on this 5x7 card. The heart punch is from fiskars. the blue vinyl letters are the paper studio. not sure about the black polka dot paper. and the happy birthday sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Thanks so much for visiting me. sorry it has been so long. I am so excited to check out everyones blogs that i have been missing. Have a GREAT night!
