A Birthday Bunch!

{This was supposed to post on Monday but I had some troubles with Blogger and uploading from WLW. }

We’re still in full construction mode here at our house.. all of the destruction is done (minus the removal of some old floor tiles) but for the most part we’re gearing up for the “put-it-back-together” phase.  The kitchen is mostly gutted (pics to come soon) and we have an inspection tomorrow PASSED our inspection YESTERDAY for our 4 way (electrical, plumbing, framing, etc) and then we can move forward… YAY!

I did take a break to create some birthday cards.  There were six, but one met an untimely death by gruesome mangling when I was moving things around down here in the studio so Brent could move the gas line (in the ceiling)… card #6 is now resting piecefully (misspelling intended) in the city landfill.  It was a third “banner” card and was so cute.  I will have to make another soon.

These cards were super duper easy to make.  I employed Mr Cuttlebug and raided the scrap bags for some coordinating colored cardstocks. The stamps are from PTI and are waaaaaay old.  I love this set because it’s got so many sentiments and small images.  There’s a lot of glittery bits (around the stars, on the cupcakes and banner pieces, etc – they look grayish) on these cards that was difficult to photograph, but you can see them a bit in some of the single pics.  I popped up the banner pieces with foam tape. I love the 3D effect!









Thanks for popping by!  Hope you are having a fantastic week!
