A Beach Birthday

Boy how time flies.  It's Saturday again!!!  Time to reveal the last of the marathon birthday card creations.  My dear friend loves the beach, and is fortunate enough to have a beach house to enjoy.  So it was only fitting that her birthday card be a beach themed one.

I just love being able to use files from ScrappyDew.  This week I have used the file called Honeymooners.  Only I did some creative editing.  I use the wonderful cutting program Make The Cut.  I was able to mirror the girl on the blanket and make her bigger (i left out the male figure, sometimes a husband just gets in the way).  When I pieced together the file I also had to do a little trimming to remove the un-needed areas.  The base of the card in a box is made by Core'dinations and called Gemstones.  Aren't the embellisments wonderful?  I found these on a trip to the local St. Vinnies thrift store.  25 cents for a package of EK Sucess is pretty darn cheap.  I created the words in MTC also and used the clear pop bottle strips to support them.  Here is the finished card from all angles.

Happy Birthday!

Love the paper for the flaps

In the coming weeks I have a couple of scrapbook layouts to share and a batch of graduation cards.  I am also thinking it is just about time to start Christmas projects. I have a bazaar that I show my creations the first weekend of December.  I really want to have a fantastic showing this year! (snowed last year

Oh, oh, oh I have to tell you I had a blast for my birthday mothers day celebration.  All 3 of my girls took me to a wonderful little bistro called Word of Mouth for breakfast (holy cow it was the best I have ever had).  Next was a trip to Craft Warehouse for some supplies.  Then headed on over to the casino for bingo and buffet (crab feed anyone?)  Sunday we visited some nurseries (one with a petting zoo, and NO i did not bring home the baby goat) and a beautiful iris and peony garden.  (pics to come with layout later)  It was the best time in ages.  

So take care my friend, bright blessings for the coming week!  Jana

    OK, this just made me laugh (I left out the male figure, sometimes a husband just gets in the way). LOL
