I don't know about you...

I don't know about you, but I never have enough birthday cards, we seem to go through them so fast! So here is a quick and easy one I made up for several challenges, LSC201 (limited supply) challenge over at SCS The challenge was to use some of your favorite things. So my favorite things on this card are, the ribbon, corner punch by SU, stickers and the stamp company Stampendous. There is also a challenge over at Stamp Something which is to use something new so I used my new Petal Plus set that I got inky for the first time. And last but not least the IC161 (inspiration challenge) at SCS.


I used the Petal Plus set and stamped the wings on decorative paper, cut them out and added glitter glue. The body is stamped in black, colored with mint Twinkling H2O's and covered in Dimensional Magic to make it glossy. Circle stickers are added to the sides of the "happy birthday" and to the top corners of the stamped image.



Here is the family celebrating the New York New Year's Eve! There is Paul my DH, Greg my DS, Melanie my DD and Alisa my DDs friend. Since we live in California we were celebrating at 9:00 and good thing to my DH and I tried to stay awake but just couldn't do it, of course the kids were up until the we hours of the morning.
Hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year!

Jamie, your family is fabulous. I raised 5 sons. what a trip that was. Loved every minute of it, to look back on it now. I love the butterfly. I have 16 birthdays or anniversaries to have cards for this month. At first count it was 14, then I remembered two others today. I look forward to your post.
