Happy Belated Birthday Card

Good morning all!!  I just returned from a fabulous 4 night camping trip with the family.  We had so much fun and seriously the BEST 5 days straight of weather I think I've ever seen here in Alberta.  No clouds, no summer storms, no wind - - just sunshine, heat & blue skies.    Lovely!!  

Now that I'm back - reality is sinking in.  My kids are in hockey camp all next week and then the week after that it is back to SCHOOL!    Summer seems to go faster every year.      Because we are busy with hockey next week - it means we have a bunch of back to school shopping to do this week.  I'm not looking forward to that as my youngest is NOT a good shopper so these outings can be somewhat painful.  I also still have a few things on our 'summer fun' wish list that I'd still like to do and am trying to figure out how I'm going to fit that in over the next few days as well.   Wish me luck!!

Here on the blog today thought I'd share another one of the super cute cards we made at CTMH Convention in July.

The stamp set used is "Pun Fun" - a must have for any cardmaker!   The clouds and balloon were cut with the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge.   Paper featured is the new Flirty paper pack.  Embellishments are the Slate Mini Medley, Black & Grey Sparkles and Silver Shimmer Trim, as well as the Harvest Bakers Twine.  Pieces are distressed and stamping is done with Slate ink.  And of course, everything is popped up with Foam Tape.  

Have a great day!  See you back here tomorrow :-)


  1. I love how your details pop off the page. This card is just way too cute! And..I would agree that summer is way too short. Good luck with the shopping trip!!!

  2. What a darling card. Such a cute little scene you've created.

  3. This is a very cute card! I love the clouds!

    I'm so glad you had a great camping trip with the family - these days are precious and it sounds like you are living to the fullest! HUGS!!!
