A Red, White, and Don't-Be-Blue Birthday ...

Pin It

Happy Monday, crafty stampers ... hope your weekend was fabulous!

Today's card project was created for my birthday card stash using a patriotic color scheme and a large, swirl-infested sentiment stamp.

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all the fascinating product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Soooooooooo, this weekend Sheila and I decided to do a little mall-crawling. And we decided to go w-a-y downtown to do so.

Concerned about theft, Sheila removed the GPS system from her car and stuck it in her bag when we got there.

We immediately popped into Lord & Taylor and while there, the GPS came alive and a voice stated, "Lost satellite contact."

We weren't at all embarrassed until a woman turned to Sheila and said, "Your ankle bracelet monitor is talking to you."

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
