Happy Birthday!

Pin It

Happy Thursday, crafty stampers ... hold on, the weekend is in sight!

Today's card was created for my depleted birthday card stash using some fun banner stamps, old patterned paper, a few buttons, and some super-yummy silk ribbon:

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

Sooooooooo, yesterday while I was hangin' out at Sheila's, Reid-the-Wild-Child had his friend, Brian, over to play.

When it got a little too quiet, Sheila asked me to stick my head in and see what the l'il rascals were up to.

"Do Dads always snore?" I heard Brian ask.

"Naw, only when they're asleep." Reid responded.

Thanks so much for swingin' by the ol' blogstead today ... I ♥ it when you do!
