A Scrappy Birthday

I needed to make a birthday card for a friend I’ve known since junior high.  Her birthday is just a couple of days before Christmas, and I remember how she didn’t like having a birthday so close to Christmas because she didn’t feel like her birthday was very special.  So I always make an effort to give her a birthday card that is non-Christmas-y.  It was fun using some bright colors again.

A Scrappy Birthday

I used some of my paper scraps on this one.  I love this pack of dsp, and save all of my little scraps from it.

Topsy-Turvy Convention Swap

I was able to attend Stampin’ Up’s annual convention in Salt Lake City last month.  It is always such a fun time!  I get to see friends from around the country that I made through Stampin’ Up, there are fun and informative classes to attend, and I get to swap cards with other demonstrators.

This is one of the swaps I made and took with me.  It’s definitely a bright and cheerful card.

Enjoy your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
