Happy Birthday card

My honey's birthday is today. So much going on this week at work makes me feels exhausted at home. This morning I skipped my morning work out so I can make He's card & wrap he's gift.Of course I had to enter a few challenges at the same time. Well on my way out (rushing) I see a tree service cutting our neighbors trees. Well my honey commented on how he would like to have our tree trimmed, so I took a chance. I hope I don't come home to a tree limbed holed roof!!I'm saying prayers as I'm typing this out. My card will be entered in:
Doodle Palace - Use Red,White & Blue
Bitten by the Bug2 -Cricut cut (rectangles George)
I went home for lunch and no tree limbs on the roof. It actually looks pretty good.
Thanks for Stoppin by

Today I excersized, created a card, blog surfed, cleaned house and cooked dinner. Boy am I tired. The card I created today is for My Pink Stamper, which was to create a card using Green, Yellow & Brown. I used Just Because Cartridge...but without the cake cut. The digi is from Pixie Dust Studio called Annabelle. The background paper has all three colors and all pieces I used were scraps...sorry I don't have their names. I got a lot done this weekend and hope to get Sam' card in the mail tomorrow. For more information on how to Help send cards to Sam go to Kathy's blog at Pixie Dust Studio.

I had so much fun makeing my card and watching my movie I lost all track of time. Here's what I used to make my card.I digi from Pixie Dust Studio called Buddies, paper from scrapbook kit by ATD (momenta) called the Great Outdoors.

Making Cards on Mothers Day for Caadvarks Challenge

Caardvarks has started their monthly challenges. I actually like the once a month challenges because it gives you more time to be creative. Now I know I said I was going to try and use my scraps this year, but will...I cracked. I bought a new scrapbook kit by ATD (momenta) called the Great Outdoors. I also had this lovely digi from Pixie Dust Studio called Fishing Friends. While I was browsing through my paper pack I thought ^^ this would be great with my new digi^^!
Anyhooo I think the card came out lovely and all the paper except the blue came from the paper pack, the blue was a scrap...OOOh I sewed some fishing string on the rod & reel, I also painted yellow on a little pom-pom to make it look like a bobber. Hope you like it as much as I do.
