Happy Birthday!


How are y'all today?  I'm glad it's Wednesday, and I have tomorrow off.  I plan on being a total bum, playing with my new Simon Says Stamp goodies.  If anyone needs me, I'll be in my room. lol

I'm totally excited that the House of Cards challenge blog is up and running, as of Monday.  My cards aren't due until the third week of each month, but I am going to try to create a card each week this month, to show my support.  Here is what I created for week #1.

There is an awesome photo posted, with a fantastic color combo, that is very fitting for this holiday week.  The theme is Cute & Fun.  I'm hoping I pulled it off well enough.  I'm not much of a cute and fun person, but I dig how this turned out, and I've got another card for the card box. Yay! :o) 

I've also combined the following challenge in my card:

Kaboodle Doodles #178 - Flag Colors (USA is red, white & blue)
Craft Your Passion #169 - Red, White & Blue
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
ODBDSLC160 - Patriotic - Red, White & Blue

I do hope you'll head over and check out the challenge.  There are some fabulous cards posted by the DT.  Maybe you'll be supportive too, and join us?

Have a great 4th of July holiday weekend!

Ok Steph -- you threw down the gauntlet by making a cute and fun card when it was not our week! (just kidding) I'll try to come up with one too. Love the polka dot paper and how the card looks kind of like a wrapped present. Thanks for joining in on the first challenge!
