Happy Birthday

Wow..there are a lot of birthdays this week-Robyn from My Pink Stamper, her friend Karlee and today is also my birthday! I certainly have some good company. Happy birthday to all my January birthday friends!

I found the quote on my card above, in my stash of old papers and decided to design a card with it in mind. It says:
"You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream."
I think those are very good words to live by.

Card Recipie:
  • Card is Archiver's fuschia 5x7
  • Cup is cut from Gypsy Wanderings-Anna Griffin paper
  • DCVW mat stack tan paper embossed with a Cuttlebug folder-Pagoda cherry blossom pattern-I cut a hole in the paper to let the pink card show through the coffee cup
  • Happy birthday is from Geroge and Basic Shapes
  • "Ribbon" is black cardstock with white gel pen stitching

I entered the card in two challenges:

1) My Pink Stamper: Make Something Yummy-I love a good cup of coffee, so I chose a cute coffee cup with a heart from Cricut Gypsy Wanderings as my favorite yummy treat!

2) FCCB-#44 Neglected Cartridge-Use a Cricut Cartridge you haven't used in a long time. I seem to have quite a few that fit the category so it wasn't too hard to find one to use. I think I need to do that more often.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
