birthday hello

Hey crafty friends!  Hope all is well with you.  Not much new to report around here except I have been enjoying a lot of time in my craft room. I'm also still decluttering, getting rid of stuff I don't use, using stamps I haven't used in a long time (or ever! LOL) and using up paper scraps. This week's card for the 'no topping' challenge at Seize the Birthday is definitely an example of using up scraps (apologies for not remembering the source of the scraps!).  Had a lot of fun with this card, putting on a bunch of little fun things. I think it worked out well.

Hope you can play along with us this week.  All the details are over at the blog. Be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the design team and our new Surprise Party Guest, Anita Bowden.

Have a terrific day and a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!  Always appreciate your comments.
