Hi everybody! Surprise, I'm here again already! This year I will try to post more often than last. Too much time was passing between posts toward the end of the year, and I want to do better. You are important to me, and I certainly don't want to lose touch.
This Birthday card was quick and easy to create. The patterned paper, stamps & flower dies are from Stephanie Barnard's The Stamps of Life. I love her (fairly) new Birthday pack because it's full of fun, bright patterned paper. I enjoy the variety of colors on this particular paper. After die cutting the flowers, I added an enamel dot in the center for contrast.
Another goal I have for 2017 is to get back to entering more challenges. I really slacked off on this last year, so it's time I jumped back in and participated!
This card will be entered into ModSquad Challenge, which is asking us to post "Anything But Christmas" cards. I'm also entering this into Seize the Birthday Challenge, which says "Anything Goes" -- I can do that!
For some reason, I don't have a badge for Mod Squad, but you can click on the link for either one of the Challenges.
Before I go, I wanted to share a picture with you of my 2016 Christmas gift from my family. I was totally surprised to see this huge box arrive at my door and find it to be a Yamaha Grand Piano Keyboard! I played piano most of my life but had to sell my piano a few years ago. It really made me sad to see it go, and I haven't been able to play since. My family recognized this and brought music back into my life. I'm so thankful!
Happy New Year to you! Keep music in your heart and love in your soul. With that, you'll have a wondrous 2017!
Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and your visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~
