A Simple Birthday Card

Hi everyone!

I didn't get much in the way of crafting done was so beautiful here that I spent the day outside getting the laundry list of things done before the snow begins to fall which could be tomorrow for all I know.
(I hope not...nit quite ready yet!)

Anyways I have a pretty busy week coming 10 year old is going in for surgery on Thursday to have his tonsils and adenoids removed so I have to make sure everything here is done so I can devote all my attention onto him.

I have a PTO meeting tomorrow night and I volunteered to be the staff card maker this year :)
Actually they usually just buy cards but this year I will be making them....all 100 plus of them.
Unfortunately we decided at the last meeting to play catch up so I have been busy going through my stash of already made cards and coming up with all but 10. Not bad!
I just thought I had so many more birthday cards....guess that will be my card focus for a while :)
Anyways here is my quick and simple card using all scraps
I used a Martha Steward punch and a piece of scrap DP .
All the edges were inked with coffee bean pigment ink and
the sentiment is one of my dollar finds.

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you all tomorrow!!

  5. What an awesome card Jessica - and your already did 10 and you need to do 100 - woo hoo that is alot but I'm sure you'll be able to get them down in no time..... Hope all goes well with your son surgery, my son had the same type of surgery done when he was 4 years old.... He always would have a cold and he would breathe through his mouth....His going to be top shape when his re-coops from it.....
