Calling all card makers.

Howdy. Did you have a nice weekend? I never get as much done as I originally plan but this one turned out fine. One of my co-workers asked me weeks ago for a birthday card for her 60th birthday. ~ Well Tuesday's the day. Yesterday as part of my errand running frenzy, I took a break at Tara's Personal Scrapbook store. Among other fabulous finds, she pointed out these new designer papers. I love polka dots so it was an obvious choice for me.
I started this card with Jen's SFYTT. Then I changed a little or a lot depending on how you look at it. That happens to me more often than not ~ how about you?
I cut the 60 and the scallops out with my Cricut and new Mini Monogram cartridge. I was disappointed when the 6 and 0 didn't match but not enough to figure something else out! ha!

Summer's flyin' by!

I hope you are a having a great summer. Remember earlier this summer, I met with life long friends. Their oldest son, my friend Benjamin is leaving for Merchant Marines. He was appointed but it will be bitter sweet for him to leave his family. Their middle son Zach, has a big basketball tournament in another state. I looked across the lunch table and realized a couple of things. I don't know their youngest child as well as the teenagers and it didn't seem she had as much to look forward to as her older brothers. After I sent the first card, she sent me a butterfly pencil eraser. Isn't that sweet! This card is my interpretation of Jen's SFYTT. Have a great week!
