Happy Birthday...And Many More...


Before I get to my card today, I have to take a minute and thank you for all of your super sweet comments on my post from yesterday.  They all made my heart so very happy.  Thank you for taking a minute to share a bit of yourself too.  I really appreciate it.

Now onto my card for today...we have five Mondays this month, so that means it is time for an Anything Goes challenge over at PaperSmooches.  It's your chance to play along with your PaperSmooches stamps and dies and create anything your heart desires.

I have been pinning a few more things lately on Pinterest and decided to make a card inspired by this pin on Pinterest.  I loved the way the buttons were attached.  Instead of making a bracelet, I thought it would be fun to make this card.    A great guy birthday card if you ask me!  I added two sentiments from the Birthday Sampler and we were all set!

Come play along with us at PaperSmooches...we'd love to see what inspires you!  Don't forget to check out the gorgeous creations by the other design team members!

Oh that is adorable. I do like the button treatment. May have to try that one out sometime.
I missed yesterdays post so I took a peek today. What a beautiful post and such gorgeous flowers. Yep life moves quickly, I sometimes think about how fast Coleen is growing up and while she is only 8 it just seems like time is flying by with her. Cherish these moments for sure.
