Birthday Card

I make a zillion cards, but I'm never good at sending them out. And, when I do they're usually late. I'm making an exception and finished this card today for a family member, that shall remain unnamed, even though they probably won't be checking out my blog.

The past week wasn't a good one for me. I didn't participate in any challenges and I would have liked to. I have been having issues with my back for the last month or so and in the past two weeks it has gotten progressively worse. Bad to the point that I am in constant pain and can barely sit, stand or walk and don't sleep well. I did get some new medication, but I am totally loopy when I take it and don't really feel like I'm with the program. I can only hope it gets better from here on out. I'll be starting therapy next week, so we'll see what happens.

Birthday Wishes

For this card I used a kraft cardstock for the card base and a silver metallic cardstock for the bumper and windows. It's hard to tell that in the picture. I also used pop dots for the Birthday Wishes and the bumper to add more dimension to the card. For the black background, I just scored the white cardstock and inked it. This is such a fun stamp!

I love my new card frog! Thanks goes to Micaela, the owner of Paper Studio, the local scrapbook store where I work, because she picked it up for me when she bought some for the store. I always see cards displayed on these and had no idea where people found them, let alone what they were previously used for.

That is a flower frog. There are used for making flower arrangements. Heavy metal ones like you have are becoming harder and harder to get. Lucky you, what a nice friend you have.
