A {Happy Birthday to You} Card & A Blog Award...

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

Hey guys!  I hope I'm not the only one dragging today.  We had a really busy weekend.  We went to my son's baseball game Friday night, went to the Red's game Saturday, went camping in the middle of nowhere Sunday and Monday, came home and went to a 4th of July party.  Needless to say, my card for today is ultra simple because that was all the energy I could muster.  

Last week I hauled all of my boxes of cards upstairs and separated them into categories.  This way I know if I'm deficient in a certain area.  It seems that I use birthday cards the most and I need to stock up.  So, today I have a birthday card to share.  All you need to make this card is some card stock and a corner rounder punch.
I popped my panels up on foam dimensionals for a little added interest.  I stared at this card for a long time thinking it needed something, but I couldn't figure out what to do.  I wanted this card to be masculine and every idea I had used rhinestones or ribbon.  In the end I decided to keep it plain, it's more graphic that way.

Over the weekend Kelly from Finding Time to Stamp gave me an Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award.  Thank you Kelly!  That really made my weekend!!!
These are the rules about this award:

1) Send a thank you to the person who nominated you and include their link.
2) To accept this award, answer 7 random facts about yourself.
3) Pass the award on to at least 8 other awesome blog buddies 

Here are 7 random facts about me:
1. I just learned how to crochet and just completed my first project, can't wait to start my next one.  I'll share it with you here soon.
2. I despise the word AIN'T.
3. Today I finished a 28 day Plant Based Diet Challenge.  The diet has a lot of similarities to to a vegan diet.  Speaking of diet, it's more of a lifestyle change and not a diet diet.  I've tried so many new foods and recipes.  I have NO cravings (which is totally bizarre because I'm always craving something sweet or salty), my energy doesn't dip in the afternoon, I'm rarely hungry, and I've lost five pounds.  

4. My running has been sporadic.  Since the kids have been out of school it's hard to find time and when I finally get time to myself, the last thing I want to do is run. 
5. My husband and I are celebrating our 9 year anniversary tomorrow.
6. One of my card making goals is to have a card on the cover of a magazine.
7. I hate camping.  

Here are the bloggers I'm passing this award on to:
1. Who is Tracy? 
2. My Paper Secret
3. Basement Stamper

4. Damask Love
5. DoubleStick Heaven
6. Show & Tell
7. Simplicity
8. Stamps & Taxes

Have a great day!

How sweet- thanks for mentioning me Dana! Hope camping wasn't too horrible for you. LOL I used to get dragged into it many years ago before I was married. Now, luckily, my husband isn't into camping so I'm saved that at least!
