Happy Birthday, Dear Friend (and USA, too!)

Soon we will be celebrating the Fourth of July here in the U.S.A.  When I was picking out a card to share with you today, I decided to share a card I made for my friend Asia's birthday this week.  I think it is appropriate also for wishing America a very "Happy Birthday!"

Stamps: Stampers Anonymous, Simon Says Stamp
Paper: Simon Says Stamp
Ink: Memento Black, Archival 
Misc.: Copic Markers, Corner Rounder

You may have noticed that I haven't been blogging that much lately.  Lots going on currently, and with summer added to the mix, time has been flying by.  I made a promise to myself to slow down and enjoy the nice weather, and to work on myself a bit!  Working on getting more exercise and making better diet choices.  Wish me luck!

Wishing all those in the U.S. a very Happy Fourth of July!

Until next time!

Good luck with your goals, Winnie! I know it is hard to change bad habits into good ones.

Cute cupcake card. I have a Christmas set similar to this style...haven't inked it yet. I like the CAS style of this card, so maybe I'll get those stamps inky soon.

I really like the clever way in which you added the sentiment to your friend's card. It has a very seamless and graphic feel to it. Have a marvelous 4th of July with your family, and blessings on your new life choices.

What a great card and I especially like that it's a cupcake! :) Good luck to you and I think that it's great you are taking time for yourself! I need to that for myself and often forget with work, home and always constantly being on the go! Happy 4th of July to you and your family Winnie! :)

So adorable. - your friend will be so pleased!

I applaud your choice to "enjoy" the quickly passing summer. Taking time to "smell the roses" is so important, and I know you will enjoy yourself. Hugs to you!
