Birthday Card with Vellum

I’ve got a quick birthday card to share today! It is actually my hubby’s birthday, but this one is quite feminine. At least I had birthdays on my mind, right?

I followed a tutorial by AJ Otto on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog as inspiration for this. It’s not an exact copy of hers. I used vellum and Adhesive Sheets for the label and tiny die cut words. All the details & link to AJ’s post are on the Inspired Happy Birthday Card blog post.

A Birthday Card

I’ve got a post-n-run (or not run) today.  Here’s a birthday card I put together in a jiffy for Stacey Caron’s birthday on the Spellbinders Blog today.

The base is from Grand Squares, the distressed flower is newsprint patterned paper spritzed with Glimmer Mists, and the polka dot paper is from Fancy Pants Designs, Delicate Dots cut/embossed with Grand Scalloped Squares.  The Fancy Tag is the opposite side of the same paper.  The leaves were from leftover paper from my Altered Purse project on SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™’s Blog, and cut/embossed with On The Vine in my Grand Calibur™.

So when your 9-year-old nephew hassles you to post on the blog, (Sup, dawg?) you know you’ve been a little behind.  So I do apologize, Here are my top 10 excuses.

1. Holidays.

2. Crazy-busy CHA Prep with Spellbinders – don’t miss the Sneak Peeks next week!!  This is the BEST collection we’ve ever had.  Seriously!

3. Crazy-insane-busy big project with Spellbinders.

4. Hour long visits for Chiro/PT so I can get back on the treadmill and faster than 3.6.  Who knew I was so messed up? And could someone find my metabolism?

5. Did I mention crazy-busy?  Can I get some volunteers to un-deck the halls?  Or should I leave the Christmas trees up until February, like last year?

6. Mountains of laundry, organized unions of dust bunnies, and other random distracting items. No photos, too scary!

7. A new website for my blog.  Yeah, DH got me all set up and I started fussing and now I’m kinda stuck in decision-making paralysis on a few things. I know, just do it and keep fixing as I go along. When I get a spare moment of sanity, I will.  Be gentle on me!

8.  I just can’t decide on my OLW.  Not that I have made it past a few days, but it seems like a good idea.  So far “DUH” is the front-runner.

9. Couponing.  Is it worth the 2 hours of time setting up my store card, printing and clipping coupons, to spend another 2 hours in the store making sure I’ve got the right products and sizes, to save $15?  I love the thrill of saving $$, just not convinced its worth the effort or time involved.

10. Girlfriend.  She’s like 55 in dog years, according to the chart at the vet, but she is still acting like a silly puppy! Such an attention hog! But she’s not as fat as I expected (a round 58 lbs) while remaining significantly happy.

TGIF!
