Happy Birthday Carla!!! Surprise, we’re early!!

So, another one of our fabulous DT’s is having a birthday soon! It’s actually not Carla's birthday until July 1st, but we thought we’d trip her up and do her birthday blog hop today, because she wouldn’t be expecting it ;) We’re sneaky like that…hehehe ;) So, Happy Birthday Carla!! You’re an amazing lady so filled with talent!! I hope your day is filled with Awesome-ness :) Here’s my card for you: (you’ll have to forgive me, but I have been so busy lately I finally had time to make your card tonight (it’s 1am as I blog this) and it was a super quick one, but it’s made with love!) Oh, and I’ve been staring at this card all night trying to figure out the last little thing to finish it off and I didn’t once notice that I embossed the stinkin thing upside down!! So now, if you notice in the corner, there is a lovely little upside down 13…I’m just going to say it’s a 31, because that’s how old you are Carla…right?!?!?! I totally meant to do that!

I thought I’d try my hand at a shaped card this time too, Counterfeit Kits is challenging us to use a shape on our card or layout…I used the Quickutz gift set (gingerbread) to cut the card out (it’s a mini album cover page, cut out twice and glued together!) I’m also entering this into the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. They want you to “get edgy” and use a border punch on your card. I used one of my new ek success punches :)



Well, Carla, I hope you have an awesome day on your birthday, and enjoy the hop!! Next stop is the fabulous Janet. Have a great day Girl!!
