Another year wiser.

Hello!  I’m back.  I leave you for a week and then I come back and post twice in one day. *Smile* That is the way life rolls sometimes, right?

And guess what? Not only do I have a second card for you today, it is a masculine one. Go ahead, gasp in shock.


I used Smarty Pants from TSG Stamps to create a birthday card. I’ve had the idea for this layout scribbled on paper for over a week and thought it would work perfectly with the owl from Smarty Pants.


If you have been visiting my blog for a while, you know how much I love to pop up portions of images with dimensionals so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I did so again.  And of course, I had to add a bit of Glossy Accents and a few pearls.  I used to be addicted to brads and then I switched to rhinestones but lately I’ve been all about the pearls. Makes me wonder what I will switch to next.  Hmmm…

Before I head out, here is a side shot of the card so you can see all of the dimension.


Later gators! I’m off to eat some homemade Barbeque Chicken Pizza. Mmmm… hope it is tasty.
