Sarah Kay Birthday

First, I like to apologize for not leaving comments on your blogs as I usually do. It just seems that the day has only 4 hours anymore, instead of 24. The days just seem to go too fast. Between working, taking care of the house and keeping in contact with family and friends by email there is just enough time to quickly check out every bodies wonderful creations.

I made this card last weekend for a friend, who's birthday was last Monday and I haven't been able to create anything new this weekend because I was preparing to send a lot of genealogy information to a lady that just started out researching her family. Genealogy is my other obsession. At least I don't have to spend the money like I do for my craft stuff, just hours of research on the computer.

Now a bit about the card. She likes red and black but I had to add some white and gold. The red CS is my favorite red from SU and the white and gold is from a MS Christmas collection. The circles were cut and embossed with the round nestabilities and the hearts cut with PTI heart dies and PTI felt. The butterflies are made with MS punches and I added some pearly accents with Liquid Pearls. The cute Sarah Kay image is colored with Prisma Pencils.  Ohhhh... and the ribbon is from my stash.

The inside is pretty simple. I just continued with the same theme, circles and hearts.  I hope you like my little creation.

This week I received a few of the new LOTV stamps and a new watercolor paper that I like to try out and hopefully soon I will have a new birthday card to show.

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment, if you like. Again, I want to apologize for not leaving my usual comments.
