Birthday bubble


So, I've had an exhausting past two weeks in everything except scrappin' - I've been chillin' and rollin', making some cards I can't wait to show you. :)

The third card (the others will be shown soon enough ;)) I made using the kraft paper my AWESOME DT boss Judy sent me...

No ribbon - how weird is that for me? I was really tempted to add it in there somehow, but just...let it go. ;)

I used the Moxie Fab sketch, Lucy's challenge, and was totally inspired by THIS card by Mariana Grigsby. 

I cut out the Cosmo Cricket image, sewed it, and attached it to a little folder I cut free hand. Then embellished the image and folder, and put the entire decorated piece on top of THIS fun digi by Hero Arts. Easy peasy. :)

Now something I want to talk with you about; it's getting to be that time of year where school is finishing/piling up, and that means volleyball is finishing up, which means more practices and tournaments. Thus, the exhaustion and the missing of many good things made by all my dear bloggy friends. :( Hopefully once summer gets here, I'll be able to get back on track and share some of the love that I have been blessed with. :)

Thanks for sticking around!
