Calling All Birthday Cards

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

As I was doing my usual blog surfing today, I discovered that Gretchen Barron is celebrating a birthday soon and would like handmade birthday cards sent to her so that she can send them to From Our Hearts.  (Read Gretchen's post here).  As soon as I read it I thought it was a great idea, and although I had some birthday cards on hand to send, I decided to make another one.

I can't resist Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and I'm glad I was able to participate in the challenge this week (I'm not always so lucky)!  Her layouts are always so awesome!  And to double the fun, I used the colors from the Curtain Call 30 color challenge.  {Sweet}.  I'm on vacation this week, so hopefully I'll be able to spend lots of time in my stamp room.  I've got a lot of things on my vacation to-do list, but I think I can squeeze some stamping time in!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
